colleagues to submit proposals for next year's CHI conference. We

would like to have a strong New England representation at CHI 2009 in

Boston so if you have any ideas and want to kick them around, you can

Names are Important (was Wood gatherers...)

Good grief! I mean, really?!?

We are not cave people. We don't (only ;) ) communicate with grunts and
chest beating. We have words. Words are one of the most valuable things we
have as humans. They have real meaning. They build up language, which is
at the heart of everything else we build and often at the heart of our
relationships and just generally how we relate to that which is outside

Discussing naming is inextricably intertwined with discussing the underlying
concepts, which are the important bits and what people get worked up over.
Titles are names.

Re: [IxDA] UX résumés- what does yours look like?

Wow. This is a timely discussion as I spent most of the week considering how to sell myself and how to re-write my resume to make it easier to read and make it more appealing.

I’ve done a reasonable amount of hiring in the last few years and I used this experience as a driver for my reworking. When you receive a stack of 20+ resumés you have to sort through them quickly, and for me if I couldn’t quickly see that someone “gets” UX then it was quickly in the out pile. Then I looked for a balance of skills that I/we needed, e.g.

[EVENT Recap] - Chicago - UXsears, multichannel changes in a large organization

It was a big night; easily the most attended event to date. There
wasn't even any food remaining at the conclusion of the event.

Andrew Daniel's presentation was compendious and informative. UXsears
has encountered and tackled significant challenges in the reformation
of an iconic American retailer.

method for keeping track of employee UI suggestions?

Hi - I'm at a new organization, and am trying to develop a method for
allowing employees to make specific suggestions about how the usability of
our software products can be improved. We have about a dozen software
products that are either web-based or palm based.

I'm considering either a wiki, or a tracking system like fogBugz. I expect
that some users will want to post screenshots to explain their points, so
the system should allow for that.

Does anyone currently make use of such a system?

Carousel reference implementations?

Does anyone have pointers to reference implementations for carousels
which deal with acceleration physics?

On a more general note, are there reference implementations available
for "standard" gestures (pinch, stretch, twist, etc)? I would hate
to have to reinvent the, um, carousel...
