Looking for great User Experience talent

We at Vidli are trying to find a well rounded User Experience

In short, what we are looking for is someone who knows how AJAX
works, can build some intuitive wireframes that designers and
developers can understand and take lead from.

We have a far more in depth job posting on our site at
http://jobs.vidli.com/apply/df5c/7671

Please do take a look and even if you don't have all the
qualifications, we may in the end find you are perfect for the gig.

Thanks!

Setting up a UX conference in Lisbon - need advice and ideas

I'm setting up a 3-day UX conference in Lisbon, Portugal next year,
where many topics such as IA, Usability and IxD will be covered and I
would welcome your feedback on the following:

- What would make you travel to Portugal for such a conference?
- Is the ticket price a decisive factor? If yes, what's the maximum
price you would pay?
- Is including the plane ticket and accommodation on the conference
ticket price something that would help you decide to come?
- Who would you like to see as a speaker?
- Do you prefer to listen to talks or attend workshops or both?

How are you changing the (design) process?

Hey IxDA'ers,
This quote was influential and inspiring when I first encountered HCI in
school:

"Usability is not only about improving the quality of the products, but also
improving the quality of the process by which products are made."
- Rough quote from _A Practical Guide to Usability Testing_ by Ginny Redish
& Joseph Dumas, 1999

What have you all done to improve the quality of the process?
Were you successful? How do you gauge that success?
How did you get into making that improvement?

CfP: Brain Body and Bytes: Psychophysiological User Interaction

Our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CfP

Call for paper

Brain Body and Bytes: Psychophysiological User Interaction

Workshop at CHI2010
April 11, 2010
Atlanta, Georgia, USA
http://www.eecs.tufts.edu/~agirou01/workshop/

The human brain and body are prolific signal generators. Recent
technologies and computing techniques allow us to measure, process
and interpret these signals. We can now infer such things as
cognitive and emotional states, to create adaptive systems and gain
an understanding of user experience.
