Re: I need some advice

Some workers in a situation similar to yours have briefly called in
well-known (and highly paid, to impress management) experts to back
them up.

A "big name" whose work in HCI has resulted in millions or billions of
dollars in sales can often speak directly to top management and make a
case that a lower level employee cannot.

Physical Interaction Design

I was interested in Lisa deBettencourt's comments about their (Bose's)
design's being rendered in steel plastic etc.
Here's a thought: how about trying to design a generic physical "front end"
that can be dynamically updated. Such a system would enable you to make
changes as and if needed, plus enable your users to customize (and
personalize) their physical interfaces if they like. This issue is obviously
fraught with many problems, but can also be an interesting, maybe even an
exciting innovation for the physical interface world.

Know of a good Wiki for dictionaries?

Hi everyone,

After some research I am still to find a wiki which I could adapt to become
a dictionary. I have been trying to find something like a Wikitionary,
preferably without the ugliness but since this kind of tool seems to be

Many thanks in advance!

Last call: IxDA Board of Directors call for applications

When I first discovered IxDA several years ago, I knew early on that I
had found a professional home for myself. At first, that meant
knowing there was a group of people out there who shared my passion
for all things Interaction Design. Then lurking turned into planning
and attending IxDA local events. Then came the conference, and now the

Why mention this?

It was in my increased involvement that I realized the impact IxDA
affiliation was having not only on my own personal practice but also
on the community itself.

Sketching & Prototyping Workshop IA Summit March 19th [PLUG]

Times running out and space is limited. So, you better sign up while
you can still get in.

Leah Buley of Adaptive Path and I are running a full day workshop at
the IA Summit on sketching and prototyping—you won't want to miss it.
It's the first time we've done this workshop together, but previous
versions of her sketching workshop and my prototyping workshops have
sold out. Now, we're bringing the best of both worlds together for the
first time.

What are you waiting for?
