My new webpage

Hello members,
I have changed the content of my webpage www.amroha.dk
At the moment I am scanning all my projects and also uploading pictures of
my family and I. This means that none of these are available at the site.
BUT please let me know what you think of the colours chosen and style etc.
With regards to links, I can paste your webpage beneath the 'Stuff about
Interaction Design....' if you want me to.

Please critize, praise, comment do whatever you want. After all I want my
users/readers to be pleased >)

Interaction Design Career Path

Hi all.... I can't remember whether there was a conversation about career
paths in our realm, so I thought I would start one. Currently I am a senior
IxDer and starting to plot out my career path. Would love to hear from
those who were in my shoes before that made the transition to the next step.
I'm curious as to not only your personal view on the career path, but the
employers' view on career paths in this realm too.

Question: How to show discounted pricing to members without logging in to a site

Hi everyone:

I have a question.

One of our clients is a publisher who, in order to protect their
distributors and partner booksellers preferred pricing, know they can only
publish their LIST price on their web site. However, they wanted to know if
it were possible to show member pricing without the user having to log in.
There is no login requirement on the site, as its promotional.

I know that many retail stores online who heavily discount merchandise as a
loss leader, display a price when the user digs a little deeper, and then
actually adds the product to a cart.

Theory Where that ACD thing fits

This discussion on UCD/ACD has been both frustrating and enlightening.
The single biggest thing it demonstrates to me is just how thin our
understanding of theory is, and the impact that theory has on how we

What do I mean by theory? Theory is a robust conceptual framework that
undergirds a practice.
