IxDA Mentorship Program - Update


Just a quick update on the IxDA Mentorship program. Since we launched
the program on June 13th, 37 people have volunteered to be Mentors,
127 people have requested a Mentor, and we’ve matched 37 total pairs.
Recently, we asked for feedback on the program, and here are some
positive responses:

My mentor is great.
I got clarity as to how the job market in my field has changed in the
past 5 years.
I got coaching as to what to apply for now, and how to position
myself for my next specialty area.
I ordered the book she recommended, and have started reading it.

UX/Usability folks on Twitter


Today I started making a list of the UX/usability folks on Twitter.
The list is here: http://bit.ly/UXTweeps

If you're not on it and you'd like to be, or if you're on it and you'd like
to be removed, please let me know. Or if you know someone I've missed.

IxDA website project: it\'s a go!

Dear IxDA community & those who care about us,

Firstly, THANK YOU again to all the IxDA supporters from around the
globe who contributed financially during our recent fundraising
drive. IxDA garnered $15,813, over half-way towards our ambitious
goal of $30,000 to support the IxDA.org website redesign project
(code-named Conan).

Some folks have been wondering if the Conan project will be able to
continue despite not reaching our fundraising goal. I'm happy to
announce that the project is very much a GO! The fundraiser was not
the determining factor for this project.

IxDA Mentorship Program


The IxDA Mentorship volunteer group is ready to formally kickoff the
first phase of the mentorship program. This phase is technically and
logistically simple; volunteers act as "match makers" to pair
potential mentors with those seeking some professional assistance.
This is a fluid, amorphous initiative; there is no set program, or
set of activities for people to do. Instead, we hope to encourage
digital relationship building that can extend into the real world as

Elements of User Experience: Strategy Plane & Scope Plane Sample

Hello Experts,

While I am reading the Jesse James Garrett's "The Elements of User
Experience", in the chapter Strategy Plane & Scope Plane, he talked
about the documents that a Experience Designer should create.

Does anyone know the sample? I am actually started in to this field,
and I am newbie, so I am looking for samples and ideas that how the
Expert put it in to the real life scenario.

So if anyone knows about it, would you please let me know?

Its Just UX

During the closing plenary of the IA Summit on Sunday, Jesse James
Garrett said that “Information Architecture is not a profession …
and neither is Interaction Design … we have and always will be User
Experience Designers”. I’m paraphrasing a little from memory (the
podcast isn’t out yet) - but the gist is there.

I’m a big believer in this viewpoint (and I chaired the IA Summit
last year!).

IxDA Value and Purpose

Hello All,

I'm excited to be able to tell you about some work the Board has recently completed.

At our Board retreat earlier this month, the Board (http://www.ixda.org/about_leadership.php) reaffirmed and clarified the mission of our organization. I am just so excited to be able to share this with you, and I hope that after you've had a chance to read and discuss, that you'll share my enthusiasm.

IxDA has always been dedicated to two propositions.

Is it just my imagination or...

have the discussion lists I have followed for years - SIGCHI and STC
Usability - been abandoned in favor of IxDA? I have all my professional
discussions filtered into one folder, to read when I have time, and notice a
dramatic drop in postings from the two I mention. The names of those who
post, however, has changed much less.

I assume most of us have limited time to read and write discussion posts, so
it make sense to focus on a forum that gives the most bang for the buck.
