Re: [IxDA] Master of Arts OR Master of Science

I could not agree with you more re do what you want, do what you are good at plus learn to market yourself. No one else can or will do it with the same passion.

IEEE 2014 Conference on Norbert Wiener in the 21st Century, Boston

Norbert Wiener made contributions across several disciplines during his lifetime. Many of these were immediately relevant, and influenced theories and production during his day. Others were long-term, and only in recent years has it been possible to test their relevance. Separately, Wiener predicted the social impact of robotic, cybernetic and other technologies on the future of society, and after several decades his writing retain their relevance.

RE: [IxDA] ATM interaction design

Bank of America ATMS have had the envelope free deposits for like a year now, sounds like the new Wells Fargo ones are pretty similar. I've actually found them quite an annoying experience. It takes practically twice as long because there is more steps...telling the machine what kind of deposit (cash or check) and verifying the amount and what kind of receipt do you want.

[Possible Spam] RE: Re: "Intuitive" designs can be cumbersome

Not to sidetrack this interesting conversation, but are any of you
familiar with the system described at www.muse.com? The description is
pretty vague I think, but they seem to be describing an adaptive
(andragogical I'd call it. Does this term apply?) UI for a collaborative
music app of some kind. I guess they've shown it off in some San
Francisco clubs. Just wondering if anyone's seen it in action.

We'll cover:
different types of research to consider
