Cognitive Task Analysis?

Hi All, was looking for some pointers on Cognitive Task Analysis.

What are the major differences between HTA and CTA? Are there any specific advantages of using Cognitive Task Analysis than HTA? Is there a specific context where CTA has to be adopted than HTA?

Please do share some samples and pointers, would be of great help :)    thanks

What cool interactions do you want to play with at Interaction09?

Hi all,

A few of us in the IxDA community are working to put together an area at the
conference we're calling the Tangible Interaction Cafe. The purpose of the
cafe is to create awareness of new technologies directly impacting the world
of interaction design, stimulate your senses and creativity and provide
insight on how to approach design using this new technology (including tips
and tricks and challenges, etc.).

We'd like to hear what you have to say! Have you seen something you'd like
to get your hands on or learn more about? Are you working on something that
might fit the bill?

Interaction Design at Disney

Cool Wired article about how Disney R&D is adding more interactivity
to their theme parks via the web and handheld devices:

"Vincent-Phoenix said she has also seen test products that allow
guests to interact with existing attractions. Earlier this year,
Disney tested handheld products that could help ambitious park-goers
find Injun Joe's treasure on Tom Sawyer Island or capture ghosts at
the Haunted Mansion, she said."

Survey for HCI designers in Spain: "5 minutos para 11 preguntas, indoloras que nos ayudarán a todos..."

Disculpad aquellos que recibáis este envío por otras listas...

Hola listeros!

Si pedimos tu participación, es porque desde hace ya tiempo, vemos que todo
lo que enmarca la disciplina del diseño de interfaces orientado a
experiencias de uso y a usuarios, necesita todavía formalizar enfoques y un
marco de conocimiento estándar y reconocido.

Aunque alcanzar la madurez lleva su tiempo, por muy joven que sea nuestro
ámbito laboral, las técnicas y paradigmas con los que trabajamos provienen
de áreas de conocimiento ya bastante formalizadas.
