Scholarships, Grants and Financing your education


I hold an undergraduate degree in Graphic Design and have been working as a User Interface Visual Designer for the past year. I am interested in going back to school to get a Masters in a more specific and tech based field in the Fall of 2011. I have been looking into NYU Poly and other NYC based schools, since this is where I am from.

Do you know of any organizations that help financially in the education and advancements of Interaction Design?

Also if you know of any programs which are excellent I would love to hear about them. Thank You!

New open source tool: video note taking utility


---------- Forwarded message ----------

Hey all,

A potentially useful new tool for those of you who work with video
analysis. A colleague here at IBM Research developed a video note taking
tool that is being made available open source. It ties in basic review and
logging functions so that you don't have to toggle back and forth between
the video and text files for notes.

How useful is this - HFI-Certified UsabilityAnalyst?

I direct several seasoned UCD practitioners, none of whom are HFI-certified.
Elsewhere in my company, another UCD group focuses on specific types of
apps, and they are almost all HFI-certified.

The biggest difference I have seen in comparing their work to ours is
consistency in deliverables, methods and terminology (theirs, not ours =]).
As far as end results (are things more usable after engagements?), we both
perform about the same (see reasons below).

Aside from the cost of certification, I haven't seen any big negatives to

How do you get fast?

Hi everyone, I have a simple question:

How do you get (and stay) fast?

I'm imagining many of us need to work under strict deadlines and budgets, and of course keeping within the boundaries of those budgets is an important quality of the work we do. So what are your tricks? How do you manage estimations, planning, and generally how do you get really fast at what you do? I'm interested in everything from tricks with the tools to how you go through the day, to how you plan your time in a project. 

Looking forward to awesome answers!
