Master and Apprentice (was iPhone Keynote)

Take a minute and think about a mentor who changed everything for you
in the best way professionally. That one person alone for however
long that relationship lasted has helped you up when you fell and
told you all the why's to your what's and how's. Now imagine that
benefit except that relationship is extended over a couple years and
the mentor is currently considered the best in the industry.

Designing the Obvious, coming to a bookshelf near you

If you're interested in finding new sources of debate and lively
conversation, you might pick up a copy of my new book, released today,
called Designing the Obvious. It discusses guiding principles of web
application design, but does so by pointing out concrete examples and
talking about how to reproduce the qualities that make web apps great.

The term "interaction design" is mentioned exactly once, on the second to
last page of the book ... I think.

Twitter IxDA

Is there a Twitter group for IxDA.

Okay, don't laugh, I just signed up today and am not quite sure how
the whole thing works :).

Interaction design == web design

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself as this is my first posting to the list (I
have been subscribed for a few weeks now). We have been evolving our own
form of scenario- and persona-orientated design for the last year which has
been a big step-change in the way we build our software products. It's been
a fascinating process as we are strong practioners of eXtreme Programming
and our developers are very intelligent (and opinionated) C++ coders. It was
very much a case of "in-mates vs. wardens" prior and even during the
adoption of this process.

You don't learn how to draw b/c you are going to draw your web sites. You learn how to draw, you learn color theory, you learn grid systems, you learn semiotics so you can be a better designer.

Success Metrics (was: Visual aspects of interactiondesign...)

MessageHi Frank

You wrote:
Yes, most of us are after better products from a usability and visual design perspective. However, don't you think that all designs should be evaluated based on unique, pre-identified success metrics?

***Certainly, this makes sense.

For example, an interactive design submitted to Comm Arts is probably going to have success metrics skewed toward innovation in the visual design realm. In that realm, text on gifs *could* be evaluated as good design if extensibility, download time, etc.

REMINDER: [EVENT] IxDA DC Social: Monday April 28

IxDA D.C. Face-2-Face Social: April 28, Cafe Citron, Dupont Circle

IxDA D.C. is throwing a Face-2-Face Social so we can meet in person for
drinks, socializing, and planning upcoming events based on user (you—the
community) research. As such, we will be gathering both qualitative and
quantitative data on the interests of the local IxDA & IA communities. We
might even craft some personas (using pictures from later in the evening) to
bring our archetypes to life.

So — come one, come all to this April IxDA D.C. social event.

online photo galleries

hello all -

i am curious as to your thoughts on online photo galleries.

when i say photo galleries i am speaking of both:
1. the management of personal galleries (eg. kodak gallery) and
2. viewing public galleries (eg. 'photos of the day' on any online publication)

good examples? bad examples? why? one technology vs another?

thanks for any ideas you all may have!

happy holidays,

PDA UI design plug-in??

Does anyone know of any products or plug-ins (for PhotoShop say) that enable you to design for and view designs as they would appear on a PDA?
