NYC thanks Luke Williams, Icon Nicholson, and all event attendees

NYC IxDA sends out kudos to Luke Williams of frog design, who gave a
superb presentation last night to a standing-room-only, overflow crowd
of 75 attendees. Our deep appreciation also goes to event host, Icon
Nicholson. The group was enthralled by Luke's thought-provoking
discussion on how humans interact with shapes and objects at a
fundamental, cognitive level.

Implementing I/A and web strategy when you don'thave control of the content

Hi Todd:

I've seen many projects like this one, and there are some good patterns I
bet I and others can share.

But first: the big thing you didn't include is what the goals are. You've
mentioned a series of constraints, but not the goals. A redesign can mean 50
different things. As long as everyone understands that making big
improvements will be more difficult with the constraints you've mentioned,
then you can still be set up to succeed. But if everyone is expecting the
world, and they don't recognize how challenging the landscape is, you are
set up to fail.

Implementing I/A and web strategy when you don't have control of the content

Hi - I'm working on two similar projects, which are site redesigns of
entire web presences. The common factor between both is that we have
varying ability to alter or change most of the content--or the I/A it
supports. For example, consider redesigning NY Times, but only being
able to affect the main page and some personalization features...but
not the layout, I/A, or presentation of any section like Health,
Finance, etc. Much of this is political, some of it is technical. Some
of the content _is_ unique enough to look and operate differently. But
my question is this...
