Austin UPA // July 30th // Video Game Usability Testing - Answering the Why

Timothy Ballew of 8-bit Bear Consulting will discuss the importance of
iterative usability testing during video game development. Topics covered
during this presentation will include a definition of usability, how gaming
usability differs from regular usability, why usability testing is not the
same as QA, examples of gaming usability testing and other relevant topics
(time permitting). This meeting is organized by Austin UPA, a chapter of the
Usability Professionals Association.

While it's not a deal-breaker, please RSVP so that we can get a rough
headcount. See the RSVP link below.

(Job) Senior Interaction Designer; New York, NY; Full Time; The Cementbloc

Buzz. Most agencies want it. A few try to fake it. Even fewer maintain
it. Since 2000, the cementbloc has been generating what most people
would call buzz. But we are not most people. We are a unique community
of 4 independent healthcare agencies known collectively as the
cementbloc. Our ethos is cemented in generating something far more
important than just buzz.

So what then is that sound you hear when you step off our elevators?
It's actually the sound we live for: the sound of good ideas at work.

The cementbloc is currently seeking a Senior Interaction Designer to
join their team.

Prototyping tool is looking for a new name

Dear IXDA list

You may already know RapidRabb.it: it is a real time collaborative
online platform which enables individuals and teams to create
interactive web and software prototypes fast and easily, and to test,
discuss and optimize them.

Now, we are looking for a new name. Although we liked our current name
very much, it comes with some disadvantages that lead to this
decision: especially when talking on the phone, people do not
understand the name and the writing. In addition, some asked us
whether we are an Italy-based company, which we are not.

Try the IDEO site. They have done a lot in Kenya. But this is not a
typical NPO.
