How do post a new discussion on the ixda.org

Sorry about that, what I meant was, How do post a new discussion on
the ixda.org. If it turns out that I can't, here it is.
I know of a recruiter in Austin, TX looking of IxDs.

Have you heard of "Three-in-One User Study" for Focused Collaboration?

the latest issue of the International Journal of Design
(http://www.ijdesign.org/) has this interesting article that
introduces a human-centered design approach -- the Three-in-One User
Study -- which applies a set of methods to speed up and focus on the
design process.

Physical Interaction Design

I was interested in Lisa deBettencourt's comments about their (Bose's)
design's being rendered in steel plastic etc.
Here's a thought: how about trying to design a generic physical "front end"
that can be dynamically updated. Such a system would enable you to make
changes as and if needed, plus enable your users to customize (and
personalize) their physical interfaces if they like. This issue is obviously
fraught with many problems, but can also be an interesting, maybe even an
exciting innovation for the physical interface world.

testing customers vs. internal... people...

Hi there,

I work for a fortune 500 company that owns many brands. For this one
particular one, we are building a consumer portal that will allow them to
pay for their services online and see their next scheduled service time. At
first release they can't do much more than that. Getting any usability
testing done here is like pulling teeth - nobody ever wants to pay a dime
for it and deadlines never are allowed to have much time for it.
