Thanks to everyone who submitted work to this year's Interaction Awards, and all who helped us spread the word over the past several weeks. This year's variety of projects from around the globe will really make our jury's job difficult!

New encyclopedia on Interactive Design, Usability and User Experience

Dear friends of interaction-design.org,

We are proud to introduce a new type of top-quality and free encyclopedia dealing with Interactive Design, Usability, and User Experience. It has taken the opposite approach of Wikipedia and crowd-sourcing: All entries are written by leading figures who either invented or contributed significantly to each topic.

The new encyclopedia features video interviews which we flew around the world and shot at different universities.

Apprenticeship conversation at IxD11 ... Your stories

During Interaction 11 in Boulder a very small group of us got together to talk about apprenticeships as an overall concept. Elena Moon, Jason Mesut and myself got together over lunch and discussed our very different point of views and we decided that it would be great to expand the conversation amongst our peers here in the community.

Looking for an older quote from Gillian Crampton-Smith

I came across this quote in 1998 or so, from Gillian Crampton-Smith, then of RCA. I used it in a magazine, Turn Signals, that I was working on at the time, but don't have that particular issue any longer, and I can't remember the quote.

It had something to do with creativity in design (I think) and being prompted by "sand in the emollient flow" - I most definitely remember the use of "emollient."

My Google-fu has totally failed me; I've scanned my hard drive, etc. I'm going to reach out to IUAV but my hopes are low.

[Event] Chicago IxDA - Encouraging sustainability through online community - April 15th

On Wednesday, April 15th, we'll have our next Chicago IxDA meeting a review
of Manifest Digital's entry in the PhizzPop design challenge held at SXSW:
to design a digital experience that encourages a community to adopt a
sustainable lifestyle. We'll also be discussing the process in generating
the solution, and facilitating a discussion around engaging
community-focused sustainability.

What's PhizzPop?
It's a multi-company, multi-city design challenge hosted by Microsoft. Teams
in 5 cities compete, with the winners from each city meeting in Austin for a
final challenge at SXSW.
