[Job] Interaction Designer, Irvington NY, House Party, Inc., Full Time

Houseparty.com is a unique word-of-mouth in-home marketing platform
that organizes nation-wide events in partnership with Fortune 500
companies around TV shows, products and services.

Do you have an unhealthy obsession with the way things work? Do you
yell at websites and web applications that are poorly designed, like
some sports nuts yell at their television when their favorite team
messes up? Are you passionate about creating compelling, intuitive
online experiences?

I am searching for a suitable way to prototype a business application which will most likely be implemented either using Adobe Flex or Silverlight.

The application will probably use such functionalities like drag&drop, calendars to select a specfic date or a date range and several kinds or charts etc.

RE: [IxDA] ethics, training and HFI


Having worked with HFI and having been an integral team member at some point in my career, I am in complete agreement with Eric. HFI is a place where everyone breathes UX. They strive hard to bring UX to the industry.

I remember Eric mentioning in one of his talk to the staff - 'Whenever I go to any company in India, I meet people who have worked with HFI at some point. I am glad that we have been able to  educate people and spread Usability in the Industry'.

UX Brunch Baltimore!

Let's brunch together! Since Jeff Parks and I will be in Baltimore the weekend of 22-24 April for Rush (the band, Friday night) and the game (O's v. Yanks, Saturday night), we thought, "hey, let's get together & brunch on Saturday with some UXers in the area!"

Thus was UX Brunch Baltimore (#UXBrunchBalto on the Twitterz) born.

So, who's in? Who can arrange a place for us around 11:00 a.m.? Probably 15 folks? In walking distance perhaps from Aliceanna Street (between Fells Point & the Harbor)? Or a cab ride?

Glossary examples

Greetings all:

I am working on a simple glossary for a client, and want to do some
due diligence in generating ideas for it. I thought I'd check with
the list to see if you have examples of good glossaries that you like
and that work well.

Currently the glossary (small, approximately 100 terms) is broken
into context of use categories, with an alphabetical list following
each header. I would like to introduce a model that doesn't require
scrolling down to find the appropriate category, but not obscure the
total terms available.

Search select: after or before the search box?

Hi everyone!

I'm a Interaction Designer from a company called Midia Digital, at the city
of Curitiba, Brazil. This is the first time that I'm trying to write to this
list in English, so I hope all of you can understand what I'm saying.

My doubt is:

When we put a search box in a website with many different sections, which
one is better?

To put a select list before the search box (like Amazon does) or just put a
simple search box and organize the search results in tabs or filters
results (like Facebook does).

Talking like a user, I prefer the second option.

Is that an opinion or based on research? Is so, do you have a pointer to that research?

Interaction Design from a visual communication perspective

I have recently joined the IxDA Basecamp and made the following
announcement. Jeremy Yuille has convinced me to post it in the main
discussion list too for a wider input from the IxD community:

"Hi IxD community,

I’m Dave Wood a lecturer in Interaction Design from the UK. I’m based
in Liverpool and I’m engaged in part-time doctoral study at Edinburgh
College of Art on a practice-based PhD.

Between now and 2013 I will be researching interaction design from a
visual communication perspective.
