Anyone know anyone at the AIGA?

Because their site is busted:

Every single link from the front page is 404.
And their 404 page says copyright 2007.

Call for Entries: CHI2009 Student Design Competition


I want to invite you and students you mentor to contribute to the CHI2009
Student Design Competition; the competition, in its sixth year, is an
international venue for showcasing undergraduate and graduate design work.
CHI in 2009 will be held in Boston, MA.

The design problem this year focuses on the idea of local resource
consumption; the problem given to students is:

Design an object, interface, system, or service intended to support the idea
of utilizing or consuming local resources rather than global resources, in a
sustainable and environmentally efficient manner.

Messaging Patterns

Hey all,

I'm attempting to determine industry standards for website communication but am having a hard time finding any formal documentation.

What constitutes a "warning" and an "alert"? Is a warning a subset of an alert? How about a reminder, is it a type of warning?

"The tiny things matter" - a UX story

We all have these stories, I suspect. A friend wrote this up and I'm
passing it along, with his permission, anonymized.

He was buying a new car - fairly high end, significant purchase:

"The choice came down to [Car A], which is an updated version of my
old car, or the [Car B]. I love love loved the feel of spaciousness in
[Car B], I could have used the cargo space, and the user interface
with the nav/audio screen is stunning.

Focus o f List

Hey there peeps,

I had a couple of suggestions from people to try and keep this list focused
on IxD and not let the content go off in all directions. This does not
happen often here b/c of self selection mainly but every so often a topic
like "should I use this color or that color" comes up. While this may have
"DESIGN" relevance it is rare that it has IxD relevance, so I'm putting my
moderator goggles on and will try to guide people in the right direction and
interrupt threads from time to time that just seem like they are too

NN/g IxD immersion course

I got a postcard advertising Nielsen Norman Group's Interaction
Design 101 3-day immersion course and I'm wondering if anyone's been
to it and would like to post a review.

Here's the curriculum:


I'm particularly interested in the "gathering requirements" portion,
since I desperately need some clues about interviewing and research.

Call for participation; CHI workshop on design for reading

(apologies if you receive more than one copy of this message)

I would like to ask you to consider participating in the "Design to read"
workshop at CHI 2010.

We are want to bring together practitioners and researchers who work with
audiences who do not read easily, and also people who themselves have
encountered difficulties with reading.

We aim to find out more about each others' work, and also to tackle the
question of whether one approach to design can work for all of our audiences
- or do we need to design differently for different groups?
