IA Cocktail Hour Amsterdam --> UX Cocktail Hours Amsterdam


[apologies if you see this message more than once, and congrats on being in the right places ;-)]

For those interested in meeting fellow user experience practitioners when traveling in Europe (and obviously those that live or work close to Amsterdam) I'd like to point your attention to the following announcement.

Since 2001 I have been organizing IA Cocktail Hours in Amsterdam, about 6 a year. These events have always been frequented by a mix of people with and without the job title Information Architect, and with or without a strong focus on IA in their work.

Designing for devices like an ATM, cable top box, etc?

Right now I work for a consulting company designing (ux, visual, front-end markup) e-commerce sites, custom applications, etc. I like what I do, but often think what I really want to be doing is designing on a larger scale. I would love to re-design an ATM interaction, or the on-screen cable guide you use every day.

My question is, how do you start to make this transition? I am young, self taught, and have thought on and off about going to graduate school for HCI. However, I'm not sure that is the right direction for the goals that I have. 

Any thoughts?

Cooper-style design courses in UK


I've been reading this list for a week or so and have checked out the
archives but haven't been able to find an answer to my question.

I'm trying to convince my manager to send me to San Francisco to do the
Cooper 4-Day Design Practicum and he's asked me to find out if there are
any alternatives closer to home which, by the way, happens to London.
All I've found so far is Adaptive Path's Beyond Usability workshop in
Amsterdam in June.

Devil's advocate: but language evolves. (Going to eat some pseudo-academic crow now...) Thank the lord for Daniel Webster - BUT appreciate the ability of language to adapt.
