Whiteboard/Web-Conferencing Software?

I work as an Interaction Designer for Business Objects in Vancouver and I am
in need of Whiteboard/Web-Conferencing software so that our team here can
effectively communicate with the other half of the team in Paris. We want
to be able to review screenshots, Flash, and PowerPoint presentations while
making notes on an upper transparent layer. We don't necessarily need
application sharing, simply the ability to communicate suggestions. We've
tried Microsoft's, Live Meeting, as we have pre-existing accounts, but it
doesn't seem to have the features we are looking for.

IxD and related roles - is it about naming or type of company/products?


Does anyone know of a diagram or scheme that situates IxD and other
related (or somewhat) positions?

Last weekend I met a few friends all coming from an engineering
degree, working in different countries and having related roles (I'm
simplifying a bit!!) but with different names. To mention a few of the
roles: Interaction Designer, Functional Analyst, User Experience,
Business Analyst.

The work is done and presented in different ways, however there is a
common item - gathering user needs and specifying them.

Secondary Research Methods

First time post!

Recently I've been reading / hearing / conversing about how to
identify your target demographic and what constitutes secondary
research and the difference between that and marketing.

I have heard several different views from clients / contractors and
employers from basically - the company does user research for
everything including information serach into the broad scope to
identify demographics and revenue - to that of marketing who
identifies the demographic and user researchers "deep dive" into the
user types, tasks etc.

Does anyone have any views

"focus not on membership"


In a variety of posts recently, you've said something
like this:

"AIFIA has made certain to focus not on membership but
on furthering information architecture."

Could you explain a little bit what you mean by this,
and what you think are the implications?

Getting into interaction design

Hi all,

A couple of questions to put to the readers here.

I have a degree in psych and a PhD in HCI both from good universities
and want to get a steady position in this field. I've done industrial
work (human factors multi-company collaboration into commercial
aircraft cockpit design - assessment and some design) and commercial
work (workflow apps both desktop & web-based, scientific desktop app,
oil exploration app - design, assessment, development) and educational
(commercial VLE - assessment).

On the topic of Recruiters

Ok, I just received the 2nd recruitment email for exactly the same job
from exactly the same recruitment agency.

I'm all for getting IxDAers jobs (who wouldn't be), but I'm not
convinced that recruiters should be able to post to the list.

Also, there is a difference between a company posting a opening
themselves (hopefully they're participating in the community
beforehand) and a recruiter posting a "mystery" job for someone else.

I feel that we should make a reasonable effort to keep a discussion
list for discussions....and filter out things that aren't.

So I wonder...
