JOB: NYC: freelance IA, asap for 2+ months, UX-agency (JWG)

Hey IxDAers,

New Yorkers take pride in their city, and that includes its venerable
transportation system---a historic symbol of commerce, industry, connection,
and a rapidly changing and modernizing world.

Here's your chance to be a part of its history, and its future!

A well-known, midsized NYC-based consultancy is looking for an Information
Architect to come in ASAP for 2+ months to work on a redesign of Port
Authority sites, incuding airports, PATH trains, bridges and tunnels. There
are 4,000 pages to distill in to 15 templates.

Online or traditional training method is best?

In your profession, is self learning using online forumns and discussion groups and ebooks or attending traditional way of training helped more?

I used to read lots of books and actively using discussion forumns like IxDA, LinkedIn Groups and blogs of experts than attending traditional way of training. My last company I worked thinks that since I was not attended any training in their period, even though I was gaining good knowledge using web, that I am far behind in gaining new knowledge.

[IxDA] 12 Week Web Design Course - Chicago

Hi all,

I wanted to let folks know about a new course in Web Design in Chicago through Code Academy. This is a 12 week, intensive course that will cover design research, the basics of business and user modeling, iterative conceptual design and detailed design using a variety of tools including prototyping via HTML/CSS. The program starts January 9th and is held in person in Chicago.

Design classes will be held in the afternoon; there are development classes held in the morning, and we're structuring the program to allow for plenty of interaction between students of both.

What is the new metaphor?

With all of the talk lately of how devices like the iPad represent a democratization of computing and a casting off of the decades-old desktop metaphor in favor of a new one, the one question I keep asking myself is "what is the new metaphor?"  Is there even a real-life metaphor that can describe it? Any thoughts?
