IxDA Membership Survey - Nov 2007

Hello IxDA!

The IxDA Board of Directors is about to hold our annual retreat, and
we’d like to get your input into some issues that we will be discussing.

There are a lot of items on the table, but we have created this
survey across two areas we believe are vital to the growth of IxDA as
a community and an organization: the structure of a potential
financial/organizational commitment to IxDA, and how IxDA could
better support employment opportunities.

[PLUG]A new UX blog...just what the world needs!

Thanks to Whitney Hess, whose presentation on "Evangelizing Yourself"
motivated me to finally start a blog.

My first post is an editorial response to Jared Spool's panel at the
Ix09 conference, which asked where will we find the 10,000 new
interaction designers we need to meet the expected growth in our field.
Here's the link:


I would love to hear any feedback, whether as a comment on the site, a
message here, or a private e-mail.

Inline styles and the people who hate them

Sorry about the sensationalist subject line. I couldn't resist.

For the past six months I've been building a massive, consumer Web
application. I took over the development from a guy who was keen on
standards-compliant XHTML (yay!) and keeping every style rule in an external
CSS document (kinda yay). This worked great up until I hit line 6000 of the
external CSS doc and Dreamweaver started choking a little each time I saved.

Then I began grouping pages of the site into sections and creating CSS docs
for each section.

How to Prototype a Game in Under 7 Days

This article of Game Design & Rapid prototyping is worth a read,
especially around the topic of inspiring creativity & ideation.


3. Development: Nobody Knows How You Made it, and Nobody Cares

Nobody Cares About Your Great Engineering

Again, it's worth noting that a great engineer does not necessarily
make a great prototyper. "Correct" or "reusable" solutions are often
not what we look for in quick throwaway code.

No mouse, no touchscreen, high pressure!

Hi there,

I'm looking for resources, guidelines, books etc that could
help with my current ID challenge. Here are the parameters...

* High pressure "factory floor" style environment

* Keyboard only terminals running Windows XP

* No touchscreen or custom input hardware available

* Users have 8 seconds to read and act on screen contents

* May have to fill in values for 1 or 2 fields somehow

Any pointers to existing literature covering this type of
situation would be VERY much appreciated. I dont mind buying a
book or two...
