DARPA interaction opportunity


I thought I would pass along this RFP from DARPA for two reasons:

1) to invite discussion about what an interface for the proposed system
might look like and how it might behave;
2) hopefully help one of y'all get rich;

With this small ado, here's some introductory text:

The decision aids will assist the commander and staff in generating,

People who really OUGHT to have done user testing

"A LOTTERY scratchcard has been withdrawn from sale by Camelot -
because players couldn't understand it."

It's mostly a story about confusing math and such, and I think the
writer is making the point that people don't get negative numbers.
But I can't help thinking "if they'd just run a few sample games with
random volunteers they'd've found that problem..."

Experimental Interaction Design summer course in Tallinn

Hi all,

I've just found this summer course


It looks interesting, and...so cheap! Only 300 euros for 2 weeks. Does anyone of you know this course, or Tallinn University?

I would like to read some review before applying, as I'm considering - in alternative - the Central St Martins London summer courses (more expensive, but I attended last year and I know it worth the money)

thank you!

Wireframes: Illustrator/Indesign question&#8230;

Hi Meikel,

I'm not sure the InDesign+Illustrator is the best choice for your
wireframe documentation.

If you're using a PC, you should take a look at Axure -
http://www.axure.com. I have some friends who have been using it and
they seem very happy with it. I've never used it, as I haven't done
wireframes for a long time, and also because there is still no Mac
version of this software...so, I've never even tried it...But I have
close friends using it and loving it, many of them with an
"Illustrator background".

Humor for IA and Usability People

For a brief break during the workday, I once posted some humor and satire about the field that was well received. Then the site ended and for awhile the humorous stuff was unavailable. I apologize for this outage. In response to ongoing requests by visitors, the humor has been restored and moved to http://www.filippsapienza.com/blog1/2010/02/02/humorous-writing/
