Re: [IxDA] RE: [IxDA] ATM interaction design

First off I just wanted to mention it's nice to have the excuse to talk about ATMs in terms of usability. Like the microwave discussion, this sort of thing makes me really happy I joined this listserv.

RE: [IxDA] ATM interaction design

Bank of America ATMS have had the envelope free deposits for like a year now, sounds like the new Wells Fargo ones are pretty similar. I've actually found them quite an annoying experience. It takes practically twice as long because there is more steps...telling the machine what kind of deposit (cash or check) and verifying the amount and what kind of receipt do you want.

Coldfusion 9 & JQuery

All,

I am trying to tie Coldfusion backend with jQuery front end. I am having a difficult time finding resources that are easily understandable. Does anyone know of simple and effective tutorials that tell you how to communicate with a database via Coldfusion and jQuery? Any input is valuable and if someone knows the answer to my question off hand, I am open to learning.

Thanks,

J

Interview on IA Podcast

Hi all,

I recently approached Jeff Parks, host of the IA Podcast, about sharing my perception of UX and IxD from my standpoint as a developer. I thought some of the people on this list might find the discussion interesting.

RSE10 Video: Kars Alfrink on Transmutation

Kars Alfrink presented at Raum Schiff Erde in February 2010.

The talk¹s title -- Transmutation -- refers to alchemists¹ quest to turn lead into gold, which sometimes feels similar to what we¹re trying to do with pervasive games in public urban places.1 To summarize: I start by talking about the fact that games are essentially useless, and that this means applied game design should look for useful results in second order effects. I argue that the contribution of urban games lies primarily in the increased diversity of use of our streets, which is a good thing in itself.

Re: [IxDA] where to use eye tracking?

I'm with Jared,   Eye tracking tells you about common user bahaviour, how people read pages and what they are likely to look at. If you're farily clued up on that already and know your theory it is unlikely you'll learn anything new.  Eye tracking tells you what people are looking at but not what they are seeing or what they comprehend.  Contextual studies and talking aloud during traditional testing will tell you far more than eye tracking can and are still needed to make sense of any eye tracking work you do.
