domain really are.

Does anyone have an experience in which the worked with the Market

research industry related products are applied in UX domain?

Best Regards

Seeking speakers [designers, urban planners, architects] who are working in community design...

During the Interaction 12 Local Leaders workshop in Dublin we are going to explore how we can design richer interaction design communities in our localities. It is the aim of many local groups to be more than event planning organizations. We hope to foster community and dialogue outside of events and serve as hubs for knowledge around our discipline. As such, we are looking for urban planners, Design Council members or other designers applying design thinking and methodologies in their communities to speak to the group about their approach to communitybuilding.

*+* I do apologize in advance if my post is considered irrelevant a bit, I
mean if it is Academic question not some Scientific one.

in Design. My tendencies in design are towards Products, but I do like
studying how technology is merged with products and how Interactive Design
is helpful in this way. I got some questions:

Design Council description of ID (Round II)

Thanks to Danny Bluestone for pointing it out, but the link didn't work,
probably as a result of the link auto wrapping in a plain text email. Now
sent as an HTML email instead which will hopefully make this email more

If you only receive plain text and the link does wrap, then copy the first
line of the link and paste it into the address bar of your browser, then
copy the second line of the link and paste it into the address bar,
appending the second to the end of the first to make one long URL.

Any interest in a Collaboration & Distributed Design Team topic for Interaction10?

My associate and I are planning to submit a proposal on ‘Collaboration
& Distributed Design Teams’ for the Interaction10 conference in
Savannah. We think we have enough material for a Presentation-style
of session, but we wonder if there is sufficient interest in a Group
Discussion-style session instead.

Do you work in a geographically dispersed design organization? Is
part of your team composed of external contractors? Are you
separated by more than just time zones and telephones? How do
language, culture, and technology affect our ability to collaborate?

Ethics of using MS icons

Perhaps this is too off-topic, but let's see.

We all know that the icons for open (folder), save (diskette), and print are widely duplicated from either MS Office or Windows, in innumerable systems. Files such as C:\WINDOWS\system32\SHELL32.dll show typical Windows icons when you set the properties of a file and click Change Icon.

IPod ecosystem (NYTimes) - changes in all aspects of design

(registration/login required)

This NY Times article highlights the growing speed at which design and
implementation needs to occur in all aspects of product development,
especially when said product development is completely dependent on other
people's work.

The story is about iPod, but it could be about anything where someone is
taking advantage of someone else's success.

I think the mash-up phenomena needs to be cautious
