Ockler, Sarah

Recommend IxD or usability seminars/conferences (USA)

Hello all -

I just got approval to participate in an offsite seminar or two this
year. Do you have any recommendations for conferences or seminars
focused on general IxD, IA or usability? By general, I mean not overly
technical or graphic design-focused. I'm a content producer and have
recently been submerged in peripheral IA and usability roles and would
like to learn more. Any advice is appreciated. US only, please.

Thanks in advance!

IxDA SF Presents When UX Research is Evil

*When UX Research is Evil*
Usually when you design and conduct a user research study, you're focused on
keeping the methods sound, recruiting good users, and asking the right
questions, which is already a tall order. Unfortunately, no matter how well
you conduct your studies, your methods have little to do with how the
research ultimately gets used.

IxD deliverable and One-person show Was: buy-in, consensus, etc.

as long as the prototype is fully formed.

Shifting gears> So what are the deliverables of the interaction designers
'after' the design is approved (by whatever process). The architect
delivers the plans. The product designer delivers the third angle
projected drawings along with separation lines (perhaps ProE models is
more like it these days), colour shades and assembly instructions. What
does an IxD deliver?

Is there an interactive newspaper

Looking at the different designs for newspapers and the way different
cultures interact with the different formats, I arrived at a question
which i wanted to pose for discussion.

What is an interactive newspaper, is there an example of an
interactive newspaper?

How can we as designers rethink of new ways to allow the users to
gather their own news into a platform?

Taking into consideration the cultural and social aspect of the
newspaper how can we devise a universal newspaper which can afford
different language while still retaining the pictorial and visual

Patriarchs of the Design Family (was: New Uber DesignOrg)

MessageDo I defend IDSA or Icograda? Not necessarily, but I support every honest attempt to strengthen the voice of design.

Would I want to have someone else speak for me? Yes, if they among other things constitute a powerful (lobbying) force to develop, educate about and promote the importance of design to relevant stakeholders. No, if they presume to speak for the discipline I adhere to, interaction design, without having the required competence to do so, and going counter to my interests.
