Design For Mobile conference, April 20-22, Early Bird ends March 7

In late 2007, we got tired of all the conferences focusing on mobile
user experience being in Europe. Usually London. Since more and more
there's really great mobile design work going on in North America, we
decided to make a new conference. And in 2008 it was terrific.

The 2009 conference is approaching, with topics ranging from academic
to theoretical to incredibly practical, from user research to
implementation.

IxDA Curriculum (Was: Importance of MastersDegree for IxD Professionals)

After reading the thread on higher education, I went to the HFES.org
website to find a local University and inquire about their Human Factors
program.

I thought you might be interested in the response I received from the
professor:

I think it is a great idea to pursue an advanced HF degree. Our program
was a very good one and would have been a good fit for you. But because
of the state budget cuts, FIU has decided to terminate our entire
department. So the program will not exist after next year.

Hi,

We host monthly discussions on design and development about the web
industry in Toronto.

I'm looking for a few local Interaction Designers who would be willing
to participate in an informal debate about the benefits of their
techniques.

This debate is inspired by this article:

Godigi or other mobile usability testing solutions

Does anyone have any experience with Godigi?  We received a solicitation email from them.

It looks like they sell a camera for doing usability tests on mobile devices -- has anyone used it?  Or any other products or services from them?

Folks here were wondering about compatibility of client-side data storage

Product "training" and orientation: anything surprising/interesting?

Looking for some inspiration about how to orient people to a UI in a
novel way. Of course, no training should be required, but there's some
legal reasons why we need to do it for a project. Anyone seen any cool
vids/demos/tutorial modes out there lately I could check out?

Job - seeking designer to help with data display

Hi -

I am looking for someone for the following job. I think it will be
pretty fun (I’m a jealous that I don’t have time to do all the work
myself, but will be working with the designer).
