New Music Interface…

Dunno how many people here know elektroplankton.com for the
NintendoDS™ but the same guy-Toshio Iwai-created a new musical
instrument for Yamaha.

Looks pretty interesting.
I really love the direction of going really digital. Photography is
still so damm old school. I mean I use a digital SLR as well but
besides the sensor there is nothing digital in there.

Maintaining data concurrency in an "Ajax" environment

Hello,
I'm working on a thin client application which will be used by
multiple users concurrently and I'm having problems wrapping my head
around how we'll address overwriting of data that's being edited by
another user. Since this application will be using a lot of Ajax-type
interactions it will allow users to change individual attributes of
objects. In this case, the objects are financial data, so making sure
the user knows what the most up-to-date value (OR correct value --
these are two distinct options) is is of very high importance.

LifeRay Enterprise Portal UX Flexibility?

Anyone have any experience working with LifeRay for an enterprise portal solution--particularly interested in the UX impact point of view? I've been tasked with devising an enterprise portal solution for a media company and need to assess the pros/cons of going with an out-of-the-box versus custom solution.

Other recommendations for Portal designs always welcome. 

Thanks!

Easy to read = Difficult to Remember

I found this blurb on Engaget very interesting:

"...[a Princeton study] has shown that readers retain information more reliably when they are challenged with so-called "disfluent" fonts..."

On the topic of Recruiters

Ok, I just received the 2nd recruitment email for exactly the same job
from exactly the same recruitment agency.

I'm all for getting IxDAers jobs (who wouldn't be), but I'm not
convinced that recruiters should be able to post to the list.

Also, there is a difference between a company posting a opening
themselves (hopefully they're participating in the community
beforehand) and a recruiter posting a "mystery" job for someone else.

I feel that we should make a reasonable effort to keep a discussion
list for discussions....and filter out things that aren't.

So I wonder...
