IxDA subscription update

does anyone else find it ironic that an interaction design group sends an email list that a) is titled 'subscription update', and b) consists entirely of links that are formatted in such a way as to make them virtually undreadable?

a) my subscription has not been updated; the email is about activity in the forum to which i have subscribed.

[EVENT Recap] - Chicago - UXsears, multichannel changes in a large organization

It was a big night; easily the most attended event to date. There
wasn't even any food remaining at the conclusion of the event.

Andrew Daniel's presentation was compendious and informative. UXsears
has encountered and tackled significant challenges in the reformation
of an iconic American retailer.

Participatory design with paper prototypes

Hello everyone,

has anybody used participatory design combined with paper prototyping to gather insight as to the best interaction design solution?  

I'm specifically thinking of having users organize, in a guided session, paper widgets and content modules of different sizes to reflect the access they would like to see on the interface to different content items according to their needs and uses. This would be like an extension of conventional card sorting (which we have already done), but to gauge users' needs in terms of access and interaction with the contents.

Job outlook for prospective students.

Hello everyone!

I am a prospective student on a specialization course in interaction design. My background is in a general design programme (with a focus on graphic design) where I have worked freelance with games and apps. What I am interested in is how competetive the job market is out there? The kind of position I would love to have after my specialization course is as a interaction designer at a digital agency preferably in Stockholm - Sweden, London, New York or San Francisco. If anyone of you have any insights regarding this I would be delighted to hear them :)

Bulleted lists for web page content: readability

Has anyone out there done any research on the readability of web page content that is formatted mainly with bulleted lists?

I thought I had seen some research studies on this (which I can't find now for some reason), and I know there was a move a few years back which recommended using bulleted content for quick scanability. I personally find the content more difficult to understand with all those bullets, and if it is not in a normal paragraph format.

What are your thoughts? Thanks!
