Vending Machine Designers

We have a client who is looking to create a ³limited² edition vending
machine for a potential series of events starting on February Œ06. If
there¹s anyone on the list with this kind if experience, would you drop me
an e-mail? Also, if you have any portfolios online that would be helpful
for us to review, that would be great! Thanks in advance for any help.

Core Values for UCD and Agile


I am currently working on my master's thesis. To succeed, I will require
your help. The thesis will analyze possible interfaces between User
Centered Design and agile software development. As it is not possible to
provide a one-fits-all process those interfaces will serve as connection
points which will enable agile processes to encase UCD methods.
Approaches in this direction already exist, but validation is scarce.

The fields have a lot in common, but the more I learn about them the
more differences I spot.

What makes an RSS reader good ...

As soon as I find one, I'll let you know. ;)

But seriously ...

I'd like to be able to take notes about a post and save them with post
snippets and a link back to the post. I'd like navigation that doesn't
involve a treeview control (gasp!).

SVA v. Bentley

Hi all,

Does anyone have any thoughts on SVA's Interaction Design program v. Bentley's Human Factors in Information Design program?

For background: I've got a few years' experience as a project / product manager, and want to get more into hands-on UX work, and be able to design products and digital services from the ground up (I'm not a developer, though I did study computer science way back in college).

A question of depth

I had a very interesting conversation with a customer who insisted that
their [very well documented] 'business process' was wholly separate from any
human or system interaction. On further investigation I found notable
evidence of human involvement.

This is a common 'traditional' attitude in the manufacturing and automotive
sectors as their is an historically, well defined supply chain. IT plays a
fundamental role in that supply chain and tends to rely heavily on a
pre-defined business process i.e. well established mainframe applications,
that are undergoing change to increase productivity.
