Hi y'all,

a limited number of available registrations left. We're reserving a
dozen or so for students and the remaining 50 for professionals. We
expect these to be sold quickly and the conference to sell out by mid-
January *at the latest*.

Less talking, more doing (was: Thoughts on Alan Cooper's Keynote)

Well put Scott. The "us vs. them" grandstanding and vacuous posturing
that has gone on in this thread is completely at odds with the
rootedness in facts and empathy that is supposed to be a cornerstone
of this field.

On a more general note, I'd like to point the list to a blog post I
just came across this morning.

Redesigning the milk jug

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/30/business/30milk.html (Free
registration required)

Interesting article on a redesign of the common milk jug, its
environmental impact, and the reaction of the consumer.

I'm again reminded that change management is a fundamental part of
Interaction Design.

article on interactive identity

I wrote an article on the future of Corporate Design and how this
discipline relates to Enterprise IT, Intranet Design, Software User

Workplace.

Since my thoughts on those topics are very much inspired by some
discussions on this list, please let me know what you think.

Best UI you ever used

Hi everyone,

today I happened to find a thread on UXExchange titled "The best UI you have ever used...?"

While the thread isn't as insightful as I hoped, I thought to throw that question at you guys. Guess we agree that this is mostly about sentiment and not quite measurable :-)

Since we want to maybe learn something, it would be nice to submit some rationale, too. And to further narrow it down, please stick to web-based UIs.
