Video autoplay

Good Morning Ixda!

Working on a project for a business who relies heavily on video autoplay to
drive up video views and ad inventory. As a UCD practitioner, I wholly
believe in my heart of hearts that more is lost than gained in turning
people away from the site based on the aggravation and annoyance of
autoplay. I'm attempting to build a case that removing autoplay will incease
visits, page views, and time spent metrics in the long run. Additionally,
the business will have a better understanding of content consumed by site
visitors by providing an on demand experience.

Meet up in New Zealand

Hello, all!

So the Interactive Community down here in New Zealand seems a little
thin, maybe a meet up would be in order?

It would be great to find out if there are actually any New
Zealanders in this community, and if so, where abouts are you?

Doors of Perception conference this year?

Does anyone know if there will be a Doors conference in 2006?

I'm trying to decide on this vs. CHI. It does look like the CHI conference
has made some nice changes (free courses, longer, organization by practioner
discipline, etc.)

It seems like a choice between Inspiration and Facts. Personally, I find
Inspiration in shorter supply these days...one rarely hears complaints about
Inspiration Overload.

(Plug) Beyond Findability IASummit Pre-Conference Workshop

Hey IxD friends.

I know many of you are still drifting down from the mountaintop experience
in Vancouver, which truly sounded inspiring from the reports on Twitter and
what-not for those of us not able to attend. (I *must* make it to Savannah
next year!)

But we're already looking ahead to March.
