Online Newspapers as Wikis

Hi guys,

Long time lurker but first time poster. I'm usually a bit too shy to
post but I'd really love to hear people's opinions on a project I'm
working on at the moment.

The main concept of the project is to foster involvement of the
general public in the daily news cycle, and ultimately to improve the
print edition of newspapers through a combination of reader
participation and traditional journalism.

The Politics of Design

I read this essay every three or four years. I find it to be the most
accurate expression of what I feel day to day in my chosen
profession. I'm sure many of you will figure out who wrote it very
early on, but try to not skip to the end if you can.

Please forgive the transcription errors. I still am a terrible typist
even after all this time.


The Politics of Design

It is no secret that the real world in which the designer functions
is not the world of art, but the world of buying and selling.

Chicago IxDA Social Event: Wednesday, September 12th

After some behind-the-scenes planning with some great local IxDA-ers, we can
now say Chicago has a local IxDA group!

While we plan on having topic-driven, interactive monthly events starting
Wednesday, October 10th (more to come on that, stay tuned!), we wanted a
chance to meet each other before then.

Documentation Version Numbers

I'm trying to establish a documentation numbering standard for my team,
and there is some initial resistance to the approach I've used for
years. I'm wondering what approach you all use, or what your opinions
are on the merits and drawbacks of these two approaches.

Approach A: Every revision of a document is given a new integer-value
version number. For instance, Site Map v6 is updated and becomes Site
Map v7.

Approach B: Every version of a document made during the "Define" phase
of a project is numbered 0.x.

[F2F] IxDA meeting: Mar 10, 19H30 - Fringe Club HK (MTR Central Exit D2)

Sending a reminder to the global list in case there is anyone new around.


Dear all,

It's time for another gathering on Tue, Mar 10. Our monthly meetings
had some breaks, but I guess the busy life of HK justifies that.

Where: Fringe Club HK (MTR Central Exit D2)
When: 7.30pm, Tue, Mar 10

The format will be casual, but all are encouraged to bring something
to discuss -- recent work, an interesting topic, a question.

I'll share my insights from the Interaction Design conference in
Vancouver (5-8 Feb).

Testing a hypothesis

Interesting quote from Wikipedia:

"Most laws of nature are statements of the obvious, restated in less

CfP: A classroom exercise which helps make our research more accessible...

For those of you who are involved with teaching....

I'd like to propose a classroom exercise, which is both fun and which
helps our community make its research more accessible:

I call it "a misDesign" - a rhetorical vehicle, which aims to tie
research themes to short, simple, and funny examples of defective

I've written two examples of 'misDesigns' to provide inspiration.
