Differnce between user interface and interactiodesign?

>>> Wipe out the entire design colony and start afresh and just name
>>> anyone who does work in any of these areas as a Designer.
>> Amen brother.

> That makes two of us.

That unfortunately still doesn't solve the problem that often people -
including arguably at least two postings to this very thread - refer to
people who *develop* interfaces as designers.

XP: Extreme Programming & Product Usability

They don't fit in. :)

Here's why:

XP relies on a "customer" to decide which features should be implemented
and when. A "customer" may be a product/project manager, customer service
employee, a marketing resource, etc.

Compared to What?

Feeling free to blatantly point to my own take on "Compared to What?,"
<http://meiert.com/en/blog/20080703/compared-to-what/>. I understand
this concept's root in information design, but worry about the
supposed fact that not only many "designs", but rather news sources
fail in answering that question.

Great product pages

Does anyone have examples of sites with product pages that they really
like? We're looking at new ways to present product information on our
site. Our pages currently have a lot of data and we're looking for
ways to improve the experience and reduce the clutter.

Examples that we've found include the Vaio laptop pages (dashboard,
large images, etc.), Trekbikes.com (simple, large images), etc.

Any other good examples out there?

Call for Entries: CHI2009 Student Design Competition


I want to invite you and students you mentor to contribute to the CHI2009
Student Design Competition; the competition, in its sixth year, is an
international venue for showcasing undergraduate and graduate design work.
CHI in 2009 will be held in Boston, MA.

The design problem this year focuses on the idea of local resource
consumption; the problem given to students is:

Design an object, interface, system, or service intended to support the idea
of utilizing or consuming local resources rather than global resources, in a
sustainable and environmentally efficient manner.

CONAN Design Review

Hi IxDA Community,

I am part of the board effort to create a brand new website for IxDA. The
project name is CONAN.

We are looking for volunteers to review each page design, and also give us
inputs on the overall navigation.

The review may take something around 15-30 minutes from your time.

Each and every contribution is very important.
