IxDA NYC Design Studio Event Recap

Hi IxDers,

This is a delayed recap. On October 25th we hosted a new kind of event in

something similar in your area.

A short recap of the event:
A group of 30 designers came together one night and worked together for 3
hours in a studio setting.

IxDa-er: 1st interview with Marketing..

Hi everybody,

I am now defining my function as an Interaction Designer of a medium sized (300+ employees) company. I have now my first conversation with Marketing. I think I want to hear how they are confronted with the need for an improved presentation and usability. I am curious to hear how the house style is developped to what it is now, what the design rationale is behind the current housestyle and where they think all products should go to (how much integration between products, how users should experience a software-suite etc).

How should we design for people who do not read easily?

Many people do not read easily. This might be because of an impairment
or disability, poor access to literacy or because English is not their
first language.

How to evaluate long-term engagement

Does anyone know of any methodologies or case studies for evaluating (or
predicting) long-term engagement? Any specific application to social
networking sites would be great, but analogous examples from video
games, enterprise software, or whatever else are welcome.

problem. Some of those answers are better than others, and some of those
answers are just...well, guesses.
