Recruiters and Other Employment Posters

When the new site launches next week, a key enhancement is the
addition of a job board.

This board allows you to post details of your job offering within a
clear, directed form. You will be able to define the job title,
details, full- or part-time or contract, and rich-text details. You
can also target specific IxDA local groups where you want to post the
job (as well as it being available in the full job board).

So make sure you come back to the site early next week and post your

Fw: Publicly available video resource?


Though I'm mindful of the fact that you're in the UK and downloading video
may be something of a chore, I'd suggest you give The Open Video Project (
http://www.open-video.org/) a look.

(especially, the stuff from the Uni of Maryland ...

Talking at cross purposes of learnability vs facility

re: Should reducing number of clicks be of primary concern?

Until we have a better framework for this conversation we will continue to
talk at cross purposes. It's fascinating seeing how this process repeats
itself with such regularity, even with what must be extremely competent
thinkers. Each side entrenches more deeply into its mutually exclusive
extremes and mislabels the discussion for its own generalized worldview.

Low Cost, Off Site, Remote Testing Options and Strategies

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone has experience with very low cost, off-site
testing software and strategies.

In the next few months I may have to conduct several off-site
interaction observations but will not be able to travel. At my disposal

Inline audio and text translations

Hello, everyone. Thanks for the constant stream of useful information.
I've lurked and learned from this list for a while. It's great.

translations of journal or magazine articles? A customer would like
to include translations for small blocks of an article. The blocks
will be of an arbitrary length. Each block would have a corresponding
Spanish and Chinese translation of the original English text. Their
idea is to include an icon at the end of each block that will play an
audio translation of that block.
