Recruiters and Other Employment Posters

When the new site launches next week, a key enhancement is the
addition of a job board.

This board allows you to post details of your job offering within a
clear, directed form. You will be able to define the job title,
details, full- or part-time or contract, and rich-text details. You
can also target specific IxDA local groups where you want to post the
job (as well as it being available in the full job board).

So make sure you come back to the site early next week and post your
jobs!

"Results-Oriented" GUI?

http://www.useit.com/alertbox/wysiwyg.html

So Nielsen is touting the new MS Office 12 UI changes. In the above article
he describes the changes to the Office UI citing it as a paradigm shift. He
also says something even more interesting to me:

" If anybody else introduced a new user interface paradigm, it would
probably remain a curiosity for years, but Microsoft Office has a special
status as the world's most-used interaction design.

Layar app - What do you all think this portends for IxD?

Hey all -

Saw a very brief demo of a *reality* browser on TV last week via Brink on the Science Channel (which btw also had an excellent demo by Bill Buxton & the MS Office Labs 2019 vision--posted elsewhere on this forum).

Basically it seems to be mobile browser (served as an app) which in real time mashes-up digital content (information) and physical context---it's called Layar and seems to be live in the Netherlands.

Very, very cool stuff was curious to know if there were any thoughts or if anyone has had first hand experience with something like this.

When to go backwards

I've
been an IA on the web for more than10 years. Back in the old days I was
considered a thought leader. We were making it up as we went along. We
were trailblazers. Well, time has passed and my ways are now old
school. I admit I haven't been developing at the same pace as the
industry has. I woke up recently and decided I have a lot to learn and
that I need to invest in my long term career development by both
brushing up on the fundamentals and keeping up with what's new. I
believe I am over-employed at the moment and I'm starting to struggle.
I think it's time to make a change.

Fwd: JOB: RCA Head of Interaction Design Post(RoyalCollege of Art; London)

> > Salary: £46,000 pa

First off, is that really that low? I don't know my exchange rates off-hand
but the pound at it's lowest is 1.5 dollars to the pound which would put
that at some $70k, no? Considering that teaching usually has "supplemental"
income at this level, I'm not so sure that I think that is so bad.

Also, I bet in the UK the bennies are a heck of a lot better than they are
in the states. Just the # of bank holidays alone.

RE: [IxDA] Right-hand navigation

I wrote an article on this a while back - it's not a definitive answer but addresses the suggestion that right-hand navigation might be more efficient.

However, I have to say that 'people usually figure things out' is not good evidence in favour.
