You can now make online donations to IxDA via PayPal (including major credit cards)

It took us a little bit longer than we wanted to, to make our online
donation process official, but now it is.

Deconstructing the new Myspace demo

A video showing the coming redesign of Myspace has been making the rounds for the past day or so.

I decided to break it down screen-by-screen and see what was really going on in the new interface:

html forms and autosaving

Good evening everyone!

I've been asked to write a letter of recommendation on topapply.com
Usually, they have very lenghty forms, as you might imagine.
Mine had 5-6 textboxes, as well as other elements.

I hit Save for Later and the form resets.Only the first textbox remained
I hit Back, but no, redirection was in place... somehow, my browser
didn't save the fields.

So my question is... how does one avoid this? Are there any already
implemented (preferably open-source) solutions out there?
An out-of-the-box standard thing to autosave everything...

Examples of fun digital tools wanted

I'm working on an article about produtainment in interactive design,
that is, products that are designed to be useful and playful at the
same time.

Do you know any digital products that combine tool and toy in the very
same product? Please let me know.

I've managed to find these two examples:

Question about resume/ portfolios

Hi Folks, I curious to know people's thought are on what would
constitute a good portfolio for an Interaction Design/Usability job
seeker. I essentially straight from grad school to teaching;never had to
review resumes in my previous career :) and now my students are asking
those type of questions. Hopefully people have some experiences to
share/advice I can give to them. Should they avoid flash online
portfolios? Do them only in HTML..etc

Livescribe Pen / was: User Research: Three user groups, five hours. What would you do?

Hi Eva,I've been using the Pulse pen since it came out and find the pen and
the software quite good. I used it at our user conference and even gave it
to some users so they could describe something to me while they drew
diagrams. I found the sound fine and there are some adjustments for
sensitivity and a special mike that you wear. I like that you can use codes
to note where there was something useful. The software allows you to speed
up the sound which is helpful and since you can bookmark or code good stuff,
the pen is quite useful and efficient.

best online survey apps?

I'm going to be setting up an online survey for a
select group of users. I'd like the survey to be kind
of "smart" ie. being able to have selections and
rankings in 1-4 question affect what gets shown in the
last question to assist in ranking.

If you have worked with anything like this or any
online survey apps, let me know and I'll gather and
repost to the list.

Is user research a band-aid for "the listeningdeficit"?


I developed a mural process to help companies draw knowledge about customers
out of different parts of the organization and make it visible to all and
available to design teams.
