IxDA NYC Design Studio Event Recap

Hi IxDers,

This is a delayed recap. On October 25th we hosted a new kind of event in
NYC in a design studio format rather than our normal presentation style. The
event was a success and we wanted to share with you in case you want to do
something similar in your area.

A short recap of the event:
A group of 30 designers came together one night and worked together for 3
hours in a studio setting.

Now in English: Swedish Master's program in interaction design

Dear colleagues,

This info might be of interest considering the recurring list topic
of advanced educations, master's programs, etc.

The two-year advanced program in Interaction Design at Malmö
University is one of the best recognized in Sweden in its field. It
was started in 1998 and leads to a master's degree for Swedish students.

Starting this Fall, the program is offered in English for
international students.

Yup, u b right ... But ...

I think that there is definitely a trend to be moving in this direction.
This can't just happen. We have to earn our stripes and we need to work with
the best allies we can find in the organization.

Magic Wish #2 for IxDA

Local groups are great. There are a lot of people who are working hard
to bring interaction designers and other interested folks together
locally on a regular basis.

Wouldn't it be great if local groups had a dedicated space that
brought events, discussions, and jobs into a local-centric space?
Wouldn't it be great if ixda.org could expand the ability of local
groups to communicate & collaborate?

Your wish is about to be granted:

Launch is set for 5 days and counting!

Offtopic: What music do you listen to while you

I CAN'T listen to vocal music while I'm concentrating on something else. Well, cooking maybe. But not thought work. I occasionally listen to instrumental music of various sorts, but mostly I go back to (relative) silence.

Re: Beyond big personas and power points

1. Personas are a heavily culture-loaded technique and should be
treated as such;
2. With all their benefits in mind, personas may not work universally,
because in some cultures seemingly complex things may be preferred
over seemingly simple things;
3. All tools of our trade (especially those working with qualitative
information) have to be considered for their cultural applicability,
before being preached as universal.

I think it's a sure bet that personas are culturally loaded.

Cross media bar experience?

Hi - and thanks for the great discussion that's going on here!

I'm currently looking into different ways of navigating and interacting with small handheld devices. In a recent discussion my team begun to discuss the Sony Cross media bar concept (XMB) and its pros and cons. Does anyone here have any thoughts in the matter? Some of the issues that I (personally) are thinking about:

* How well does the solution scale when there is a lot of content? Lots of labelling of content required in order to be useful?

* Is it a good solution for all kinds of interactive spaces?

Your inspirational ideas

Hello list,

I would like to ask you a question: if you would have today the chance to write a University Thesis about IxD, what would be the topic you would love to deepen?

Thanks in advance for your time,
I wish you all a wonderful day!
