IxD groups in RTP, NC?


I just moved to Durham, NC to design mobile interfaces and am wondering if if there are any IxD/usability people in RTP. Do you know of any active usability groups that get together in the area? Or perhaps people would just be interested in having a social and meeting other people?

If you are interested, send me an email.

I recently moved to Durham from Oakland CA. I have 7 years plus experience working as an interaction designer for Excite at Home, Actuate, among others.

[WSG] Design of forms on web vs paper

I've been involved in a few debates about this question lately and
would like to write an article summarising the different positions.
It would be great if you could spend a few minutes emailing me or
posting your personal position on the following query:

"As a matter of best practice, should forms on the web be designed to
look like their paper equivalents? Why/why not?"

I recognise that this is a fairly "open" question but there are lots
of different ways that one could come at this issue and I'm keen to
hear about them all!

Physical vs. Digital Buttons

Interesting post about digital vs. mechanical buttons:

"Sometime about 2-3 years ago, the saturated consumer electronics
industry, hungry for new but matured technology, has been exploring
what we designers call “static” buttons. These “static” buttons are
essentially non-mechanical (ie non-moving) and use electronic
circuitry as a means to detect triggering contact.


I am starting to feel such non-mechanical buttons actually reduce the
user experience rather than enhance it.

intensives/cooper u

hey all,

there have been a few education related threads lately, and it got me
thinking about what i could do to sort of "brush up" ... going back to
school full time isn't really in the cards for me, and the part
time/single courses offered near home aren't really interesting.

so, i was wondering if anybody here has done any of the Cooper U four
day programmes. are they generally worth while? are there other
intensive programmes like that for IxD?
