IPod ecosystem (NYTimes) - changes in all aspects of design

(registration/login required)

This NY Times article highlights the growing speed at which design and
implementation needs to occur in all aspects of product development,
especially when said product development is completely dependent on other
people's work.

The story is about iPod, but it could be about anything where someone is
taking advantage of someone else's success.

I think the mash-up phenomena needs to be cautious

Examples of excellent interaction design NOT on the web

OK - slight diversion, since it's not design for the web, but I had to
share this. Was just catching up with a friend with whom I've worked in
the past, and she shared the most exciting project her team has finished


How cool is *that*?

golden opportunity, a case and a very unusual proposal

Hi All,

I am almost upto doing something which is rather unusual, I guess. I want some opinions of the most passionate interaction designers of you. It might be insane, it might be insane but good for our profession. You think you have the almost ideal job, and might to do something crazy, to get it even better. But by doing it, you might lose your job or credits.

The case:

This is my first job and I am their first and only interaction designer, a medium size company (300 employees). They never made a job offering for interaction design.
