Selling Interaction 10 to Management

Howdy folks... looks like there's a potential light at the end of the
tunnel, and my company may pay once again for a conference trip. So, in
order to do that I kind of have to provide a written "sales" pitch to my
management. Yuck. Anyone have anything "templatized" that I could borrow?

[EVENT] IxDA Helsinki January meetup today, Thu 29th at 18:00

Hello all,

The second IxDA Helsinki meetup will be held tomorrow, thursday Jan
29th 18:00 at the familiar Ravintola Nolla. This time we’ll hook up in
the other end of the restaurant for some more space and projection
At the event Janne Korhonen from Seos will present a point of view on
sustainable design and it’s value. The overall feel of the evening
will still be loose, informal & relaxed.

Last time we had more than 35 people stopping by, looking forward to
top that this time.

Any suggestions for design training for a beginner?

I¡¯m a Year 3 student in a business school. However, I want to apply
a graduate program of interaction design.

I have only a year before application and decide to learn by myself.
Some knowledge can be acquired by reading books and articles. But
I'm really confused about how to practice "design".

As far as I know, design relates painting, photography, expression of
color and material etc. I had learned painting for 6 years, 2 years
for sketch.

The cultural impact on choosing a type face.

Designers often use different fonts to depict mood or theme for various subjects such as sports, business, comic, horror, fun etc. . . Do we have any best practices about choosing right fonts for conveying those moods? What are the cultural aspect of choosing a type face while designing for different country and culture? Is there any research to know - how people in different part of the world react seeing different fonts or type face?

Are you going to the IA summit? Got time to kill friday?

I hope that subject line was clear enough to catch the right folks and
not annoy the wrong...

If you haven't anything planned Friday, I'm helping a major newspaper do
a little brainstorming with as many smart folks as we can round up.
There will be a present, and a chance to influence old media to be
smarter than new media at new media's game. And there will be a little
present for those who attend the brainstorm.

Personal and Ubiquitous Computing Call for Papers

I have nothing to do with the below, but it came my way and since they
actually have IxD in their sub-title below, I thought it worthy to send to
the list.

Honoraria for remote usability study participants from multiple countries

I'm wondering how others offer compensation in remote usability
studies where participants are drawn from multiple countries. I've
been looking into PayPal, and we've used Amazon in the past but I'd
prefer not to tie people to a particular vendor/site.

Best UI you ever used

Hi everyone,

today I happened to find a thread on UXExchange titled "The best UI you have ever used...?"

While the thread isn't as insightful as I hoped, I thought to throw that question at you guys. Guess we agree that this is mostly about sentiment and not quite measurable :-)

Since we want to maybe learn something, it would be nice to submit some rationale, too. And to further narrow it down, please stick to web-based UIs.
