Difficult - but not impossible.

A couple of years ago I thought through the same problem (having done all my
work for clients so not able to demonstrate prior work - besides most of it
was team work as has been discussed)

My 'solution' was (and still is) to write general papers that I then publish
on my own website:

One of which has been downloaded now over 15,000 times over the last couple
of years.

Guidance for someone interested in your field


I am new to the list, and am interested in getting into
Interaction Design. I have a degree in Industrial
Engineering, and my course work included human factors and
human-computer interaction. I have been working as a
Manufacturing Engineer, and am currently a Production Manager,
and I have no real software design experience. I am currently
reading "The Inmates are Running the Asylum" by Alan Cooper,
am am really enjoying it.

As people working in this field, what suggestions might you
have for someone wanting to become an Interaction Designer?

There are other examples equally puzzling. Cell phones can't be tested where
you would use them. Reception is a real issue for buyers, but only
testimonials from friends in your area will likely sway a purchase decision.

You're obviously an expert consumer. Many people do not go to the effort of
test driving rentals, as you say even if they could find one local to a
rental company.

Issue tracking tool

Hello. I apologize as this is may be more of a project management

We are near the beginning of an interface design project with an Asian
based client. All of the client representatives; designers, developers,
marketing, you name it is based in Asia. Given cuts in travel budget
actual face time will be minimal. We recognize that time and language
differences will make communication and issue/ question tracking a

So, I am looking for a online issue/question tracking tool. Similar to
bugtracking, but for open interaction design questions/ discussions.

sites that are doing this particularly well?

RE: Usabililty In The Home

Wow! Thanks everyone! I was also able to find a lot of references to
past research, especially related to designing for people with
disabilities. (...and I've added Kitchen Stories to my Netflix queue)

I think I may have misrepresented myself a little in my initial post.
What I really want to know is if their are any professionals on this
list or that any of you know, that do this sort of consulting? I would
expect Interaction Designers to work with contractors, builders and
architects to design more useful home environments.
