IxDA "contact us" form is broken & list name suggestion


http://www.ixda.org/en/contact_us/ doesn't work properly.

I was about to send a suggestion via the feedback form, but after
submitting it: "Permission Denied. The URL http://www.ixda.org/en/
contact_us/ cannot access CIB. Check config file."

Anyway, here's the suggestion that the CIB didn't receive :)


Could the IxDA discussion list subject tag be capped simply into
[IxDA] please?

The current tag is rather long.

ADMIN: Summer is arriving ... Some tips regarding e-mail list etiquette

Going on vacation means, setting those wonderful out-of-office reminders.
These are great when the recipient is sending a message to YOU. They know
who you are, and care whether or not you are in the office or not.

When these responders are not so useful is when the are sent to people who
send you a message through an e-mail list.

[QUAR] What tools do you use for prototyping?

How about a working definition of 'prototype'?

Prototype -- 'A visual approximation of the form and/or function of an
intended finished product with a level of fidelity appropriate to the
project lifecycle and intended audience.'

Such a definition acknowledges that there is no single method of prototyping
that fits every situation. The definition also suggests that the prototype
serves the project but it is not the final deliverable.

So, a design mockup would function as a prototype with a certain degree of
suggested function.

what is interaction design

Hi everyone,

I know this subject came up before, but I'm still very confused about how to define roles in all this terminology of UX UI IA etc.

All I want is to find a job with my skills, and often times I'm intimidated with the terminology. So my skillset is Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Flash, some HTML, CSS, and some AS3, could I be a UI designer?

I've designed websites in the days of dreamweaver, and I have designed my own wordpress site recently, so I do get by with some web dev coding although it's not my edge. I am mostly visual and conceptual.

I was reading this paper by Philip Galanter on "What is Generative
Art?" and came across this

"Science generally proceeds in a reductive manner, the thinking being
that by breaking
down complicated phenomena into its figurative (or literal) atomic
parts one gains
predictive and explanatory power.

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.
