Bruno Latour on Design

Hi Everybody,

Since there was a little talk of bringing some more academic
discussion to the list I thought I'd share a great article by Bruno
Latour (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruno_Latour)

http://tinyurl.com/6qr477 (warning, PDF)

It is a keynote that he delivered at the Network of Design conference.
I haven't even finished reading it entirely, but already it's really
interesting stuff..

Also, in doing some background reading on Latour I found out a little
about his Actor-Network Theory

See the website for more information.

If you are near Birmingham, come over. We'll have some talks on IxD
and would love to have more interaction designers take part.

# of Designers... on the planet.

Where can I find statistics on the global and US population of
Designers.. from architects to product designers to interaction
designers, etc? An intelligent guess maybe the 'answer'. Can anyone
lead me in the right direction? How many people in the world are
involved in some aspect of Design (almost everyone by definition, but
I'm looking for active professionals)? Statistics about the global
population of engineering-centric folks would be equally useful.

Recruiting & cold calling: pitfalls?

A client has asked us to cold-call some existing customers to do some
fast research on purchasing decisions. This isn't an activity we
normally engage in, so I'm treading carefully.

The survey is fairly short (about 15 questions) and includes a $50
incentive. The call script looks tidy, with the incentive called out
very quickly. We believe the questions are short and clear, and easy
to answer via the phone (as opposed to a readable format like paper
or web). Anybody have additional items we should double-check, or
basic guidance from past experience using this technique?

Thanks in advance

Coroflot Salary survey


Fill it out and instantly see the results online.

Its a done pretty well for how quick it is to fill out. It isn't very
deep in details, but still a nice glossing over.
It is for multiple types of designers--not just IxD.
