Qualitative Recruitment

I've been tasked with finding a vendor to conduct recruitment on behalf of a client for an un-moderated, online card sort. Vendor and card sort participants can be from anywhere in the country. Any suggestions or recommendations as to which firm(s) to contact? Thanks in advance!

UCD, UX and Usability Courses in London (3 for 2)

(Apologies if you receive more than one of these.)

Thanks to everyone who completed our courses survey questionnaire. Oliver Pink at SAP was the lucky winner of the Amazon voucher.

Based on the feedback from the survey, we've set up a regular programme of UCD, UX, usability and related soft skills courses in London. We may extend this to other locations if demand dictates, but we are always willing to run courses in-house or in specific locations if requested.

First off, is that really that low? I don't know my exchange rates off-hand
but the pound at it's lowest is 1.5 dollars to the pound which would put
that at some $70k, no? Considering that teaching usually has "supplemental"
income at this level, I'm not so sure that I think that is so bad.

Also, I bet in the UK the bennies are a heck of a lot better than they are
in the states. Just the # of bank holidays alone.

Curriculum changes for Interaction Design program

Hello everyone, I am a graduate student Interaction Design at the
Utrecht School for the Arts in The Netherlands. Today I've been asked to
attend a seminar on the way the pre-graduate curriculum for Interaction
Design should evolve in the coming years. Currently the curriculum is
mainly focused on a practical form of Interaction Design and design of
multimedia in particular. The last years the theoretical approach has
been scaled down dramatically, for example a course into Cognitive
Psychology has been pulled from the curriculum.

Mind controller?

A company called Emotiv has a mind controller device. Think something and
that something becomes correlated to an action.
it isn't as easy as say the movie "Firefox" ("think in Russian!"), but it is
a start of calibrating brain waves to then say whenever this pattern occurs
do "this" action.

I doubt it is ready for firing missiles, yet.
