[Event] Call for Particpation: Prototype Sprint in Berlin on Sunday!

Hi! we want to build a game that helps people learn from each other as they explore how to build collaborative and resilient futures. On Sunday August 28 we're hosting a prototype sprint to explore these ideas and we'd like you to help us out. We're looking for educational and social futurists, game designers, developers and interaction designers who are interested in collaborating on game concepts that will make it easier to shape our lives and learn from each other.

research: music and memory

Marcos Weskamp and I are currently working on a project that links
music and memory, at Interaction Design Institute Ivrea. At this point
we are collecting data to populate the database that will be used for
the visualization.

In a form we have put online we ask you to mention a specific song that
you relate to a memory. Do you have a specific song that reminds you of
your first girlfriend; that cool wedding of your best friend; a summer
vacation? We are sure that you can find plenty examples! You can even
sketch out your memory, among other things!

What is a Landing Page?

> I'm curious what your feelings are regarding what a landing page is

I think Wikipedia's somehow right when defining a "landing page",
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landing_page>. (Skipping my own thoughts
for now.)

Some problems with Wikipedia's iD

I thought this would be a good forum to bring up some interaction
design problems with Wikipedia.

These are some of the problems I found as an active contributor who
also happens to be an interaction designer.

1. Wikipedia shows only the last edit of an article in the watch list.
This leaves the writer no clue of the edits that took place from
his/her base lined version. (Base lined version will generally be the
user's last edit on the article.).

Disability Discrimination Act and AJAX

Hi All,Can anyone shed some light on whether using AJAX makes a website non
compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act? I know there would be
violations using some controls of Ajax and not in others, but is there some
study/information on this somewhere (about which controls are non compliant
etc)? Would appreciate any help on this topic..
