Theres been some discussion in the past few months about establishing
a language of critique for user experience design. JJG may have
started it with his closing plenary at the Summit and several people
have blogged about it.

Hello from the Seattle local chapter. I'm organizing a book club
meeting/discussion next month. If you are planning on coming please
let me know.
Designing for the Digital Age (Kim Goodwin) - Chapters 1 -11 (Getting

let's just see how far we get in this meeting.
The out of box experience (OOBE) describes the users first interaction
with a product or service. In the technology sector this first
experience invariably involves plugging stuff in, installing some
software and crossing your fingers in the hope that the product will
work. The problem is that, in far too many cases, it doesnt.
Recent conducted by Accenture in the US shows that each year
consumers return millions of electronic products not because they
dont work, but because customers think they dont work.
Does anyone have recommendations for great workshops they've attended
in the Bay Area recently, having to do with UX, design, or marketing?
A full-day or half-day workshop would be ideal. I've read through
the IxDA events listings, of course, but would like to get the input
of the whole community. Thanks!

database / search platforms for several well-known business
publishers, but this job is focused on our own flagship business
information site which averages about a million page views a day.
