You can now make online donations to IxDA via PayPal (including major credit cards)

It took us a little bit longer than we wanted to, to make our online
donation process official, but now it is.

Workflow software

On the back of our recent postings on use-cases, as an accompaniment to
prototypes, I wondered if anyone uses visual workflow software to support
the communication of highly complex prototypes. Does anything out there
exist in this space? Perhaps it is not possible to produce such a piece of
software as it generalises a variable design opportunity?

Thoughts? Ideas?

Site Review: BibleExperience.com

Hey everyone!

I recently worked on a site with for a client,
http://www.bibleexperience.com. We spent some time going back and forth. I¹d
built a much larger site, but we ended up in this mini-site experience,
which will be reworked into a larger experience over the summer, featuring
all 400 celebrities. The Bible Experience is a product of Zondervan, a bible
manufacturer. It is 400 African American celebrities speaking the Bible over
76 CDs.

where and how to call an about us link

We're planning a corporate website. We did a card sort test
and people find and "about us" section

We wonder a couple of things

1. Where to place it. We think that´s logical on the left
of the logo

Company´s logo | About us | Corporate Products | Other customers |

Maybe it´s not related to products and logical taxonomy is not with left to
We did a benchmark study. A lot of companies: Amazon, Yahoo! ...don´t use
an about us section at all

2. The second question is if a good title.

Hi All,

I have a question for all you IxD experts that could really help me. I have just qualified from a degree in HCI, and am aiming to start a job in Interaction Design. I have a good grounding in general usability, but would like to find out more about good, practical IxD that would help me prepare for a career in this field. I know a book alone isn't enough, and experience is the most vital thing, but everyone has to start somewhere.

Are there any good books people can recommend?

Is there an IxD bible?
Is there a good book that describes practical methodologies?

Long / Large forms


I'm looking for examples of very long forms, or forms for gathering
lots of data. Forms that have multiple questions (20+) for gathering
lots of long answers (150 words +).

I'm thinking these would be like Resume Builders, Grant
Applications, Business Plans...

Anyone seen or worked on something like this?
