Thoughts on UXmap

A few months ago I was looking for a local design consultancy in Japan, and had trouble finding one. I thought it would have been great if design and UX-related information is organized geographically. I came up with UXmap.com and began providing local UX information about consultancies, labs, vendors, conferences, education, associations, events, and jobs. I can see how it supports needs of both design and UX people as well as their stakeholders. What do you think? Is there a need for this?

IDEA Conference presentations: all the audio, some slides


If you have only 30 minutes, then listen to Bruce Sterling's closing

Honestly, though, there's lots of great stuff here. Interaction
designers will be keen on Dave Cronin, Jake Barton, Stamen, Fernanda
Viegas, and Robert Kalin.

Brought to you by the IA Institute!

Looking for great concept videos


I'm exploring the use of concept videos in communicating product and
user experience concepts to executives and product stakeholders.

There was this series of concept video that I saw somewhere on the
Internet about a year or two before. Unfortunately, I can't quite
remember the details of it.

There were about five short video clips. Each clip narrated a usage
scenario. They featured real actors but with their face masked by a
white oval. The product concept was related to smart homes and green

If you know what I'm talking about, please let me know.

open discussion vs. community of practice?

Hey there,

In a bar w/ two blokes and one of them says, "I don't think you can
have both an open discussion list and a community of practice."

I've been scratching my head ever since.
Yes, first we need to figure out what a CoP REALLY means, so maybe the
discussion in this thread could start there. It is also a thread about
what do we want IxDA to become.

on your mark, get set, go!

What do you call this list behavior?

I'm working on design patterns for mobile phone applications, and I can't
work out what to call this...


Its a list where the item with focus is expanded to display more
information. Its a true list, not a closeable panel. What would you call
this list behavior/behaviour?

Re-thinking the obvious ... a new London Underground map


I love this! Ok, its a map ... not very interactive, but it is very
contextual and re-thinking user motivation in terms of "how do I get
from point A to point B?"

Taking the London Underground map and re-drawing it so that time as
opposed to distance is the determiner of line length!!!!

TIME!!! What is more IxD than playing the element of TIME.

Too cool!
