A Comprehensive Design Scientist

There's an entertaining article about Buckminster Fuller, who thought
of himself as a "comprehensive, anticipatory design scientist" rather
than an inventor, in this week's New Yorker magazine:

Ungraceful degradation of HTML emails and conversion rates.

Hi everyone,

I'm currently doing a bit of desk research on HTML email, and I've been
really unimpressed with how many sites use templates that degrade very
ungracefully when images are turned off. I'm wondering if anyone has any
stats on the proportion of users who have images turned off by default, or
any stats on the proportion of users who click "display images below" (etc)
to reveal them.

What I'm really interested in is the impact on conversion rates.

Writing a new book on Service Design

Hi folks - Lou Rosenfeld tried to post this a couple of times, but it seems something is going awry with the list, so I'm doing it on his behalf.

Myself, Ben Reason and Lavrans Løvlie are writing a book on Service Design for Rosenfeld Media. Below is Lou's announcement text, but I'd like to add a few IxDA list specific comments/requests first.

Re: Designer mobility to management (was ixd curriculum)

Hi Prady,

Interesting post. I wonder whether a correlation between variables is being mistaken for a causal relationship between them?

For the sake of discussion, let's take as true your perception about the negative correlation between design education and movement into management. A design education background is not likely a cause for comparatively low rates of migration into management (not likely to "handicap" one).
