A few issues, but we're under way

Hi Everybody,

Just a quick note to say that we're excited to launch the new site, but there appear to be a few issues related to email.  We're working on them and will have things fixed up as soon as possible. 

If you requested a password and haven't received the email yet please be patient, we're looking into it.

Stay tuned for more updates as we work through these last few things.

Thanks for all your support!

We're Moving!

Hi Everybody,

The moment is finally here, IxDA.org is going down for the launch of

*Important Steps to Get Your Account Running*

When the new site launches, we need existing members to take a simple
step to get access and continue your participation. We need you to
visit the new website in order to request a password.

Existing members will need to request a password:

Patiens Virtus Est (Conan Update)

In other words, forewarned is forearmed.

When the new ixda.org launches Sometime Sunday, a body of the
Interaction '10 videos will be present in the Resources section.
Needless to say, the complexity of getting all 60 or so videos
titled, tagged, compressed, and uploaded takes time & bandwidth.

So it is likely that the IxDA '10 videos will be in the process of
being uploaded early next week, rather than at launch time.

Pretty simple layout. The purpose of the pages on this site is to redirect students to other portal or resources.

Interaction 12 Goes to Europe

Interaction is the annual conference of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA). Interaction 10, held at the beginning of February in Savannah, Georgia, attracted a sell-out crowd of people interested in the practice of interaction design.

The Waiting Is the Hardest Part

We’re almost there. Almost. The new ixda.org is about to launch. Check
out Liz Bacon's blog entry about Conan: http://bit.ly/9kxQAn

To make the change, we have to let ixda.org go dark for a bit.
Starting at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (GMT – 5 hours),
ixda.org will not be available. In addition, you will not be able to
post to the list through email, either.

Quick & easy methods for usability testing micro-interactions?

Hey everybody,

I'm looking for suggestions for ways I can usability test some
micro-interactions on the site I'm working on. We've worked out a
bunch of the big questions - the flow and IA seem to be working, the
visual design is adding to the content, and users are enjoying
themselves on the site - but a handful of issues regularly pop up
that I would like to be able to test out with some users.
