IxDA.org will be down for 15-30 minutes at 10AM MNT

Hi Everybody,

This is a notice to let you all know that there will be 15 - 30 minutes of downtime today in order to run some system updates. These updates will hopefully help the threading issues on the discussions, but we're not totally sure.

The site will be down from approximately 10AM MNT (12PM EST) to 10:30AM MNT.

Thanks!

Matt & the IxDA Board

Mobile phone - environment interactions?

I'm looking for clever example of mobile phones interacting with the
environment, like in a museum or a retail space. I'm thinking of
interactions like pushing information to phones while the person is on-
site, or having them use their phone to make queries or send text
messages to an on-site system. I feel like this has come up on the
list before, but I didn't find anything in the archives.

I'm not sure if this technology would just be a gimmick, or something
that could be made useful and/or fun.

A little help reviewing our design process

Hello all,

I've been working on a UCD process for my new job for the last couple weeks.
I'm starting to get batty in the head sorting all the activities and tools
and what they are, how they should be used, the different terminology and
philosophies behind them, and so forth.

I'm wondering if I am missing anything or have too much/duplicate
activities/deliverables and could really use a sanity check.

out of different parts of the organization and make it visible to all and
available to design teams.

Netbooks lead the way on how we’ll be using our mobile phones in the near future

As per surveys, Netbooks are being used primarily for business,
entertainment and communication and it's being seen as a secondary
device. I've covered that in more detail here:

http://sachendra.wordpress.com/2009/08/16/netbooks-lead-the-way-on-how-well-be-using-our-mobile-phones-in-the-near-future/

Since it's not replacing the laptop, I think what’s basically missing
is a phone added to the mix.

Do you actually possess "design" skills

Hi,

I've recently encountered many Interaction Designers who call themselves "designers" yet have no drawing, photographic, layout or any artistic skills whatsoever. How is this even possible? Maybe the term "organizer" or " choreographer" should be more appropriate?
