...and don't forget to laugh

While in pursuit of the simple, the
clear, the intuitive, the new, I'd like to give whimsy, surprise, and um, the warm embrace of stupidity, their due.

No matter the domain, – virtual or tangible, high tech or high touch,
interfaces or environments, – innovative thinking is accompanied by the opportunity to twist toward one of four emotional
outcomes: the aha! (scientific knowing),
the ah! (aesthetic experience), the ha ha! (humorous relief) and the duh? (what
I’ll call “blessed stupidity”).

Hired a recent undergrad? If so, which school/program?

I'm trying to figure out which schools are churning out good candidates to fill junior IxD positions, and what these schools are calling the degree undergraduates receive (our HR department needs a better understanding). Schools in Southern California would be of particular interest since that's where we're located.

That said, if anyone steers clear of hiring recent undergrads (favoring instead graduate students or only those with a minimum level of real-world experience---regardless of education), I'd love to hear your thoughts.

what are the effects of your organizational culture on you ?


I previously posted about that : we're investigating the effects of
culture on stress, burnout, etc. and wish to thank everyone who
already filled the
online survey.

The deadline for completing the survey is nearing, so thanks for filling it :

We're still looking for people to answer, whatever the job or field, specially
for those working in big companies and we need more women to answer.

interface standards - the CE space
