Relocating - Was: Importance of Masters Degree for IxD Professionals

Hi Allison,

Thought I'd chime in here also as I am in a similar boat to Adam (with
looking at an advanced degree to further my interest in the field). I too
would have to relocate my entire family, wife and kids, in order to pursue
an advanced degree at a school worth going to.

Relocating for a job is a lot different than relocating for school. For a
job, there would be relocation assistance from the company (I've already
interviewed a number of places who were willing to add a relocation package
into the deal).

web-Second Life registration process

I'm working on a project for a client that has a presence in Second
Life, but wants their customers to register through their own site
first. This is partly so they can customize the user's SL experience,
and partly because some of the target audiences may not be familiar
with SL.

Community design?

Just curious:
In my company (an internet media company) design happens over a group
session involving writers and business people, and of course, designers.
Can good design really happen this way? Usually the designers (who are
outnumbered and softer-spoken) get over-ruled by self-skilled content
writers. I'm wondering whether to improve my shouting skills or work on my

RE: [IxDA] ATM interaction design

Bank of America ATMS have had the envelope free deposits for like a year now, sounds like the new Wells Fargo ones are pretty similar. I've actually found them quite an annoying experience. It takes practically twice as long because there is more steps...telling the machine what kind of deposit (cash or check) and verifying the amount and what kind of receipt do you want.
