[Event] Chicago IxDA --Topic: Sustainable Interaction Design --Wed October 8th

Hello fellow Chicagoans,

Please join us on Wednesday, October 8th for our next Chicago IxDA

Frank Gruger, and his colleagues from Orbitz, will be facilitating a
discussion on Sustainable Interaction Design. As interaction designers we
may have felt immune to the call of sustainability and the green movement.
Up until now it seems to have been largely the concern of architects and
industrial designers connected to the use of green materials.

Ubiquitous computing -- Pulse livescribe smart pen

The pen can record both drawings/notes and sound simultaneously (and links
them to each other). It is also hand-held computer, "paper" calculator,
translator, paper piano player (whoo-hoo! -- at last), and other yet to be
designed "paper" utilities/games:

trying to keep up with the lecturer.

Audiobooks from memos, presentations and even books.

Hello members,

I am about to make some research on an idea. Basically its an online company which wants to create audiobooks from memos, presentations and even books.

Why?  People have a need in the fast society to memorize presentations, etc. and dont have time to read in a car, packed public transportation etc. The audiobook will allow just that. There are computerized voices but they suck and cannot come close to an audiobook produced by a human.

Touch screen with buttons, drop-downs in touch screen

Hi !

This is my first posting here, I’ve enjoyed reading many discussions in the past, so be gentle :)

Nr 1. Right now we are discussing back and fourth the use of buttons in addition to touch screen. I should mention that we do not have strict accessibility requirements, it is not a product for open spaces, where all tactile feedback is important.

Google's New Design

By now, I’m sure we all must have noticed the new design that Google recently rolled out. I somehow feel that the left hand sidebar filters can be designed better.  Even the transition from more search tools to fewer search tools does not seem to be very smooth. Google has been experimenting with this sidebar for many months now. I wish if there was an option to “turn off” this new sidebar. Though I really like the way more filters are given in search categories such as Images, Books etc.  Especially the color and type search in images is absolutely fundu.


[EVENT] Cartographies of Time and Innovation in Silicon Valley

In this month's BayCHI meeting, two wildly different time periods collide. In the first half of the program Professor Daniel Rosenberg will focus on the emergence of the timeline as a common graphic tool. Rosenberg examines the origins of measured, linear representations of history, their alternatives, and their implications for historical thinking, as well as the power of graphic devices in the representation of information more generally.

Examples of Cooper-style "requirements"?

Our team has just developed an extensive set of context scenarios,
describing how our personas will interact at a high level with the web
application we intend to develop.

About Face spends barely 1.5 pages talking about extracting requirements
("the personas' needs") from scenarios. I get the basic idea, but I learn a
lot better from examples. Perhaps some of you out there have real
requirements sets you could share?

Any insight or suggestions are helpful!

Countrywise understanding of IxD

Hello everyone,

In this forum we often discuss local context of IxD and its associations
across cultures.
However from industry point of view , i would like to hear views about how
jobs related to interaction design are spread across the world.
Design labs are not present in every country and most products are designed
in the developed nations, while developing nations are just coping up with
new designs as per their complexities.

What are the best cities across the world to work as an interaction
Which are the most lucrative locations across the world to get good pay
packages as a
