So, I've heard a lot about using Fireworks for working through a
design from wireframe to prototype, even to finish visual design.. For
the people who use/love Fireworks I have a few questions:

involving Photoshop/Illustrator. Photoshop files import as bitmaps,
so it's hard to convert things into symbols etc...

- on the other side.. what if you have to work with other designers
not using Fireworks?

love to hear thoughts on it.

Chicago needs a local IxDA group... join us!

Are there others in the Chicagoland area that are interested in attending
local IxDA gatherings and events? Your interest could range from planning
events, speaking at an event, attending... or just feeling happy, knowing
there is a local group here.

If any of the above fit you, please email me off-list so I can gauge
interest. Also let me know if there are any topics of particular interest
that you haven't found a local forum for as of yet.

many thanks,

Anyone got any ideas? I tried looking amongst the mailing lists and boards
but all I really discovered was noise (Again) about the mobile interaction
tipping-point, semantic will/web and gestural interfaces.

Has anyone seen a good article or blog post prophesising about the year

UXCampNE (note, it is now North East and not NYC) following up

Just coming back from the IA Summit, I did a bit of talking up of
BarCamp (see barcamp.org) and more specifically my idea for a barCamp
styled event this year on the NE side of the the Continental US.

I got some great energy and enthusiasm from people, and wanted to make
sure that some basic information about BarCamping was out there for
folks. As noted above the real details are on the BarCamp Wiki.

Ok, here's the dealio ...

BarCamp - Think of this as open source conference.
* no financial commitments to attend
* everyone who attends presents or helps out in another way.
