Help some design students in the Bay Area with field research


I am teaching an interaction design class at Stanford and as part of the
class I am helping students set up sites for field research for their

We are still looking for people to interview who fall into the categories
listed below and I was wondering if any of you on this list might be
interested in volunteering yourself as a subject. Normally I don't solicit
subjects off this list for my projects but in this case, I thought I would
see if anyone was interested in volunteering to talk to students because I
think it's sort of fun to be interviewed by fledgling designers.

Unofficial IxDA Reader

I've been experimenting with a few new tools for reading the IxDA list. They've helped me get
more out of these discussions lately, so I thought I'd invite the other long-suffering digest
readers to try them out.


The main page gathers the IxDA discussion archives (from dreamhost.com) into a blog-like
interface. You'll see the entire month's posts in a sidebar organized by conversation (ala
Gmail or Outlook) as well as the comments in a thread all stitched back together onto one

New IxDA Face-To-Face in Waterloo, Ontario

Hey folks, I'm happy to announce the formation of a new F2F in Waterloo,
Ontario, the heart of Canada's "technology triangle". Two months ago, I
joined forces with Navid Sadikali, a UX designer here in town at Agfa, to
host a couple events to test the waters and see who we could entice to show
up. Well, response was terrific. Just over 40 people have participated,
enough to convince us to make a real go of this starting next September.

In the meantime, we're holding one more event before summer hits.

Recommendations for firm specialized in customersupport solutions

While I was with GSI Commerce we evaluated a company for help desk
applications called InQuira. Probably the best capabilities demo I've
ever seen, really impressive. They integrate with call center ops a lot
too. Not sure if it's a fit, but they are definitely worth looking

"Narcissism of small difference"

So what's the idea behind ''Massive Change'' [1]?

Bruce Mau: There's a design revolution coming out of North America. It dares
to imagine the welfare of the entire human race.

You mean, like the iPod?

Bruce Mau: No. It's not interesting to me. One of the most important things
we did was take the visual out of design.


Let's hear it from the Canadians, anyone seen it yet? Posturing?
