Account Validation emails

I was working on login experience for our product, and while we have account validation system for newly registered user, by sending an email to the users, I am having a hard time convincing my team to provide a 'Regenerate validation email' link. The Validation emails ofcourse have a expiration time, and there is quite a possibility the user may not access his email to complete his registration immediately.

Are there ways we can help/engage our local community with our design skills?

So I was just looking through my twitter feed and saw a public collaboration from a couple of local visual artists, one of which I know from his academic work, and I was thinking how great it is that he can share the fruit of his work with the community. 

It got me wondering if there is anything that we as UX or Interaction Designers can do in the same way. It's obvious that most of what we do is not consumable in such a passive way as purely visual arts, but surely there is something we can do.

Awards worth fighting for? - 2014 Interaction Awards Call for entries

Awards. The design community as a whole does not suffer from a lack of options when it comes to entering competitions recognizing good design in a multitude of disciplines. Whether you design on a grand scale or focus on the narrowest of fields, on a local and international level, there seems to be a design competition for everyone, everywhere, at any time. So does design awards hold any importance when design has become the norm, or is it merely an excuse to pat each other on the back?

Suggestions for Undergrad Paths Leading to IxD

I'm an adult student, headed back to school to get my first undergraduate degree. I'm very interested in IxD and UX, but am limited to online programs or local to Maryland schools. I'm planning on taking a BS program in Digital Media & Web Technology with minor in Psychology.

Are there any outside trainings I should take or any online programs in IxD I have missed? I know that the University of Baltimore has a MS program in Interaction Design & Information Architecture that I'm hoping to enter once I get my BS.

Tablets, grids and multi-select


I'm designing a business web app that will be used in both desktop and tablet context. I'm wondering if a usable tablet pattern has emerged for offering functionality similar to control-click/shift-click on the desktop, assuming we don't want users to pull up a keyboard just to select control or shift.
