RCA's IxD Program Changes Its Name

From Interaction Design to...Design Interactions. Huh.

"The focus of the department is shifting, and although electronics
and computing will remain at the heart of the course, we will begin
to explore how design can connect with other technologies, such as
biotechnology and nanotechnology. The course has been restructured to
reflect this shift and was validated in March 2006.

Design Interactions is a small change, but we think it is

How did you first get into interaction design?

I recently wrote a post about how I became an application designer. Originally I worked as sound designer/ editor for games in Los Angeles, and had a need for tool to help my colleagues and I on job, that I managed to design and develop.

User Acceptance Test

Heaven save me from the User Acceptance Test....

1) Is that your aim? "acceptance"? Not delight, not pleasure, not
relief, not excellence, but "acceptance"? Aim higher

2) User Acceptance Testing frequently goes hand in hand with
statements like "Marketing *is* the users. They defined the
requirements." and there are so many things wrong with that statement
I cannot even begin to go into it.

3) UAT tends to be all about the function...not the user. Does this
piece of SW do what we want it to do?

Self-configuring interfaces?

Hi All,

I was struck by the following quote in a Discover article about self-configuring modular robots ( http://www.discover.com/issues/apr-05/departments/emerging-technology/ ).

"But the big win from self-assembly is adapting to changing demands and environments-in particular, addressing situations and tasks that the robot designer doesn't even know about at the time of construction."

This brought to mind Cognitive Work Analysis and Ecological Interface Design's system-constraint-based approach

Job - seeking designer to help with data display

Hi -

I am looking for someone for the following job. I think it will be
pretty fun (I’m a jealous that I don’t have time to do all the work
myself, but will be working with the designer).

How to convince customers to participate to a user testing?

In our company, user testing with real users is not systematic and our
customers are not used to be solicited for this.

Once we agree with stakeholders to do user testing and once we are in
contact with sales people, we have to convince customers to find users who
would participate.

How to convince our customers?
