Hallo again,

It's time for the March LA IxDG F2F! More specifically, it's the March 16th,
Los Angeles, California, USA, Interaction Design Group Face-to-Face. It's an
event where we can socialize, network, and debate the meaning of life, I
mean, interaction design.

RSVP (to me) not required, but always appreciated.

RealWorld HF/Design Question

Car blinker light remains on after you shut engine off and leave car.
This was designed by BMW Mini.

Upon returning to my car from a short errand, I notice my right brake
light and turn signals were on (solid light, not blinking). No other
lights were on in or around the car. I got in the car and hit the
brakes to potentially unlock the lights; I thought it could have been a
software error. The lights stayed on. I turned the car engine on and
off: no change, lights still on.

Re: [IxDA] Username vs. Screen Name

Are you asking about the concept or the labeling?

For the concept, there are valuable "identity" consideratinos from social design patterns at http://habitatchronicles.com/2008/10/the-tripartite-identity-pattern/.

For the labeling, I understand "username" as authentication, and "screenname" as display, which despite bound to the same person, must be kept separate for many reasons you can read on that link above.

Good luck!

Printing onto Post-its from Excel

I'm doing an affinity diagram exercise, and I want to avoid hand-writing individual observations onto post-its. Does anyone have an Excel spreadsheet template that can help me transfer data onto 3" x 3" post-its that I can output from a laser printer? Thanks!

How do post a new discussion on the ixda.org

Sorry about that, what I meant was, How do post a new discussion on
the ixda.org. If it turns out that I can't, here it is.
I know of a recruiter in Austin, TX looking of IxDs.

Differnce between user interface andinteractiondesign?

> So in that sense they are a truly UI designer.

I dunno, that sounds like a visual designer to me -- which, in my mind, is someone who's able to skillfully adapt the craft of graphic design for an online medium.
