2007 Conferences

I have a limited training budget available, and I'm interested in both
the IA Summit (March) and the UPA Conference (June). The session
descriptions are up for IA and look outstanding, but UPA's won't be up
until late Feb! How do I decide? Which would have more recent,
non-published ideas and materials (my thinking is, I can always buy
related books if I can't attend).

Interaction design == web design

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself as this is my first posting to the list (I
have been subscribed for a few weeks now). We have been evolving our own
form of scenario- and persona-orientated design for the last year which has
been a big step-change in the way we build our software products. It's been
a fascinating process as we are strong practioners of eXtreme Programming
and our developers are very intelligent (and opinionated) C++ coders. It was
very much a case of "in-mates vs. wardens" prior and even during the
adoption of this process.

ADMIN: Please set your account to No mail delivery for holidays/vacations

Hi everyone,

Before you go away on vacation this summer PLEASE (I'm begging you), go to
the options/settings for this list and change your settings so that while
you are gone you do not receive e-mail.

Please follow the directions at http://listhelp.ixdg.org/

1. It is rude to send posters to the list your announcement. You are not the
only one and sometimes a single posting can generate another 10 emails for
the original poster.

2. Some people's auto-response don't listen to "reply-to" information and
just send messages tot he list.

except, it appears that it's actually used for helping to kill animals for hunting.

Weird, i had to dig through the internet to find this one.

[event] IxDA Boston UX Show & Tell

Do you have... - A nagging design problem? - An interesting new technique? - A crazy idea that needs validation?

Do you need... - A comfortable place to get friendly feedback? - Practice giving or receiving design critique? - Free pizza and drinks?

UX Show & Tell is a casual workshop that's all about the work. Show shortcuts. Ask what to annotate in a wireframe. Draft scenarios and user stories, and identify one from the other.

Best prototype simulation tool

Apologies if this has been discussed before.

I'm interested in introducing "interactivity"
into my mockups/prototypes without having to
code (or at least with very little coding).

What tools/techniques do most people use to accomplish this?
I've heard mention of Flash, but have no experience
with it.

Currently, I create mockups in Visio or Illustrator,
paste them into Powerpoint, and then move through
slides to "simulate" some of the interactivity of
the design.

Thanks for your feedback,

RE: [IxDA] Right-hand navigation

I wrote an article on this a while back - it's not a definitive answer but addresses the suggestion that right-hand navigation might be more efficient.

However, I have to say that 'people usually figure things out' is not good evidence in favour.
