IxDA Board of D...

Reviewing nominations for the 2010-2012 IxDA Board of Directors

I'm happy to let the community know that 20 people (which includes 2 current
board members) have put their names forth for consideration for the IxDA
Board of Directors.

IxDA relies on the leadership that emerges from the community, so we are
very thankful for this show of support.

Next steps:

We plan on notifying the nominees of the Board's decision no later than
December 18th, 2009. After acceptance of the position, we will then
announce the 2010-2012 Board to the community.

Any suggestion for design training for a beginner?

I¡¯m a Year 3 student in a business school. However, I want to apply
a graduate program of interaction design.

I have only a year before application and decide to learn by myself.
Some knowledge can be acquired by reading books and articles. But
I'm really confused about how to practice "design".

As far as I know, design relates painting, photography, expression of
color and material etc. I had learned painting for 6 years, 2 years
for sketch.

Thoughts after IxDA Boston demo of Litl

I just posted some of my thoughts about the Litl, after seeing it at
last week's IxDA Boston meeting.

http://abbett.org/post/litl-it-thinks-it-can

Long story short: I think we were all surprised to hear what sounded
like their utter disregard for (or ignorance of) the user research
process.

Best,
Jon

Best non-Flash sites?

I've been looking at agency websites for the past couple hours on theFWA.com
and my eyes are bleeding. It's one bizarre Flash disaster after another.

Does anyone have a favorite site (or resource for looking at some) that is
both engaging & cool AND usable?

Deciding whether to use a "Show n items perpage" control

Do you have research to support this? I'm neither agreeing nor
disagreeing with you, I would just like to see the test results so I can
make up my own mind.

Incidentally, we've discussed the infinite scroll before recently.
There may be some more ideas to consider in that thread:
