Practical Reciprocation for Information

I remember a discussion about a year ago regarding reciprocation vs. reward a la "Neuro Web Design".  (Found this book very helpful, by the way.)  Our company has the ever-so-common situation of having whitepapers, brochures, etc.

Folksonomy and last.fm

Hi everyone!

I recently stumbled across some papers about taxonomy/folksonomy (mind you,
I'm still a student).
I noticed the common oppinion about folksonomies is that they are not
reliable because of the
synonymy of the language.

So today I find this image on last.fm

Survey regarding interaction design graduate education is still open.

Hi folks,

If you can spare 20min of your time, I'd really appreciate a bunch
more responses to my survey on interaction design graduate

While it is complex and long, I think it can help us all better
understand the needs of interaction design education. I plan on
making the data public later in the month of December.

Both educators and hiring managers can really benefit from this
information as interaction design matures and need for better trained
interaction designers increases.

You can find it at http://bit.ly/IxDEDU

Thank you,

Design --> Development pipeline/tools?

Hey folks -

What's your company's process/pipeline/set of tools for delivering
and communicating designs (and associated visual design assets) to
your dev team?

*[Addressed particularly to "innies" in software development orgs
though anyone's insights much appreciated]*

TO be clear: I'm NOT asking the "Visio vs Illustrator vs Fireworks
etc" conversation. I'm asking what happens *after* the design team
has determined (at least a first cut of) both how the app should
work, and how it should look.

At CHI? Why? Or why not?

Hi there,

About a year ago there was discussion on this list about the pros and
cons of CHI, with one of the themes being that CHI was too
academically oriented. I've been asked to assess the reaction of
folks to the attempt to redesign this year's CHI conference to deal
with a broader set of issues.

As of this year, the conference is providing additional tracks
oriented towards various communities with things like experience
reports, interactivity sessions, and a variety of courses integrated
into the general conference format.
