Telecommuting via robot

Interesting Guardian article:

'The worker you have to plug in'

IvanAnywhere doesn't look like much, but the robot devised by Ivan Bowman
makes remote working and interacting with his colleagues much easier, says

CfP: A classroom exercise which helps make our research more accessible...

For those of you who are involved with teaching....

I'd like to propose a classroom exercise, which is both fun and which
helps our community make its research more accessible:

I call it "a misDesign" - a rhetorical vehicle, which aims to tie
research themes to short, simple, and funny examples of defective
designs.

I've written two examples of 'misDesigns' to provide inspiration.

[EVENT] Feedback on IxDA Los Angeles & Yahoo present "Personas SUCK / Personas RULE!"

On Wednesday, April 29th IxDA Los Angeles presented "Personas SUCK!

Heartfelt thanks to our speakers: Jill Strawbridge, Adam Korman, all
of our amazing local volunteers who made the night possible, and the
super helpful facilities team at Yahoo! They are seriously on the
ball! The presentation portion was heavily borrowed from the "Death
to personas!

> Where are the interaction design books?

Not necessarily interaction design nor usability specifically, but what
about

* Contextual Design, Beyer and Holtzblatt
* Field Methods Casebook for Software Design, Wixon and Ramey
(old but gold and actually about as expensive)

and my current favourite

* Design Research, Edited by Brenda Laurel

Cheers,

Nick.

Do you know a good HTML person?

Could anyone here recommend a professional HTML coder available for a
small gig? An interesting (really) bootstrap startup developing an
enterprise social software platform is looking for an HTML person. We
have UI/Interaction design, thank you - that would be me - but we need
some HTML done by a person who knows his CSS and JQuery. Both social
gaming and enterprise interfaces are possible good backgrounds (told
you it's interesting). It's going to look great on his/her
portfolio.

Design, Engineering & Rants - a new thread [General]

I can appreciate many of the views shared here. My last post about Engineering IS Design IS Engineering was meant to prompt discussion. It did a little bit. My overall take on this subject is that we are in need of some serious stepping back and re-evaluation of all the disciplines. Take the Stanford site is an interesting case study. They don't help the world by having a design program named, of all things Design. What kind? What department? Graphic, Industrial, Product, ME.

Selling Interaction 10 to Management

Howdy folks... looks like there's a potential light at the end of the
tunnel, and my company may pay once again for a conference trip. So, in
order to do that I kind of have to provide a written "sales" pitch to my
management. Yuck. Anyone have anything "templatized" that I could borrow?

TIA,
David
