JOB - Interation Designer Architect at Carol, Plymouth, MN, full time

Carol, The Care Marketplace is a venture-backed health care/technology
start-up based in the Twin Cities. Carol is redefining the purchasing
relationship between consumers and health care providers with a
Web-based, retail marketplace in which local health care providers sell
health care services directly to consumers.

You can shop for most products and services. Why not health care?

In most industries, information about services, price, and quality are
clear and available to consumers. But health care has been different-
until now.

"Manifesto of the UI" - A UI Developer's POV


Hi guys, the above link is to a blog post by a UI Developer blogger. Lots of
what he is talking about is the stuff that we talk about.
It just highlights to me this notion of people are doing interaction design
without knowing they are doing it.

Just great!

Statistics, Facts, Reports on PDF vs. HTML

I am working to make the case to some of my company's IT professionals
that the decision to go with PDF delivery for certain reports rather
than HTML is a bad one.

I've read all of Nielson's articles on PDFs as well as rebuttals by
various individuals (where they only seem to point out that PDFs can do
more than just be for print; include hyperlinks, interactive forms, etc.
but not that they do these things well enough to remove usability

Can anyone else point me to statistics or reports on PDF vs. HTML and
PDF for onscreen reading.

Seattle Monthly IA/UX Meetup - February 12th (date change!)

Once a month, we get together to have drinks, chat, network, and geek
out with fellow information architects, librarians, usability experts,
user experience designers, and other like-minded user-centered
professionals and students. It's open to anyone, so bring a friend --
especially those in other local organizations! The format will be
casual, but all are encouraged to bring something to discuss -- recent
work, an interesting topic, or even your resume.
