How did you first get into interaction design?

I recently wrote a post about how I became an application designer. Originally I worked as sound designer/ editor for games in Los Angeles, and had a need for tool to help my colleagues and I on job, that I managed to design and develop.

Is there a good reason to require people to id their credit card?

Hi all,

Given that it's fairly easy to identify what kind of credit card someone
is using (Visa/MC/Discover/etc), is there a good reason to require

Hey all--

Good Design Faster (April 2-3 in San Francisco) is Adaptive Path's
newest workshop -- a unique experience where attendees spend two days
with Adaptive Path practitioners sketching interactive experiences and
turning them into functioning prototypes.


The basic premise of Good Design Faster is that wireframes are good
for some things, but quick, iterative, interaction-oriented design
ain't it.

In this workshop, we'll take participants from back-of-the-napkin
