First IxDA F2F in Stockholm

We had our first face to face meet in Stockholm on the 17th and it
turned out to be quite successful. About 20 people turned up and we
had a great exchange of ideas and experiences.

The place (http://ag925.se) was just right for the event with a nice
atmosphere so we'll continue to go there.

Atlanta needs a local IxDA group!

I think it's time to set up a local Atlanta IxDA group! That's
especially true since there's a lot of great work going on in Atlanta,
and the 2008 IxDA conference taking place in (relatively) nearby

We already have a related group[1] that started out with an IA
orientation, but it really covers a range of UX disciplines. Whether
you're interested in that, or you want to set up a separate IxDA
Atlanta group, speak out, and we'll see where interest takes us.

I am curious as to what you perceive to be the differences between the
following phrases:

Interaction Design
User Experience Design
Information Architecture (Design?)

There must be a lot of overlap in what these 3 phrases describe. But what
are some of the differences between them?

Many thanks,

UML and Developers

*Note - I am new to this forum. If you feel this topic is not appropriate
to post, just let me know. *

We have been tasked with documenting the requirements for our current legacy
software system, in sufficient detail that a vendor (preferably several
vendors) will be able to give reasonably accurate bids in response to our
Request for Proposals. The better job we do, the more and better (i.e.
lower) bids we will receive.

I'm mostly concerned with the functional requirements.

looking for examples of tag hierarchies or nested tags

I am looking for examples of web applications or site that use
hierarchical tags or nested tags. For example, I've found that
delicious.com has "tag bundles" which lets the user group related
tags and see all items tagged with anything in that bundle.

Are there other examples you know of that let the user build and use
tags within tags?

...and don't forget to laugh

While in pursuit of the simple, the
clear, the intuitive, the new, I'd like to give whimsy, surprise, and um, the warm embrace of stupidity, their due.

No matter the domain, – virtual or tangible, high tech or high touch,
interfaces or environments, – innovative thinking is accompanied by the opportunity to twist toward one of four emotional
outcomes: the aha! (scientific knowing),
the ah! (aesthetic experience), the ha ha! (humorous relief) and the duh? (what
I’ll call “blessed stupidity”).

Mocking up applications for the iPhone

Hi everyone,

I'm a student currently learning about Interaction Design, on Exchange from Canada in Germany. A group that I am working with is developing an iPhone application aimed at helping cancer patients organize a wide variety of tasks and self-care needs that come with the disease. I have worked on projects with the iPhone before, as an intern and developer. I don't have any experience though mocking up the application on the iPhone, without going through the process of actually building it.
