Design meetups in NYC oriented more towards graphic/visual design?

I like IxDA NYC events a lot. But I am also interested ones that are a
bit more visuals- and graphic-design-oriented. Do you go to any
similar NYC events/communities that are more along those lines?

Who codes your production HTML/CSS/JS?

Who codes your production quality HTML/CSS/Javascript? Where in the
organization do they sit and do they do more than just
HTML/CSS/Javascript (ie, Java, mid-tier, etc)?

I'm trying to gauge how closely connected to the Design resources
they are, are they more aligned to Design or more to Development?

The guy that owns the comic store (holds the 24 hour comic session) I
frequent suggested Flight and has some affiliation with McCloud. McCloud
wrote that one comic my beloved ux teacher recommended (understanding
comics) and when I went to order the comics my champion IxDA LA leader
recommended the owner suggested FLIGHT.

optimized keyboards(lay-outs) target users?


there has been a discussion here on who might be target user of redesigned
optimized keyboards (lay-outs) here: professional typist or the one who is
about to get familiar with typing with keyboards?! that is if I'm optimizing
a keyboard in user centred design process, which of those two should be the

side says: if a professional typist could type with some optimized lay-out
well, then the one with less knowledge of computer should enter text well
too; the other side says vice versa.

Hi everyone

The next Canberra IA Cocktail Hour is tonight, Thursday 23 April 2009.

intranets they are doing more than just ‘finding’ information. They
may be looking for something they know about or exploring something
brand new; filtering through large volumes then comparing results;
getting an overview of a topic or diving deep. They may even think
they want to find one thing, but actually need something entirely
