Interaction 12 - Co-host Selection

The Call for Proposals to co-host Interaction 12 has now formally closed. I'd like to thank all of the groups who showed interest in the process and the opportunity to bring the IxDA's conference to their city.

Submissions will be reviewed and evaluated over the coming few days. Groups may be contacted for clarification of their proposal, but material changes to the submission will not be permitted.

Creating Interactive PDFs - Need help

I've written a usability report that I converted from Word to a PDF (based on limited tools I have to work with), but wanted to add some interactive elements in it -- namely the ability (1) to show larger images and (2) play embedded videos from a link.  Unfortunately, despite the limited tutorials I've found and Adobe's mediocre help content, I haven't been able to figure out how to do it, and was hoping someone else has done something like this.

useful too for seeing mouse activity

Hi, maybe you guys already know about this, but we found this great tool. It's positioned as an "art" tool, but it's been great for us to quickly view mouse and click activity. It's free and available here:

[Actually, it IS nice art as well...]

We have no connection to this company - hope you like it.

Brand strategy documents/Design handbooks do they contain behaviours and experiences?


I have been working with a few companies now on designing services, and particularly assisting them with the transfer from brand strategy to service experience. All of the companies I know of, have reasonable but traditional brand strategy documents (text and ppt) and traditional design handbooks (text, images, logos, fonts).

Ergonomics / UX / Human factors / Interaction design / Usability specialists : I get confused



I'm french and I work as what we call an "ergonome". I'm a bit confused about all the terms that are used to speak about "UX/usability/interaction" related jobs in the english speaking world : I read things about "Interaction designers", "Human factor specialists", "User experience specialist", "Usability specialists", "Information architects", and I'm... lost.

Examples and definition of 'workflows' in software interactions


I'm having a slight disagreement (with an engineer) as to what defines workflow in our software. Any thoughts or experiences on how you've defined / implemented it in your products?
