YADQ (Yet Another Design quote)...

...this time, from Tom Peters:

"The dumbest mistake is viewing design as something you do at the end of the
process to 'tidy up' the mess, as opposed to understanding it's a 'day one'
issue and part of everything."

This was on a throwaway received by a friend of mine; I lookes through my
collection of Peters's works, and had a look on the Internet, but could not find
the quote or its source.

Audio mapping: "too near" and "too far"

Does anyone know of a good natural audio mapping for "too close" and "too far away"?

Users are using a laser scanning device to capture a 3D shape. The device functions well within a certain range distance from the shape, less so when getting closer or further away from it. The software should provides audio feedback to indicate where the user is in relation to the ideal distance.

It's an excellent book, but it's not about interaction design, just
user-centered design methodologies.

Graduate Project

Hi Guys,

First of all, I think I made mistake for previous email, I send a blank email accidentally due to misunderstanding "new" and "send" button.

Now I am going to explain my problem:
I am doing Master of Art in Interaction Design in Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht, The Netherlands. I need to do graduation project next year, starts January. Since I consider (and read) that in our field, we are lacking of good tools, so I am planning to make concept (and if possible) build tools that helps interaction designer to design, prototyping and analyzing his/her design.

Remote IxD work

I have worked on a few small, remote IxD projects (involving primarily
expert reviews, wireframes, task flow diagrams, etc - not user research),
and have discovered it can either be a pretty tricky process to maneuver or
a complete cake-walk.

I'm wondering what experiences others on this list have had. Are there
particular issues you've come across over and over, specific to remote
projects, or has it changed every time according to the client and the
client's process?
