Account Change


I entered my name incorrectly. Currently my last name is listed as *Thoams*.
It should be *Thomas*.

How can I get that changed? I didn't see this option in the profile page.

Sorry for the hassle.

IAI $1000 Progress Grants Deadline Oct 31

Hey folks. I could've sworn I sent this to the IxDA list when we first
started announcing it about a month ago, but I can't see where the email
actually made it to IxDA. Here's another shot.
The official announcement is below, but I wanted to add a few things to keep
in mind:

- The grants are open to work being done in Interaction Design or any
other field related to IA.
- If an idea crossed your mind and you thought it was too crazy to get a
grant, grab that idea and give it a shot.

Tool to annotate recorded conversation/dialogue

I'm trying to see if there are any research tools to annotate recorded conversations between two or more people including their actions in a workspace environment. Also if there was a way in which qualitative data could be measured to see if the process of communication works in different scenarios.

Critique: Ranker.com

Hi All,

I was wondering if you'd take a second to provide some honest
feedback on a website I worked on briefly. The site is
http://ranker.com and it's for creating lists for anything from
shopping lists to top-10 lists. It's been months since I was last
employed there, but I really wanted to get your impressions since
they've recently launched their beta.

Technically, I think there are a lot of cool things about the site
(drag/drop, same page state changes, etc.) but I always felt like it
was the technology that really drove the design.

A follow-up on "gritting my teeth and bearing it"

A few months ago I wrote to this list, sort of complaining and sort of
asking for advice on whether I should stand my ground on asking for a
feature that our test users wanted and the absence of which I felt
would seriously degrade the user experience.

This week the product is in beta test...

Survey for HCI designers in Spain: "5 minutos para 11 preguntas, indoloras que nos ayudarán a todos..."

Disculpad aquellos que recibáis este envío por otras listas...

Hola listeros!

Si pedimos tu participación, es porque desde hace ya tiempo, vemos que todo
lo que enmarca la disciplina del diseño de interfaces orientado a
experiencias de uso y a usuarios, necesita todavía formalizar enfoques y un
marco de conocimiento estándar y reconocido.

Aunque alcanzar la madurez lleva su tiempo, por muy joven que sea nuestro
ámbito laboral, las técnicas y paradigmas con los que trabajamos provienen
de áreas de conocimiento ya bastante formalizadas.

Google Wave - Very first impressions


Got my invite for Google Wave today, and played around with it a little.
It's hard to judge it that early, and I only participated in public
discussions, no private ones.

Right now Google Wave feels somewhat messy to me, the combination of
wiki-like features, chat and forum (threaded conversations) is somewhat
confusing. Maybe this is just at first.

The way the conversations are presented in the inbox seem to focus a lot on
the topics, less on the people.
