Interaction Designer Certification

Has anyone taken the Cooper
<> certification

If so, is it worth the time and monetary investment?

I attended the four-day Interaction
<> Design Practicum a
year ago and, after putting the training to use in my company, I would like
to further my knowledge.

Hello all,
I'm looking for charting toolkits and libraries, and
hoping for a tip.
I'm working with a development team to create some
business intelligence, reporting and analysis software.
In addition to standard line and bar charts, the

What is the specific product from ADP that is the focus of your example?

When I read this the first thing I thought of was online support services
for web services (like hotmail). Try to get an answer to a support issue.
<ehehe> Every question is put into a system of keyword auto responses.

Interaction Design and other fields

Regarding whether IxD is limited to systems which have a software
component. I disagree, I mean people do interact with objects/systems in
the real world which don't have any software components, I think any
system that interacts with people can be worked upon/improved. It's true
the field of Interaction Design evolved out of the need to improve
software systems, but look at something like the telephone. Most
telephones now have software (somewhere down the line), we can apply
interaction design to telephone systems at various levels.
