User Experience Designer
Are you passionate about designing user experiences; know user interface design standards inside and out; know when to break the rules? Are your designs easy, elegant and delightful? Do you believe that people should just be able to use software and not have to learn how to use software?

office interface presentation

A while back there was a link posted for a presentation. The director of UX
for microsoft office was showing the various iterations that the UI went
through and it was captured on video. I've lost the bookmark and wondered if
anyone else had it, or remembered where the video is posted.

Much thanks!

Workshops on interactive prototyping


I'm posting this on behalf of a colelague. He is looking for workshops that
teach interactive prototyping skills.

It looks like there might be a MS blend session at the IXDA conference. Can
anyone confirm that?

Can anyone recommend other conferences that may have such workshops?

Visitor Exit surveys


What are good practices to follow for designing Exit Surveys (not in the sense how many questions to ask, but where does the Exit survey appear? I am working on a site aimed at medical professionals (HCP), & the client would like a survey to pop-up when the users leaves certain sections of the website. This would amount to a user seeing a survey pop-up about 6-7 times in a single visit if his path matches the trigger pages. Obviously that sounds like a bad idea. So how have folks on the list addressed the CRM requirements & UX best practices?

Designing Mystery: Mystery vs Magic - Anticipation vs Wow.

I have read with interest the thread on Exploring the Magic of Design
(http://www.ixda.org/discuss.php?post=46102) and thought I'd start a
related thread on mystery by posting a link to a blog post...

interaction design.

I have been running closed workshops on Designing Mystery since 2002
and have only r
