Hey there,

I was wondering if people knew of any good books or articles about
aesthetics in design that might be good to get.

What I'm interested in more specifically is if there is a sense of
aesthetics around interaction. How can we as designers mold, play, conjure,
or otherwise control that aesthetic and harness it more purposefully than we

Seeking speakers [designers, urban planners, architects] who are working in community design...

During the Interaction 12 Local Leaders workshop in Dublin we are going to explore how we can design richer interaction design communities in our localities. It is the aim of many local groups to be more than event planning organizations. We hope to foster community and dialogue outside of events and serve as hubs for knowledge around our discipline. As such, we are looking for urban planners, Design Council members or other designers applying design thinking and methodologies in their communities to speak to the group about their approach to communitybuilding.

OptimalSort vs UserZoom - How do they compare?

We are looking for an online card sorting tool and have recently had the opportunity to try UserZoom at my company. We found that UserZoom had many drawbacks that, given the cost, makes it less than ideal for our purposes.

CMS recommendations

Can anyone recommend a good CMS with the following

-Site is built with MS SharePoint
-Need versioning, permissions etc.
-Site is personalized with dynamic content based on member (it's a
member health plan Web site)
-Site is largely transactional with little static content

I'm not sure if that's enough info. We've just started to look into CMS
after learning MS SharePoint couldn't deliver what we needed. We've
gotten a proposal from Interwoven so far. I don't have a lot of
experience with large scale CMS.
