[EVENT] SHiFT Conference in Lisbon - 15 to 17 Oct

I'm currently one of the head leaders for a tech conference taking place in
Lisbon, Portugal that I think will be of interest to most of you here on the
IxDA discussion list, so I took the liberty to post some details about it:

Lisbon (Portugal) is welcoming this October 15 to 17 the second edition of
the SHiFT International Tech Conference (www.shift.pt). SHiFT stands for
Social and Human Ideas For Technology and as the name implies we are going
to discuss a wide range of issues related to how technology is changing our
everyday lives.

Best conference?

It's budget time again!! I get to pick one conference. In your expert
opinion, which conference will be the best to attend next year? I am an
interaction designer/ user interface designer. I have attended the Nielsen
Usability conference for the past 2 years, but I'm wondering if CHI 2007
would be a better fit.

What is Graphic Design?

Here's a refreshing approach. Turns out it's possible to address
definitions without bitter discussion threads. Who knew? :-)

people's thoughts on a walled community for designers/developers?

I recently came across an ad for http://mintpages.net/ which presents itself
as "A private community for forward thinking designers and developers to
engage in discussions of design and development related topics."

You need to tell some anonymous person how great you are before they'll let
you in. Anyone a member? Do you have a secret handshake? What are the
initiation rights like? Needless to say..

Hi fab folks -

Straw poll of the day:
What are your favorite (and least favorite) error messages/error
handling scenarios for our oh-so-beloved use case, "user enters
incorrect password"?

Yours curiously,

A New Approach to Interaction Design

Hello IxDA:

This message is to encourage you to preview and purchase a book which
describes a new perspective on IxD. While IxD appears in most
universities as either an adjunct of HCI or as a Design skill in the
department of Mulitmedia/Art, this treatise argues IxD as a scientific
pursuit which sees no boundaries to the topical application of its
form, encompassing all of science.


"Interactivity is not merely the study of computational interfaces,
but observation and application of universal behavior with respect to
all systems, sciences and processes.

Prototypes as documentation?

Are others finding themselves in the quandry that was expressed in a recent
article on B&A about how wireframes have become the final source of
documentation for design, engineering, and quality assurance?

Here's the link:

I know I am facing this problem.

How are people dealing w/ this? What do people think of Liz's solution?
