Human-Poultry Interaction

"Researchers have developed a cybernetic system to allow physical
interaction over the internet. The system allows touching and feeling
of animals or other humans in real time, but it's first being tried
out on -- chickens."

"We understand the perceived eccentricity of developing a system for
humans to interact with poultry remotely, but this work has a much
wider significance."

Goal-Directed Design and Legacy Systems

I'm interested in experiences where IxDers have employed GDD on an upgrade
of a large enterprise legacy system, where the implementation model
necessarily (because of the complexity of infrastructure and mammoth costs
to change it) dictates system rules to the user and therefore counters some
of their potential goals.

I understand that there needs to be compromise. I guess it's always going to
be a damage limitations exercise? Comment appreciated.

Social Network Open Source Platform - Recommendations?

I am looking for a Social Networking Platform (LAMP preferably) - Open
Source would be ideal, which will allow the user to see a specific
template once they login, dependant upon the domain they align
themselves to during sign-up.

The user chooses an email username, which is then attached to one of
200 domain names. This domain is branded and the user sees this once
they login through the main portal.

Any pointers?


ps: as for assigning email addresses - I am open to taking advice
here too!! :)

Web analytics question


I am assessing some web products we use at a library. (Yes, not a very exciting environment, but what can you do?)

Can anyone show me some good examples of how to present this sort of data in a report?  And, any good resources on the topic of analytics I can refer to that you may know of?

getting into a master's program when you havepoorundergraduate grades?

Hi again Michael,

Mike Z makes some great points in his post and reminded me that in fact
I was accepted on a conditional basis. Mike also makes suggests getting
in touch with people in the department. Great idea. Get someone on your
side. They may not be able to get you in, but it always helps to have
an advocate and someone who can suggest possibilities for getting what
you want. It's true that schools and their staff want people who are
truly interested in what they offer. It is doable.

You story sounds very familiar.
