Greetings, IxDA! Join us on November 7th for User Research Friday, a
half-day conference in San Francisco on advanced UX research topics.
Speakers include Dan Saffer (author, "Designing the User Experience"), Indi
Young (author, "Mental Models: Aligning User Strategy with Business"), Maya
Duiker (Senior Product Manager, Autodesk), Steve Portigal (Portigal
Consulting), and Nate Bolt (Bolt|Peters User Experience).
I'd been waiting until I had a fuller library of stuff, but since
Core 77 outed it yesterday, I should announce it here.
Inspired by Andy Clarke's talk at Web Directions about drawing
inspiration from the physical world, I've started a collection of
control panels, buttons, dials, handles, animations, icons, etc. It's
meant to be a source of new/old ideas for interaction designers.
