iPhone SDK

So, are any of you excited by the opportunities offered by the SDK
announcements yesterday? Having access to multi-touch, gestures, the
accelerometer, and location-based services—the possibilities for
innovative, or at least unique/interesting/fun interactions has me
salivating. I know nothing about Objective-C, but I sure am tempted
to get my feet wet.

interactions magazine

The March+April 2008 issue of interactions magazine has emerged from
the printer and should be appearing in subscribers' mailboxes soon.

As subscribers and other recipients have seen from the
January+February 2008 issue, the magazine now has a very different
look and feel, and content that reflects a new vision.

Remote usability testing

I've been recently tasked with testing users on a call center application...
here's the kicker -- the client doesn't want to foot the bill for air
travel. I will have access to video conferencing and I think that I will be
able to use some kind of web conferencing software (like WebEx), but I've
never had to do anything like this. Does anyone have experience with remote
usability testing? Any recommendations on how to carry this out?

Thanks in advance!

SHiFT is looking for speaker suggestions

SHiFT (Social and Human Ideas For Technology) is an International Conference
that takes place in Lisbon, Portugal. The second edition is going to take
place this year on October 15 to 17. I'm part of the organizing team and we
are now looking for people to suggest speakers. Since we are having a User
Experience track I thought that it would be a good idea to ask you to
suggest some speakers names.
