NH UPA June Meeting: Speed Networking & Topic Discussions - Wednesday June 25th, 6:00 PM

NH UPA is trying a new and fun meeting format for June. We're calling
the meeting format NH UPA Speed Networking - similar to speed dating,
but obviously with a different goal in mind!

All those attending the meeting will have the chance to speak with
others in a one-on-one or small group format for a short period of
time before rotating to meet with others. This will be more than just
small talk, though. After a quick introduction, the discussion will
focus on specific topics of interest relating to usability and design.

I'm going to speak up here and ask that the org doesn't officially ban
discussions on patent related info. I for one would rather have some
policy of tagging the discussion by the poster. I don't want to be
required to not be allowed to find out about new patents that have an
impact on my work. I want to know about them.

From Personal Computers to Personal InformationEnvironments: Apple's "MobileMe"?

> Actually, it's iPhone 3G. But wow, what an idea - iPhone 3D!

...according to the WWDC Keynote presentation, it does have OpenGL ES
for 3D graphics in their "Media" API layer. Not sure what applications
already use this, but it wouldn't surprise me if Cover Flow was one
instance of its use.

It does bring up some interesting possibilities.

From Personal Computers to Personal Information Environments: Apple's "MobileMe"?

Just watched the WWDC 2008 (I know, I know, iPhone3D... half the
price.... but that's not the point I want to bring to the table) and I
personally think one of the most interesting services introduced in
the keynote was the new .mac, now called "MobileMe"

"You might have a Mac at home, a PC at work, and an iPhone or iPod
touch. The challenge is keeping multiple devices always in sync.
Enterprises can use a server like Exchange.

new iPhone 2.0 + Interactions '09 = Sw33t

My first thought seeing all the new features in the iPhone 3G, is how easy
it will be to photo, typepad, twitter, and real time blog at next years
Interactions conference, as well as coordinate after hours socializing.

Adaptive UIs (web or otherwise)

Technology Review (MIT's innovation rag) has an article on Adaptive
UIs for the web.

What do people think about this? Does it scale?
from an IxD perspective?
