Flex and the Halo model

Anyone on the list used Macromedia Flex and the "Halo experience model"?

getting into a master's program when you havepoorundergraduate grades?

Hi again Michael,

Mike Z makes some great points in his post and reminded me that in fact

IxD event at 10th National Design Awards

Just received information on this event but it looks interesting hosted the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and a part of the 10th Annual National Design Awards. Perceptive Pixel won the Interaction Design award (http://bit.ly/2HtFFh). There seems to be several other FREE public programs (http://bit.ly/3UH7Et) occurring with Jeff Han (of PP) giving a talk on the Future of Interaction Design.

Anyone in the DC area may want to give it a look. I’m very tempted to head down myself.
