Recruiting UT participants in San Fran

Anyone know some good participant recruitment companies in San Fran?

I'm going to be there in mid March (following SXSW) and am going to be doing some user testing while there.

We've got a participant profile which is fairly basic but we will be needing 8 users for 1.5 long sessions.

Any recommendations appreciated.

design exercises and/or portfolio review during interview

Hi all, Have any of you ever given design problems/exercises to someone interviewing for an Interaction design position? If so, how well did that work, and how did you come up with the design problems? It seems that the design problems cannot require a lot of background about the users or specialized domain knowledge since we have limited time with each candidate.

One person has suggested to me that reviewing a candidate's portfolio would be a better approach. I was thinking a combined approach might be useful. What do you think?

All ideas and experiences welcome!

Are you coming to Interaction '11 and want to give a talk on campus?

Hello again from (not-so-cold-anymore) Boulder!  I know this is late notice but I figured I'd throw it out there in case anyone was interested.  The research group that I'm part of, The Center for Lifelong Learning and Design (L3D) at CU generally has its meetings every Wednesday from 11:30-1.  We don't have anything scheduled for next Wednesday, but if you're going to be in town for Interaction '11 and would like to give a talk to students, researchers, faculty, and professors, let me know!

Best Practices: Play, Pause, Stop etc.

Howdy--

I'm having trouble finding discussions about transport controls. how do people feel about Play changing to Pause or Stop instead of using separate buttons?

  • Do Pause and Stop have universally understood meanings?
  • What is the difference between them?
  • What do people prefer regarding Rewind and Fast Forward -- when should they jump to the next unit, marker, or section instead of shuttling?
