Brilliant Viral Video

I was blown away by the recent MoveOn.org customized video. Whether you are
for Obama or McCain, it seemed like a new level of sophistication in viral
marketing that is worth a serious look.

For those not in the US, MoveOn is a liberal organization that is supporting
Obama in the election.

In case you have not seen it yet, this is a video that is customized with
your name in the content of the video.

Interview Excerpt: Marc Rettig

I've been fortunate to get some great interviews with interaction
design luminaries for my upcoming book. Most of the interviews have
been too long to publish in their entirety, so I'm excerpting them on
the book's website and including some (great) material that
unfortunately won't make it into the book.

I've just posted the first excerpt: an interview from Chapter 1 with
Marc Rettig, discussing the History and Future of Interaction Design.

2nd CFP: Best Practices in Longitudinal Research (Workshop @ CHI 2009)

CFP: CHI 2009 Workshop: Best Practices in Longitudinal Research

Submission Deadline: Thurs, Oct 23, 2008, 5pm PDT

Workshop overview

Traditional user research and evaluation methods tend to focus on
'first-time' experiences with products, which trends the results towards
discoverability problems, rather than usability concerns that may persist
over time. This workshop will extend current thinking by an in-depth
discussion of methods and metrics for longitudinal data collection.

I despise extraneous frippery, but...

HEMA is a Dutch department store. The first store opened onNovember 4, 1926,
in Amsterdam. Now there are 150 stores all over the Netherlands. HEMA also
has stores in Belgium, Luxemburg, and Germany. In June of this year, HEMA
was sold to British investment company Lion Capital.
Take a look at HEMA's product page (http://producten.hema.nl/). You can't
order anything and it's in Dutch but just wait a couple of seconds and watch
what happens...

PS: Even better if ya spraak a hel klein beetje Nederlandse

REMINDER: [EVENT] IxDA DC Social: Monday April 28

IxDA D.C. Face-2-Face Social: April 28, Cafe Citron, Dupont Circle

IxDA D.C. is throwing a Face-2-Face Social so we can meet in person for
drinks, socializing, and planning upcoming events based on user (you—the
community) research. As such, we will be gathering both qualitative and
quantitative data on the interests of the local IxDA & IA communities. We
might even craft some personas (using pictures from later in the evening) to
bring our archetypes to life.

So — come one, come all to this April IxDA D.C. social event.

Nokia, Nintendo, Netflix and E-Ink respond to the iPad

Sent to you by jtang via Google Reader: Nokia, Nintendo, Netflix and
E-Ink respond to the iPad via Engadget by Paul Miller on 1/30/10
We're sure just about every company on the map has an opinion on
Apple's new device, but a few big wigs have taken time out of their
busy schedules to weigh in on the device. These are their stories.

- Nokia's Mark Squires, Head of Social Media, was mainly confused by
Apple's statement that it's the biggest mobile device manufacturer,
surpassing Nokia in combined revenue on media players, phones and
