How to find people who use SmartGridCity in Boulder, CO

We are doing a project related to energy use and are looking for people who
live in Boulder, CO and are part of the Smart Grid City energy program
there. Does anyone have any ideas or tips on how to find people in this
pilot program?

We are on a limited budget and have posted on Craigslist in Boulder and have
asked all our friends, changed our status on various social networks to look
for people.

Design professional getting an MBA?

Hi all,

Since getting out of college a couple years ago, I have been employed as
an interaction designer at a software company. I really love the work,
it's what I want to be doing for years to come, however I have noticed
(as many people have discussed on this board numerous times) a
disconnect between the business, development and design. Lately, I have
been thinking about applying to business school, hopefully to gain
perspective and help address this gap between all parties.

I would like to get any of your opinions on whether this move would be
successful or not.

optimized keyboards(lay-outs) target users?


there has been a discussion here on who might be target user of redesigned
optimized keyboards (lay-outs) here: professional typist or the one who is
about to get familiar with typing with keyboards?! that is if I'm optimizing
a keyboard in user centred design process, which of those two should be the
one who gets involved in UCD iterative process and gathering feedbacks. One
side says: if a professional typist could type with some optimized lay-out
well, then the one with less knowledge of computer should enter text well
too; the other side says vice versa.

Interactive design business prospects?

Hi all!

I am new to this conference, so I can write something, that you are
not interested. In that case simply say me, that it is not a proper
theme for this conference.

So, going for a theme of this discussion. I am from Ukraine and own
my graphics design company, called "JAR Studio"
(www.design.jarstudio.com.ua, but sorry - only in russian), we are
specialized on Flash interactive graphics and informational design.

And i want to say you, that here, in Ukraine, Interactive Design
can't be viewed as separate business.This is connected with current
economic and politic situation.
