R: Good examples of airlines websites

Hi Andrea,

not sure if you're responsible for the web check-in as well, but last
time I tried to use it I ended up with this:


(miscalculation of flight time by not taking into account timezone
differences & next-day arrival)

More of a programming issue than a design flaw, although maybe the
design spec should explicitly say: Time fields SHALL NOT display
negative times :)

Design professional getting an MBA?

Hi all,

Since getting out of college a couple years ago, I have been employed as
an interaction designer at a software company. I really love the work,
it's what I want to be doing for years to come, however I have noticed
(as many people have discussed on this board numerous times) a
disconnect between the business, development and design. Lately, I have
been thinking about applying to business school, hopefully to gain
perspective and help address this gap between all parties.

I would like to get any of your opinions on whether this move would be
successful or not.

research: music and memory

Marcos Weskamp and I are currently working on a project that links
music and memory, at Interaction Design Institute Ivrea. At this point
we are collecting data to populate the database that will be used for
the visualization.

In a form we have put online we ask you to mention a specific song that
you relate to a memory. Do you have a specific song that reminds you of
your first girlfriend; that cool wedding of your best friend; a summer
vacation? We are sure that you can find plenty examples! You can even
sketch out your memory, among other things!
