Re: [IxDA] RE: [IxDA] ATM interaction design

First off I just wanted to mention it's nice to have the excuse to talk about ATMs in terms of usability. Like the microwave discussion, this sort of thing makes me really happy I joined this listserv.

Virtual Smart Agents increase conversions?

This came up this morning while chatting with a content manager friend
of mine. She's installing one of those "virtual smart agent"
things on her customer's web site.

It's one of those little in-page chat windows that pops up and asks
if you'd like to talk to an agent and get help.

She says they "increase conversions 10%".

I think they're one of the more annoying, and misused bits of fluff
to appear in the past few years.

Reviewing nominations for the 2010-2012 IxDA Board of Directors

I'm happy to let the community know that 20 people (which includes 2 current
board members) have put their names forth for consideration for the IxDA
Board of Directors.

IxDA relies on the leadership that emerges from the community, so we are
very thankful for this show of support.

Next steps:

We plan on notifying the nominees of the Board's decision no later than
December 18th, 2009. After acceptance of the position, we will then
announce the 2010-2012 Board to the community.

Perhaps this statement encapsulates our disagreement. Just because I
believe that an Interaction Designer can be of value in most cases of
human interaction, doesn't mean that I think I am king of that
