Seattle Monthly IA/UX Meetup - January 10th (venue change)

Once a month, we get together to have drinks, chat, network, and geek
out with fellow information architects, librarians, usability experts,
user experience designers, and other like-minded user-centered
professionals and students. It's open to anyone, so bring a friend --
especially those in other local organizations! The format will be
casual, but all are encouraged to bring something to discuss -- recent
work, an interesting topic, or even your resume.

Mozilla Weave, the browser stepping to onlnie service it's self

Hi guys:
no double, the weave is some interesting step to lead the firefox going
futhur, and it's also interesting, it mentions "enhancing user experience"
and adopt persona/senario style use case.
Quite interesting to see how it'll go.

Looking for a "scrolling" navigation

Hi All,

I'm trying to find an example of a navigation that scrolls down a
webpage as the user does. For example, let's say we have a page that
has a main content area and a left nav. When the user scrolls the page
down, I'd like the left nav to slide into view as soon as they stop
scrolling. It will always display at the top left of the section of the
page they are viewing. I know I've seen this somewhere, but I can't
find it.

WAS: Embedded Interaction Design? NOW: Bad Recruiters


Amen brotha! I'm right there with you on the disservice of certain
recruiters. I just went through a period that I was looking for
something, and was inundated with "opportunities" from these
"recruiters". Needless to say, 85% of all emails to me were of this
type. And, one of the the things that really made me angry was the
fact that they saw one skill on my resume that made me a "great" fit
for something such as a Java developer position. Um, hello, did you
NOT look at my resume?

Embedded Interaction Design?

Happy New Year All!

I was hoping to tap the collective consciousness with a career
direction question... I'm keen to work on projects that have a
hardware component as the deployment platform: Cell, GPS, PDA, Set
Top, embedded, etc... I just feel better suited to this realm based
on experience and Industrial Design training... I've been getting a
LOT of call for web work, but prefer to stay focused on my chosen
area of expertise.

How can I communicate this to prospective contracts, hiring managers
or would-be suitors?

Need advice: the login form that did signups

Hi and thanks in advance for the replies.

I decided I don't want anything from the user at signup. Well, except
an email, a password and possibly a captcha to skip the email
I want my login form to do signup as well.

When the user presses submit, if the email is not in the db, I tell
him to enter the captcha and, after a second submit, i present him
with his dashboard.
There is of course a use case for users that forgot their account data.

What do you think about this when comparing with the classic login
form + additional "new account" button? And ...
