Interaction and buying consumer goods

Funny story about buying for your mom. Online searching can result in many
off-brand examples. I saw a new ginsu-like knife with this attachment to
slice with uniform thickness. It's marketed for its "precision" , but could
easily suit seniors. Oddly the advertisement doesn¹t feature this as a
selling point.

PDA UI design plug-in??

Does anyone know of any products or plug-ins (for PhotoShop say) that enable you to design for and view designs as they would appear on a PDA?

IA Article: Rose by any other name...

The Boxes and Arrow archives seemed to be screwed up, so I'm posting a
response to this article here in the hopes it might in a round about
way get back to B&A.

The article can be found here:

I guess I'm left with two questions after reading this article:

1) If you replaced the word "information architect" and "IA" with
"interface designer" and "UI" would you have the same article?

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?
