Scent Design Activity At Interaction '11

Eight lucky people attending Interaction ’11 will get to visit a perfumery here in Boulder called the Essence Studio as part of the Interaction ’11 Friday afternoon conference activities. Laurie Lamar has done a great job of selecting a wide array of cool design-related activities to choose from. Since many of you are still deciding which activity to sign up for, I figured I’d explore this particular activity and share my experience.

A New Approach to Interaction Design

Hello IxDA:

This message is to encourage you to preview and purchase a book which
describes a new perspective on IxD. While IxD appears in most
universities as either an adjunct of HCI or as a Design skill in the
department of Mulitmedia/Art, this treatise argues IxD as a scientific
pursuit which sees no boundaries to the topical application of its
form, encompassing all of science.


"Interactivity is not merely the study of computational interfaces,
but observation and application of universal behavior with respect to
all systems, sciences and processes.

George Lakoff lecture in LA area, March 31

I just saw that George Lakoff will deliver the keynote address at a
conference on empathy held at Scripps College here in Claremont, CA
(far east end of Los Angeles county), on March 31 at 7 PM. It appears
to be free and open to the public.

Introducing design to a dev team for the firsttime

I'm surprised by the advice on this thread, especially yours here James.
Talk to the CEO? Why? As Martin explained he's been asked to be more active,
not to stage a coup, which is exactly how most of the people in line between
Martin and his CEO would see this sort of thing.

Worse, most of the other advice has advocated about 20 lbs. of process and
evangalism without asking if all that's needed is an ounce of results.

First and formost: Martin, if you are a self admitted wanna-be, the best
thing you can do is to advocate hiring a professional.

visual cues for thumbnails

Dear ID/As,

in his wonderful book "Tog on Software Design" Tog wrote:

"Thumbnails will replace generic-looking document icons, providing users with visual cues as to the nature of the material inside a container. Their appearance will go beyond today's thumbnails to reflect the amount of material they contain." [p. 196]

This is exactly what I like to do for OpenOffice.org/StarOffice thumbnails representing documents.

Design in India and other stuff about IxD education (was discuss Digest, Vol 39, Issue 23)


I'm aware of the IxD program at the NID in India.

The quesiton is, do you want a design school program or a comp sci program?

Since a big part of a traditional design school education requires some
sort of studio review, how do you do that remotely?
