Thumbnail calendars and philosophical waxing

Hi y'all!

Please forgive me if this topic has come up in the past, but I'm wondering
if the group has any ideas about the persistence of thumbnail calendars
(often appearing in interstitial rollovers, with dates as potential live
links) as a reappearing trope in interface design.

I'm trying to discuss this interface feature with a client at the
requirements stage, and I'm encountering resistance to the very idea,
particularly on the development side.

This strikes me as odd, especially since I've used the relatively simple
code myself on personal projects (we've seen this all over on blog

[PLUG] Workshop • Wireframes with EightShapes Unify • August 21, 2009 • Washington, DC

[Please forgive the cross-posting!]

The holy grail of design documentation is efficiency. You want to spend your
time solving design problems, not fiddling with annotations or getting your
wireframes to line up just so.

EightShapes Unify, a collection of templates, stencils, and components can
help you get there.

Request for advice to undergraduate Industrial Engineers (Human Factors Stream)

HI all,

I am currently in my 3rd year in Industrial Engineering at University of Toronto and am going through the job hunt to look for a full year internship in the area of Interface design,  information architecture and usbiliherty analysis.

However Im finding it extremely frustrating that there are no (might be an exaggeration) internships out there for undergraduates. They all seem to require masters degree or experience.

Value of utesting a client driven marketing site.

I'm currently working at an agency and am trying to figure out the
value of utesting in this environment. Our current process does not
include utesting of any sort. It's mostly client-driven design through
back and forth conversations.

For the client I'm working with, the site basically markets a product.
The creative thinking revolves around the marketing objective of
making their products appear to be top quality.

work, but the communication of our ideas. Boston IxDA is thrilled to host *Amy
Cueva,* Co-Founder and Chief Experience Officer at Mad*Pow, who will be
conducting a “how to” session on getting started with comics from a
strategy, process and tools perspective.

Hi everyone,

I want to point you to an international survey studying the effects of
cooperation on work conditions, and discriminating agile teams/companies.

Here it is :

The results will be very interesting for the community, gaining some insight
on how cooperative really are agile teams (vs non agile organizations).

Thanks for helping to promote this study.
