Boston Globe - responsive web redesign

The Boston Globe relaunched their website today - they are the first major website (that I'm aware of) to use responsive web design techniques. I'm pretty impressed and thought the list should check it out.

'interaction design'?

im a student in the crossroads of turning into a professional ;)
i have few unanswered questions to discuss...

Part one:
Till some time back.. I was pretty clear of the word 'interaction design'.
till I saw some works loosely replacing this word with things done by HCI
professionals and UI designers.

Now...I am little confused abt this word 'interaction design'..What does
this word 'interaction design' mean to people in the profession?

Part two:
Interaction design deals with interaction, function, usage, aesthetics,
and culture.

ADMIN: Going on Vacation ????? ( was RE: Anthony Quinn is on leave )

Let me take this moment during the winter solstice holiday season to remind
people that it is very inappropriate to have your out-of-office setting set
on, and still have your subscriptions for email lists set to receive.

Most lists have a function that allow you to suspend delivery. For sure,
ours does have such a setting and it is called mail delivery. If you go to
http://discuss.ixdg.org/ you can see our guidelines and instructions
regarding this particular setting.

Research Into Service Design Touchpoints

I am working on developing tools to assist with touchpoint innovation for the design of services. It seems strange, but the touchpoint term has become central to service design and I can't find much research on the area at all. Can anyone help me?

I am looking for academic research, the kind that is to be found at conferences, in journals and books without pictures. Anything referring to, analysing, mapping, discussing, designing or measuring touchpoints is of interest.

Consulting or Contracting Firms for IxD

IxD People:

I am looking into leaving my full time corporate gig to broaden my
design and IxD experience by working on a wider variety of projects.
Consulting seems like a good way to take a look at the bigger picture of
how other companies operate. After a year or so consulting, I hope to
settle in to a position at a good interaction design or software
development company.

Can anyone recommend consulting or contracting firms for IxD
professionals, or designers in general?

iPhone sketching tools

Hello everyone,

I’ve been experimenting with a variety of tools & templates for
creating iPhone app designs. Balsamiq is clearly the most “sketchy”
and well-suited to the concept phase. The templates for Omnigraffle,
Fireworks, and Illustrator will create higher fidelity designs.
