Bill Moggridge talk at Ideo tonight

Hi All,

I saw a nice talk by Bill Moggridge at Ideo in Palo Alto this evening where
he presented some parts of his new book, "Designing Interactions". There is
a nice web companion to the book at:

The video interviews are great. Check out his interview with Bill Verplank.
I did not know that Moggridge and Verplank were the originators of the name
"interaction design" for what we do.

Sorting buttons... left-to-right, top-to-bottom

IMHO it's more about the spacing between the buttons than about the
arrangement. I would probably prefer the left-to-right version, but
in both cases you should have more space between the columns or rows
depending on which arrangement you choose.

Sketching & Prototyping Workshop IA Summit March 19th [PLUG]

Times running out and space is limited. So, you better sign up while
you can still get in.

Leah Buley of Adaptive Path and I are running a full day workshop at
the IA Summit on sketching and prototyping—you won't want to miss it.
It's the first time we've done this workshop together, but previous
versions of her sketching workshop and my prototyping workshops have
sold out. Now, we're bringing the best of both worlds together for the
first time.

What are you waiting for?

IxDA 2006 Board Retreat: Report to Our Membership

IxDA 2006 Board Retreat: Report to Our Membership

Dear Members of IxDA,

The IxDA Board and I have recently held our annual Board Retreat, and
I am very excited by the results! As you may have noticed, while
several of our local organizations (NYC, Portland, Sweden, and Pune,
to name a few) have been very active, IxDA global leadership has been
somewhat muted for the past 6-8 months.

(Apologies if you receive more than one of these.)

Some of you did a card sort for me a couple of months back. The results have been used in an article that is currently with the editor, so hopefully it will be available early next year.

re: chart/table design reference

Like in other post, Show me the number by Stephen Few is ok - little more practical and easier to read than Tufte's books. But very few examples and tips for integrating it with an interactive applicatons.....Another good resource is "chart/table" section in SAP's design guild website.

good luck.

Card Sorting with Nested Groups

We're working on the next release of our card sorting analysis software, SynCaps V3 and need a few sites to try out the new 'nested groups' feature on face-to-face, paper-based projects. This allows the kind of hierarchical sorting that many want to do but that few tools support, for example:

Vegetables (group level 1)
-Root Vegetables (group level 2)
--Potatoes (group level 3)
---White Potatoes (item)
---Sweet Potatoes (item)

and so on.
