Using eye tracking to determine whether person needs more information.

Hi out there,

I am not sure whether this is the right forum, so sorry in advance if
not. But I saw some questions regarding eye tracking so I hope you
could help me. - BTW do you know forums that are completely dedicated
to eye tracking?

Okay, here is my challenge:

I am working since two years with eye tracking in the context of
dialogue systems. Currently I try to build a system which displays
information for several objects (e.g.

SVA v. Bentley

Hi all,

Does anyone have any thoughts on SVA's Interaction Design program v. Bentley's Human Factors in Information Design program?

For background: I've got a few years' experience as a project / product manager, and want to get more into hands-on UX work, and be able to design products and digital services from the ground up (I'm not a developer, though I did study computer science way back in college).

looking for: innovative gym/trainer sites

I'm looking for innovative uses of web2.0/IxD functionality on websites of
fitness gyms and personal trainers .. a scan through most of the local gyms
turned up bupkis, a truly sad collection of brochureware.

So, I'm casting my net wider - have you seen or used a website for a fitness
gym or personal trainer that leverages the rich possibilities of modern IxD
functionality, and/or web2.0 community driven content?

Or am I hoping for too much from a bunch of jocks ;-)

You can contact me at derekwchan (at) gmail (dot) com.

Is there an interactive newspaper (late and technical)

Getting technical:
A newspaper - the paper one - has an editorial board, ombudsman, and staff
writers. This organization matters like a design team structure matters -
it determines the work they do and what they're capable of.
NYTimes and other traditional papers preserve this staff and publish online
with minor adjustments to the traditional format.
Google News is a news source, not a newspaper.
The Kansas paper mentioned before, Lawrence Journal-World at www.ljworld.com,
is a newer example that seems to have a board and writers that are local.

Copy is design, on Tumblr

Hey all, I'm the co-author of the "Translation is UX" manifesto and related article on ALA. I'm also member of IxDA Lyon (France).

I'm pleased to announce the launch of a new project: CopyIsDesign.com. This Tumblr is meant to illustrate the role copy plays in the user experience, through the sharing of examples of great/bad copy and translated copy.

Need to learn Graphic Design -- Do something about it!

@robfay posted this link on Twitter and I think this list of free tutorials
should be required for all y'all who feel you don't need Graphic Design
Stuff. YES! at the end they get into areas that you should probably already
know (well my point is you should prob already know all of it). But with
lessons on type, grids and color it is really great. I think what is missing
is more than grids in creating compositions, but grids is a great start!

An inconvenient truth: CHI is not sustainable

since the paper mentioned below is "Interaction Design" based, I
thought I would pass it along here. I hope the paper will be made
public so we can have a better discussion, but in the meantime, what
are the issues of sustainability for our community?

* Work environment
* What is unsustainable about software? digital products?

Most sustainability talk is about the physical world.

[cfp] DIS2006 Game Design Workshop

2006 DIS (Designing Interactive Systems) Workshop

On the Process of Game Design

25 June 2006

Call for Participation

The game design process is largely driven by practice; while some work
has been done to address theoretical foundations for game design, this
work has been done only in academia. These two communities rarely come
together to discuss their perspectives on design theories or processes.
As a result, both communities work in isolation.
