NYC IxDA Event: Adam Greenfield Discusses Ubiquitous Computing March 9 @ 6:30 pm

NYC IxDA IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE
Adam Greenfield Discusses Ubiquitous Computing

From smart buildings that subtly adapt to the changing flow of
visitors, to gesture-based interfaces like the ones seen in Minority
Report, computing no longer looks much like it used to. Increasingly
invisible but present everywhere in our lives, computing has moved
off the desktop and out into everyday life–affecting almost every one
of us.

Conference Hotel?

Hello,

I'm looking for a hotel for the IxDA 13 conference and I could use some recommendations.  Anyone know where the conference will be held and where I should stay? I need to book the hotel this week.

Thanks!

Product Standard Guidelines

Hi there.
Does anyone know of a good resource which outlines basic product
standards for a website. (it's a very data heavy site)

I imagine it's easier to find more quantifiable items such as load
times and working across browsers, but I'd love to find something
that sets a minimum bar for clarity in the UI design.

We're looking for something which will help the engineering and QA
teams evaluate if the site is adequate from a IxD perspective.

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Tom

Additional Reception Ticket on SIGCHI

Hello all IXDers!

Can anybody tell me what rights give the "Additional Reception Ticket" which
I can buy with my CHI-2008 registration procedure? What is the purpose of
this ticket?
I cannot find any words about this one on the official site (

Creating Interactive PDFs - Need help

I've written a usability report that I converted from Word to a PDF (based on limited tools I have to work with), but wanted to add some interactive elements in it -- namely the ability (1) to show larger images and (2) play embedded videos from a link.  Unfortunately, despite the limited tutorials I've found and Adobe's mediocre help content, I haven't been able to figure out how to do it, and was hoping someone else has done something like this.

Dashboard for non-trending data?

I've been tasked with designing an interface for an application that reports on SQL and Sharepoint data. I'd like the default home page of the application to present some sort of summary information, and I thought a dashboard would not only jazz things up a bit (I've also been asked to try to make reporting 'sexy' - not an easy feat!), but also provide an entry point for newer users.

However, dashboards tend to lend themselves to trend-type data, or reports that generate simple numerical results such as 'number of databases: 24'.

I am very much against design competitions and spec work for our
industry.
