Sequential vs. "free flowing" interaction

I'm new to this field so my language may not be quite up to par with
conventions, but hopefully this makes some sense and some of you may have
some advice for me.

I'm working on a school project with the task of designing an interface for
a digital frame where the user can directly insert a memory card into the
frame, and then complete all functions with a touch-screen interface.

Many thanks.

A New Approach to Interaction Design

Hello IxDA:

This message is to encourage you to preview and purchase a book which
describes a new perspective on IxD. While IxD appears in most
universities as either an adjunct of HCI or as a Design skill in the
department of Mulitmedia/Art, this treatise argues IxD as a scientific
pursuit which sees no boundaries to the topical application of its
form, encompassing all of science.


"Interactivity is not merely the study of computational interfaces,
but observation and application of universal behavior with respect to
all systems, sciences and processes.

Is user research a band-aid for "the listeningdeficit"?


I developed a mural process to help companies draw knowledge about customers
out of different parts of the organization and make it visible to all and
available to design teams.

As promised B&A article on "Foundations of Interaction Design"

Well it is finally published. I think 2 years ago I suggested this
idea to the B&A web site and they got back to me like 6 months later
and then it took me forever to actually write it. Well, here it is:

Game patterns in mundane applications

I'm a big fan of pattern libraries. In particular, I really enjoy taking
patterns that appear primarily in gaming environments and applying them
through my work (web application development). Things such as:

- Keeping Score

- Customization/Personalization

- Progress Indication

- Item Collection

- Random Discovery

Does anyone out there have any thoughts or interesting stories/examples
of applying game theory to traditionally more "mundane" contexts?

UXCampNE (note, it is now North East and not NYC) following up

Just coming back from the IA Summit, I did a bit of talking up of
BarCamp (see barcamp.org) and more specifically my idea for a barCamp
styled event this year on the NE side of the the Continental US.

I got some great energy and enthusiasm from people, and wanted to make
sure that some basic information about BarCamping was out there for
folks. As noted above the real details are on the BarCamp Wiki.

Ok, here's the dealio ...

BarCamp - Think of this as open source conference.
* no financial commitments to attend
* everyone who attends presents or helps out in another way.
