(Job) Senior Interaction Designer; New York, NY; Full Time; The Cementbloc

Buzz. Most agencies want it. A few try to fake it. Even fewer maintain
it. Since 2000, the cementbloc has been generating what most people
would call buzz. But we are not most people. We are a unique community
of 4 independent healthcare agencies known collectively as the
cementbloc. Our ethos is cemented in generating something far more
important than just buzz.

So what then is that sound you hear when you step off our elevators?
It's actually the sound we live for: the sound of good ideas at work.

The cementbloc is currently seeking a Senior Interaction Designer to
join their team.

To become an UI designer

Hi everyone. I have a question for the UI designer who are employed in the field already.  I am studying UI and web design at a college right now.  My program should be over by the end of this year.  I want to know when I am applying a UI designer job, what kind of stuff should I show them since I don't have any experience before.  Also,  I am currently employed as a graphic designer, should I show them the stuff I do right now?  Any help from the experience designer will be great.


Thank you

When designing "apps" for gesture recognition, what is most appropriate to use? A UML User Flows or a Service Design Blueprint?

Any insight or suggestions are helpful!

Decision Trees (was Report Back from IxDG NYC Face-2-Face)

<Ben>My favourite management consultant, Gerry Robinson, writes about this
his book "I'll show them who's boss" (which supports the 2 TV series he
did for the BBC). He calls it "decision tree", and espouses it as the
the ideal way to proceed dynamically through a complex problem, focussed
on a goal, and avoiding getting bogged down on too much detail at
I did quite a bit of work on the idea of decision trees to underpin IxD a
few months back and they suffer certain quite fundamental problems.

How Many Users Suffer In Silence?

Does anybody have a reliable stat on the ratio of the number of users who complain about something to the number who just suffer in silence?

I'm looking for some way to say "for these 5 complaints there are probably xx many more people out there annoyed but not bothering to complain."

Thanks in advance.
