The science behind interaction design in my MS was in the realm of

Art or (Rocket) Science

Also in B&A, this article caught my eye
http://www.boxesandarrows.com/view/design-is-rocket
especially this phrase
"In some ways, Interaction Design the practice is a field that seems
obsessed with process over product. Experience has taught me that if
overall the team lacks creative and artistic skills, the product is
doomed to become unfriendly or inelegant. "

I'm curious if you consider yourselves artist/craftsmen or more
scientist-practitioners

Do you recommend Expression Blend?

Hi,

We're starting an implementation project for a Windows application
that we've already designed (form, content and behavior is done). The
design involves some eye-candy and transitions that would be trivial
to implement with WPF, but not so trivial with Windows Forms.

To help the coders concentrate on coding, were considering to re-draw
our Photoshop+OmniGraffle originals with the shining new MS Expression
Designer+Blend toolset, hoping that the output is directly useful WPF/
XAML/C# input for Visual Studio.

OT: Help remembering the name of a site

A few months ago a site popped up that was about getting design firms to
commit to talking to clients about sustainability in design and improving
their methods and such. Anyone remember the name of the campaign?
It started with the word "designer", I think. Like "Designer's Creed", but
that's not it.

Thanks!

"The Brain" and "MindManager" and Post-it notes

Mind mapping tools

I wonder if anyone used the low tech approach: mind mapping,
brainstorming and categorizing with Post-it notes. How does it compare
to the software?

On positive side Post-it notes seem to be more collaborative, to have
lower participation threshold by virtue of being low tech (similar to
paper prototypes) and because people get a chance to physically move
around, play with their hands while pasting notes on white board. Is
this correct assumption about ease of collaboration?

The setbacks I see: 1. No remote participation, 2. Archiving results
for reference and 3.

Re: [IxDA] Why is Drupal is a Good Choice for a Community Website?

Finding the right content management system is always a difficult challenge. None of them are perfect. Finding a decent open source CMS can be even more challenging because they're being produced voluntarily by people whose main enjoyment is programming, not user experience. I've been working with Plone for over a year now and I can't image Drupal being any worse. And since IxDA has essentially no budget, open source is the natural choice. So while Drupal may not be perfect, is there a better open source solution? I doubt it.

Re: "Intuitive" designs can be cumbersome

This is a great comment and it is funny that I just wrote about something
very similar on my (new) blog this morning (see
http://dubfuture.blogspot.com/). I was complaining about how Microsoft chose
not to put a pen-centric UI on the TabletPC and instead chose a very
incremental change over the standard desktop GUI.
