Creating a proposal for field research

Hey there,

I've been tasked with the job of writing a proposal to my supes to convince
the powers that be that field research will give real results and show true
value to all involved stake holders. I'd love to gain some insights from
others who had to do the selling of this great idea to people who just don't
get it at all.

Background: I work for a very business driven company.

Calendars integration online

Hello Folks,

have a question for you...

I am actually developing an on line working platform, and a few of the potential users I surveyed has asked for an on line calendar that could interact and integrate local calendars such as that from Outlook, Thunderbird and so on.

I'm pretty sure something that works like this already exists, but we seem like we cannot find any similar application around the web...

Anyone has any suggestion??

Thank you all,

IxD definition WAS Interaction Design forESL Textbooks?

[I love it how Andrew is now defining IxD, after he did a great job of defining the IA CoP at the IA Summit!]

Just as IxD is a hybrid of other, earlier practices, so will IxD be seen as a pre-cursor to the User Experience practice.
We all stand on the shoulders of giants.

Decidedly true, although I would posit that the PhD degrees in both
fields are (and probably should be) focused on research, on advancing
the knowledge base of both fields.
