What's next in my learning and how do I get it?

I thought I'd get people talking about what it is they are looking to learn and where they are hoping to learn it kinda question.

There's a lot of formal EDU in IxD being created all around the world, but obviously, not everyone can jump into a 1-2yr program. So my question is what do you think you need to learn to be a better practitioner of IxD and how do you want to learn it?

UI patents

Hello everyone!

I have been mining the web via google for information about u.s.
patents granted for (graphical) user interfaces.

Does anyone have any knowledge of information repositories of ui
patents, critical reviews of these patents that would maybe
contain understandable summaries of the patents or other publications
that might summarize gui patents somehow??

Best regards,

Ville Tikkanen

Hole-in-the-wall project

Some of you will enjoy knowing about the Hole In the Wall project:

The nub of the gist (from worldchanging.com):
The concept is so simple that it stands on it's own.

Put a computer where kids can use it. Leave them alone. That's it.

When you think about it, children learn best out of curiosity. If you
make a child do something on a computer, it's work. When they get to do
it on their own - it's play.

Sorry for bringing up a pesky off-topic issue again, but...

These screen size discussions ignore mobile devices.

Fedora Installer Rapid Ethnography

I was hoping some of you could help me out. I want to do a rapid ethnography study on potential linux (i.e., Fedora) users. I plan for this to be extremely informal, where the the user can stop and talk at any time.

Three main tasks

1. Interview: This will include questions to develop a persona, demographics, lunix usage, computer type etc.
