White, Jeff

Is the IXDA a well-kept secret? (was:InterestingArticle About Usability as a Career in New York Times.)

I'm a member of UPA as well. My perception is that UPA is actually less
focused than IxDA.

>From their site:

"The UPA supports those who promote and advance the development of
usable products, reaching out to people who act as advocates for
usability and the user experience. Members come from across the broad
family of disciplines that create the user experience. We invite you to
network in our community."

An interaction designer easily fits this mission statement.

With each stop, the tour gets stronger and tighter and our last stop in Minneapolis on June 27-28 is sure to be our best.

Advice for drive testing

Hello everyone,
I'm emailing this list asking for advice.  I have a client who makes cell phone-based navigation systems, and they want to do some drive testing -- that is, testing where I'd be in the car with the participant observing them as they navigate.  Has anyone on this list done this before?  If so, please let me pick your brain for some advice.

Committing changes to a database

Hi everyone

I am currently reviewing a desktop (i.e. NOT web) application that
involves mostly viewing and changing records in a database (via a
nice GUI front end).

In some places, changes are "committed" as soon as you enter them, a
bit like how Microsoft Access operates.
