NYC Interaction Design Studio Event Kudos!

A standing ovation goes to everyone involved in last Thursday's sold-out
Second Annual Interaction Design Studio:

- talented leader-facilitators Liya Zheng and Jeanine Harriman

- generous host Roundarch (particularly the lion-hearted Victor Lombardi,
who also contributed thoughtfully to the critique and blogged about the
event)

- esteemed and inventive attendees

- the tireless team of IxDA local leaders whose volunteer organizing efforts
made this event possible

Our evening kicked off with pizza and salad, courtesy of our thoughtful
host.

Ivrea Legacy ... Its like impressive

While the Ivrea Institute for Interaction Design is gone, its legacy
is alive and well.
http://is.gd/4yXk (Core77.com article).

I have to say that the people I've met connected to IIID were some of
the best, brightest and most thoughtful Interaction Designers I've
met. I'm sorry this resource is gone, as I think it was something
special. I wonder if anyone can really recreate it.

Tips, Tricks, and Techniques

[Originally appeared on IAI's mailing list. A couple people suggested I post
this here, to IxDA's discussion list, and provide a little more context.]
<context type="more">
If you didn't see Jared Spool's keynote at the IA Summit earlier this year,
you missed an interesting perspective on "user-centered design". One of my
main take-aways was that the key ingredient to a successful design team is
not a solid, formal methodology.

Designing Installer for the Mac

Hi,

I'm currently designing a Visio flow regarding a MPKG installer for Macs, and am wondering how I can make the experience more visually compelling and clearer for the user.

When I look at how to install Firefox on a Mac (http://tinyurl.com/4lt6cy), particularly the third image (http://tinyurl.com/5vp6ll), it looks really cool, simple and straightforward: drag icon 1 onto icon 2, following the instructions on the background graphics.

My installer works differently: you insert the disc, double-icon the disc
