[plug] Prototyping and other classes in NYC

NEW SMART EXPERIENCE CLASSES + WORKSHOPS:

<-- PETER MORVILLE COMES TO NYC -->

After having the foresight to co-author the book "Information
Architecture for the World Wide Web" in 1998, Peter is looking
forward again to understand how we'll reconcile the timeless
principles of design and organization with new transmedia models
of interaction, co-creation, tagging, and user participation.
His article "Information Architecture 3.0" [1] drew heated
reactions, and soon he'll bring these ideas to New York in a
workshop [2] to examine how integrating product developmen

The Peer-to-Patent Project

The patent system today is a joke. Its badly broken, and we suffer for it.
Both in our work as IxDs and as private consumers. The most ridiculous and
overly broad patents are granted left and right for claims that are
obviously bogus to anyone with any domain knowledge.

Target.com Loses Accessibility Law Suit

Since today seems to be an introductory day, I'm relatively new to
the list as well.

I noticed there was finally a ruling on this case. Not sure of the
ramifications yet though, but this may be a major shift for any web
business, at least in California. Instead of accessibility being a
best practice issue it may become a legal one even outside of
government work.

Site to Store - Ship to store

I was wondering if there is any research -article etc... on Ship to Store or site to store option provided my many compmanies these days. Since more and more brick & mortar companies have started to include site to store or shop online and receive from store option(like linen n things, circuitcity, radio shack and walmart.com recently started), they are going to gain a lot by this new shopping experience.

New to IxDA

I am also new to IxDA. I have recently made a career move that puts
meet in the middle of IxD. In the past I have always done both print
and digital design. I got a BFA in Graphic Design. Now I am an IxD
for a large global software consultancy. I have a lot to learn but am
up for it. So I thought I would get involved in the IxD communities.
Check out my website at http://nathanphilpot.com. Any advice or tools
for learning more about IxD or in particular Javascript/AJAX would be
appreciated.
thanks
Nathan

Who designs what? (see diagram...)

Given that "design" is a very overloaded and broad term, I often
find it necessary to communicate what "product design" is responsible for,
and "who designs what".

To that end, I created this very basic diagram. I'd love to get feedback from members of the list.
The purpose is to spell out who is designing what and provide an indication of:

1) structure of the two depts.

2) responsibilities of the two depts.

3) communication between the two depts.

What did I leave out?

Introducing myself

Hi,

Since I just joined the list I thought I'd write a quick note to
introduce myself. I'm Matt Nish-Lapidus, an Interaction Designer from
Toronto Ontario, Canada. I've been involved in the web in various
ways since 1995 and just recently completely switched focus to web
based interaction design.

Unlike a lot of people I meet who are interested in IxD, my
professional background is in interface development/engineering and my
education is in fine art.

I'm not really a graphic designer, but I have a strong interest in
design in general.
