[Sorry for any duplication]

If you find yourself in the Washington DC area on Tuesday evening,
March 14, or the Philadelphia area on Thursday evening, March 16, we
want to invite you to an informal cocktail hour. On both days,
Christine Perfetti and I are in town to present the UIE 2006 Roadshow.
Afterwards, a bunch of us will be gathering just to talk about
usability, information architecture, interaction design, user
experience, and whatever else is on our minds.

Design docs

Hello all,

I am in the process of creating a document that a UI designer/information
architect would ideally extract from and record in his first few meetings
with the clients/development team. It should also serve as a document that
the team can go back to and refer in case of doubts emerging in course of
development. At the least, the document should act as a base for the UI
designer to design the information flow and user interaction.

Can anybody help me with that? Is there such a document ready? Or some such
material in place? Any kind of help is appreciated.

A team of 12 designers will visit Shanghai from May 16th to 20th to explore the cultural side of the Shanghai, including traditional traces and its modern dynamics. The design team would like to interact with some local Chinese/Foreign designers who have thorough understanding of the following focuses:

-What life in Shanghai is like;
-Chinese stories and mythologies;
-The uniqueness of Chinese story telling;
-Translating Western Brands into China;
-Elements of Chinese Design;
-The "Psychology" of Shanghai;

So, can you speak great English and understand Chinese culture in depth?

IxDA List Feature - Title entry = Archive Search

I wanted to point out a feature that I think can really help people out and hopefully will get more people to explore the Web-interface as a better primary interface for writing and exploring the digital community.

When you "Create a Thread" from http://ixda.org/discussion and go to http://ixda.org/node/add/discussion you get a form to fill out w/ the usual fields of title, tags and body. you can even add attachments, make your text a bit richer using HTML or the WYSIWYG editor. But there is also another feature that I think might help limit a lot of the redundant traffic.

MP3 w/o a screen? -> New focus?


Ipod shuffle seems to me to be in line with Apples take on design and
product development.
They have, since the advent of OS X, put aside the "feature and
function" frenzy
that seems to still dominate the rest of the industry. I see it as a
sign of the coming
of a more mature approach to digital product development.
Another thing with Apple is their focus on the whole.
