[JOBS] Dev IxD, Info Designer, Central NJ US, Infragistics, Full-Time

specialization in interaction design that is not standard.

Who is Infragistics <http://www.infragistics.com>? Among other things, we

[anthrodesign] Don Norman: Technology First, Needs Last

Great reflexions, but I strongly disagree with the basic assertion.
What gave birth to that "Technology first"? Airplane for what? Radio
for what?

A miracle? Or an accident? Well, accidents did give rise to
technologies in the past, but none of those mentioned in the article.
The biggest missing thing here is that no technology comes up in a

Sorting with the word "The"

Can anyone offer an answer as to why iTunes disregards leading "The"s when
sorting Artist names (putting "The Fall" right next to "Fats Waller") but
puts all the "The"s together when sorting by song titles?

Interaction08 has over 315 attenees and at current rates will sell out soon.

are well on our way to selling out way in advance of the conference itself.
Here are some of the energy makers going on:

* Our tremendous program of keynotes, invited speakers and lightning round

Purely for interest's sake...

Has both touch screen and tactile inputs. Although it's a tad pricey. Anyone
