designing for behavioral change for the purposesof sustainability

This is a fascinating topic to me, in part because it runs into what feels
to me like a sort of knee-jerk resistance.

In the first place, let me say that I think it would be much better if
designers (and everybody else) got on top of the challenge of designing
products that are not energy hogs, to obviate the need to teach people how
to use their stuff so it doesn't waste energy doing nothing or to use it
more sparingly, or whatever.

JOB: Information Architect (mid/sr), Boston, *very creative agency*, ux-recruiter

Hey everybody,

Was so cool to meet all the Boston IxDA'ers at the Boston Beer Works social
last week! Thanks for showing this NY recruiter a good time. ;)

I have an IA job at an interactive ad agency w/ a very diverse, creative
client list----the culture is very relaxed, casual/funky, and creative RULES
the roost like no other place. I must be demure about sharing the client's
name here, but I'll tell you that once folks find out who it is, they get
pretty excitable.

the release cycle

Hi everyone,

This question is a little outside the scope of IxD but is closely
related to one of our goals: getting our work in front of real people.

What I'm interested to know is - in the web world, how do your
companies approach new releases?
How much time is spent on QA, and how often do you release improved
versions of your product - be it fixes, or new features?
What's your release criteria?

I know this tends to be different for different types of companies...
but would love to hear what works for you.

Any usabilty studies on free hand gestures?

Hi All
I am working on the design of a free hand gesture based interface (not touch
interfaces - but free hand gestures performed in the air in front of a
sensor system) and am failing to find any published usability studies in
this field. I have found a lot of technical papers on how to
extract/recognize gestures from the visual domain, but nothing on what might
be considered better gestures and models. I am trying to minimize the amount
of testing I will need to do in order to decide on the geture language to
adopt.
