Interaction Design vs Interactive Design

Hi Folks,

I am trying to understand and there are some confusion between the two. Are they the same field of design? Is there a clearly defined difference between the two?

Interaction Design (or HCI) Graduate Program In SF Bay Area ?

The School of Information at UC Berkeley offers an interdisciplinary
Master's program (or PhD program) that can be focused on HCI / IxD. I know
a lot of alums (including myself) who have gone into interaction design from
the iSchool Master's program, so I recommend it highly :)


However, as far as I know they don't have a night school offering.

Difficulty viewing IxDA email messages in Thunderbird

I'm having difficulty viewing the IxDA messages in Mozilla Thunderbird (version (20090812)) and I think it's a character encoding issue. When I open the message in Thunderbird, it shows me only a blank message. If I use the View>>Message Source command, the full content of the message is there. This seems to be almost unique to IxDA message traffic (although I've seen it occasionally from other sources) and happens with every IxDA message I receive.
