same time.

Do you know any digital products that combine tool and toy in the very

[EVENT] IxDA Toronto - UX Show and Tell Night, Mon Feb 1st, 7-9pm

Our next IxDA Toronto event is going to be a UX Show and Tell night


You come with interesting deliverables you've worked on (or are
actively working on), and share them in a casual setting with others
interested in UX.

Tell us how you communicated your ideas in the face of design
adversity! Alternatively, get feedback on a work-in-progress.

We'll see how things shake out the night of, but we'd like to set
up a number of roundtables with 8-10 people each.

Creating Interactive PDFs - Need help

I've written a usability report that I converted from Word to a PDF (based on limited tools I have to work with), but wanted to add some interactive elements in it -- namely the ability (1) to show larger images and (2) play embedded videos from a link.  Unfortunately, despite the limited tutorials I've found and Adobe's mediocre help content, I haven't been able to figure out how to do it, and was hoping someone else has done something like this.

I've never done anything to subscribe to the jobs board, and yet I get 7 job postings per day, it seems like.

So let's look at this rationally. The organization needs money. There are several ways it can get it:

  1. Charge for membership and lock the mailing list.

Software Websites: Box Shots?

Imagine you design Websites for software products. Your company's
products are compelling and well designed. What do you put on your
Website homepage? How do you fulfill your mission of distinguishing
your product suite when some of your products are similar?

To add more context, imagine you know that many of your customers
will download the software on the spot when they visit your site. A
few will order physical copies.

The defacto standard seems to be box shots -- thumbnail images of the
box the software comes in. Is that how you would approach the design?
Why? Why not?
