What is the one *best* interaction design blog?

I'm updating my feed list. Typically, I find things through
serendipity or links-followed. I figured I'd ask the crowd for wisdom.

What is the one *best* interaction design blog that you absolutely must be read?

HCI Masters in the UK - City University vs. University of York

Hello,

I recently got offers from City University and the University of York
to pursue an MSc in HCI.

I am really torn between which university to attend because both seem
to have excellent masters programs. Does anybody have any experience
or feedback regarding the two programs and universities?

Any advice will be appreciated!

Thanks,

Ajax product configurator examples

I'm helping a friend who has a small business (total employees: 1, total
budget: $0 or maybe less) brainstorm ideas for a custom product configurator
for his website. Similar sites might allow you to see the clothes on a model
and change shirt colors, add various designs to a t-shirt, or customize your
new Mercedes colors, wheels, etc. He's curious to find out if this sort of
product configuration can be done well using Ajax/Web 2.0 technologies.

Other companies like Frog or Ideo

I'm curious if people knew of other companies that were like Frog or Ideo.
Product Design consultancies that merge traditional industrial design and
emerging digital design into a next venue for interaction design?

I want to be a bit more proactive in my search for a perfect job and maybe
look for people to do some information interviews with. I'm particularly
interested if these companies are somewhere along a major NYC based transit
system.

Personas: how many is too many?

There is this project I'm working on that is for pet owners, breeders
and vets. They have identified 15 consumer types between the three
main segments I've mentioned. The client is requesting we create
personas for all 15. In my experience I've rarely have had to create
more than 4 on any given project. For this project I believe I can get
away with 3.

Does anyone have any thoughts as too what is too many or too few
personas? Have you come across a similar client request? And how did
you deal with it?

Thanks,

Open source wireframe software

Hi All,

Any recommendations for an open source wireframe tool? Something that is
similar to Axure - the license is too expensive for me.

Thanks,
Oliver
