Design and Design Research Book: "Design Research Now"

New Book on Design and Design Research.
Michel, R. (Ed.) (2007). Design research now: Essays and selected
projects. Basel: Birkhauser.

There has been a lot of debate on this forum about the meaning of
design, design thinking, and design research. The book referenced
above has a set of essays that examine the relationship between design
and design research. The book examines the semantics of the word
"design" and the evolution of design as a science and discipline.
Design is examined from the perspectives of architects, visual
designers, industrial designers, and engineers.

The ONE Book!

Hi

Which is that one book on Design/UX/IxD/Usability/etc etc that you
will like to gift to your engineering folks in management as a new
year gift that will make them understand its need and value. On
similar lines which is that one book that you will like to gift the
hands-on engineering folks to make them understand that thinking about
user needs is equally important as thinking about the algorithms.

Mind you only one book for each that will create the maximum impact on
their thought process :-)

Cheers
Pankaj

BOOK Announcement: HCI Remixed

We're pleased to announce a new book that should interest IxDA folks.

HCI Remixed: Reflections on Works That Have Influenced the HCI Community

What is a remix? In music, a remix is an edited version of a song
that builds on the themes of the original while incorporating new
elements. But anything can be remixed, and in HCI Remixed we asked
contributors to reflect on a piece of work -- a paper, system or demo
-- that is at least ten years old.

or so.

Negotiating with difficult {clients|coworkers} suggested readings

Periodically we all confront problems of negotiating with clients who
want unreasonable things, or coworkers who seem to be opposed to any
form of change that would improve usability.

I would like to recommend two books that have helped me in dealing
with such situations. Both come out of the Harvard Negotiation
Project. They're both easy reads and I found them chock full of good
analysis techniques and useful advice.

IxDA Savanna - Call for Authors and Books

Hi All,

As the unofficial librarian, I am calling out to all IxDA members that are
authors. For the IxDA conference in Savannah, Dave M came up with the
brilliant idea of making sure that the SCAD bookstore was carrying as many
IxD, IA, UX related books and has asked me to compile a list to send to the
bookstore. In the spirit of community, I want to make sure that at the top
of the list given to the bookstore are fellow IxDA members.
