Nice Input Device - I/O Brush

http://web.media.mit.edu/%7Ekimiko/iobrush/

Scroll for videos

"Most drawing tools/pens we use today allow only a one-way flow of
ink, and we are oblivious to how the content of the tool came to
exist inside. What if we could not only have control over the outflow
of the ink, but also have influence on what goes inside? Indeed, old
fountain pens served as both tools to pick up and release the ink,
and paintbrushes still preserve that function.

Using FB, MySpace,.. for persona development

Taking the persona discussion in a different direction. I have been
thinking lately, along the lines of how we can take advantage of the
social networking sites to develop a more realistic persona.
While this is not intended to replace the one-on-one interview to
observe and gather goals, it can be an effective
tool when it comes to humanizing the users.

NN/g IxD immersion course

I got a postcard advertising Nielsen Norman Group's Interaction
Design 101 3-day immersion course and I'm wondering if anyone's been
to it and would like to post a review.

Here's the curriculum:

I'm particularly interested in the "gathering requirements" portion,
since I desperately need some clues about interviewing and research.

Thanks,

the UX hall of shame

I am 1/3 laughing, 1/3 flabbergasted, and 1/3 MAD at how poorly
www.godaddy.com <http://www.godaddy.com/> is designed

(plus I am trying to use it at 130am and I am tired anyway, which is making
me even more laughing/flabbergasted/mad)

But it brings up a fun idea:

How about a UX contest to redesign that site?

Foci of User Experience - comments please

Hi IxD folks, some of you (Dave) may have seen the latest "defining IA"
thread on the IAI list and without wanting to encourage the kind of chaos
that erupted there i'd love to reach out to get your perspective on
something I created to try and distinguish disciplines from roles within UX.

There are a few comments/discussions on it on the post so feel free to junk
that up rather than your forum!
