IxDA SF Presents Interaction09 Redux - Saturday, March 14, 2009

IxDA SF presents Interaction09 Redux - Saturday, March 14th

Earlier this month, 460 interaction designers converged in Vancouver to
discuss, debate, and share a spectrum of topics that are important to
our community
of practice. The Interaction09 conference featured three days of tactical
workshops, smart sessions filled with practical advice, and a fantastic
collection of inspirational keynotes.

As you might expect, many of the contributors to the event came from our own
Bay Area backyard.

If there's anything more annoying than a machine that won't do what you want, it's a machine that won't do what you want and has been programmed to behave as though it likes you.

telecommuting and work/life balance

All:   So as a full time user experience designer and a mother of a toddler, I find that very few companies allow designers to work from home a couple of days a week, or allow flexibility in schedules. I am lucky because I have a great boss and company that allows that - I live in the Bay area and find that my commute RT is about 56 miles each day.

Slider orientation best practice


Following on from the interesting pagination thread yesterday, I was
wondering about best practice in using sliders (e.g. like the jQuery
UI slider mentioned http://docs.jquery.com/UI/Slider), particularly in
relation to orientation.

For a project I'm working on I'm considering using one to scroll
through a list of messages (e.g. tweets), sorted by time. The tweets
will display vertically, with the latest at the top.

'interaction design'?

im a student in the crossroads of turning into a professional ;)
i have few unanswered questions to discuss...

Part one:
Till some time back.. I was pretty clear of the word 'interaction design'.
till I saw some works loosely replacing this word with things done by HCI
professionals and UI designers.

Now...I am little confused abt this word 'interaction design'..What does
this word 'interaction design' mean to people in the profession?

Part two:
Interaction design deals with interaction, function, usage, aesthetics,
and culture.

Preserving Filter Selections

Hello everyone,

I do not have the ability to do any usability testing for this, but I wanted to know if there was a best practice for this scenario:

The user lands and on media asset viewer (default view w/another view option) with options to filter the media asset viewer by category and media type. After making a few filter selections, the user then flips the media asset viewer to another view - would most users expect that their filter selections from the previous view to be preserved?

Your opinions are very welcomed.
