Classified or otherwise sensitive government projects.

Possibly also, proprietary company projects.

I'm wondering if others agree with the author about what those trends are or
if there are other issues/trends that people think are important going

Call for chapters: Designing the user experience of future peripatetic users: new HCI design challenges in Space

Submission Deadline: April 15, 2007

Designing the user experience of future peripatetic users: new HCI design challenges in Space

Travelling to the depths of Space is no longer a privilege of astronauts and scientists. Space Agencies are starting to allow those who have the means to afford it, provided that they fulfil a minimum set of physiological requirements to join the ventures into outer space. At the same time, companies are developing spacecrafts for civilian use and plan huge space stations capable of accommodating thousand of settlers.

Forms: One vs Two Email fields

> I have been trying to track down research discussing the use of two vs one
> field for entering an email address on an online form.

I could be wrong about this, but I think the duplicate email field method is
something developers started using to cut down on invalid registrations as a
result of typos. It seems the theory is that by using two fields, the user
has to enter it twice and validation code can be used to make sure they
match, thereby decreasing the chances the entered address is incorrect.

Cooper-style design courses in UK


I've been reading this list for a week or so and have checked out the
archives but haven't been able to find an answer to my question.

I'm trying to convince my manager to send me to San Francisco to do the
Cooper 4-Day Design Practicum and he's asked me to find out if there are
any alternatives closer to home which, by the way, happens to London.
All I've found so far is Adaptive Path's Beyond Usability workshop in
Amsterdam in June.
