idea for site

I was thinking a good addition to the ixda site would be a listing of
resources for doing user research, specific to the various
representative cities. Focus groups, usability testing facilities,
3rd party moderators, etc. might even be able to generate some
revenue from these...

just a thought.

Stupid Pop-Up Windows you can't bypass unless...

Thanks. I'll never return again.

Please if you have ever done this, stop it.
It does not work! It just pisses people off! If you insist on doing it atlease give me a way to close or skip it.
I have seen similar insane tactics on some of those Daily Deals website.

Case in point:

Joining an association: ASIS&T or STC?

I'm interested in joining a professional association and I've narrowed
it down to ASIS&T or STC (can only do one this year). ASIS&T looks
great, but I'm wondering if it has more of a technical focus than what
I'm currently 'qualified' for (don't want to sign up for something I
can't understand). Then, maybe it would help me narrow my focus and grow
my knowledge base.

STC also looks interesting and seems a little more broad. I'm not sure
which is best.

ADMIN: Our list arhives are public - and have been from day 1

Our IxD discussion list archives are public.

Someone recently found a message they posted on a Google search results list
and was surprised to do so. Yes, the list archives are publicly available.
We feel that this is a service to the design community, so that subscription
is not required in order to reap the benefits of the list.

This may mean that some people might want to consider what information they
put into their messages. Please see my signature below as an example.
