The Ahistoricity of Interaction Design: Tangent to: Where we fail as a profession

Dave, I fundamentally disagree with what I read as the underlying
premiss of this statement.

Sequoia, Diebold Voting Machines

So, when anyone voted today, or in the past weeks, did you use either
the Sequoia or Diebold electronic voting machines?

I voted in D.C. this morning, where each polling place has at least (or
maybe exactly) one Sequoia AVC Edge voting machine (
product=AVC%20Edge&type=Introduction ) and found the user experience
left a lot to be desired; it wasn't even equal to the farecard machines
at the D.C.

Re: I need some advice

Some workers in a situation similar to yours have briefly called in
well-known (and highly paid, to impress management) experts to back
them up.

A "big name" whose work in HCI has resulted in millions or billions of
dollars in sales can often speak directly to top management and make a
case that a lower level employee cannot.

Re: Professional development; employer expectations

I definitely agree with you on the creativity and inspiration part.

Part of the reason that I left my last job is that I wanted to publish a use case and make a presentation on some of our findings, but had no support or interest from senior management.

Hello, everyone! I need some help with my dissertation, and I wish I
took take a minute of your time to help me collect some information
about Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), specially regarding the
INTERACTION DESIGN PROCESS in different countries:

1- Does your company/office have any specific practice to protect
(IPR), including Copyright, Design Right, Design Registration,

2- If YES, how does your company/office disseminate such practices?
(eg. Training? Employee Hand Book?)

3- Are you familiar with how such practices are regulated in your
country? (eg. Legislation?

Re: What makes a good prototyping tool?

To me a good prototyping tool consist of following:
1. Does not geneate production quality code ( really ).
2. Provide out of the box basic UI components for several target platforms and devices.
3. Allow me to create custom UI components easily and quickly (hopefully without programming).
4. Also has basic drawing tool features.

ADMIN: filtering certain attachment types

Hi everyone,

With the great help of Michael Bartlett I've configured both the Discuss@
and Workgroup@ lists so that only a specific type of attachments can get
through. If an attachment doesn't match a specific mime type it will not be
allowed onto the list.

image, office apps, pdf, flash are still allowed through.

PIF, ZIP, and EXE are NOT allowed through (e.g.)

For the most part people shouldn't be sending attachments at all through
this list of any type ... but there might be cases where it is necessary and
I don't want to eliminate it at all.
