IxD people of NYC, mid august

Hi People

Some colleges of mine (at my new job http://Ergonomidesign.se) are
coming to NYC on aug 17-20 and they wondered if I knew any interesting
IxD related people/companies to meet :) What better place to ask then
this list?

It's the manager of and two other guys from the IxD department who's
coming from the AP event in Washington that week.

Open to any kind of suggestions if you want to take a chance to meet
and talk to IxDers from one of Swedens largest design firms.

If so, please contact me of-list.

All the best!

Req: Reference on readability of centered vsleft-justified text

Paul,

Not exactly, but here is a reference to a website for a book that
does discuss text alignment.

buy-in, consensus,etc. (was RE: Powerpoint vs. "regular" slides)

Dave Heller wrote:

> "buy-in" is what I'm trying to achieve, not consensus

Excellent point. When I say "consensus", this is really what I mean.
I guess I'm accustomed to communicating with stakeholders, where
one facilitates buy-in by calling it "achieving consensus". :^)

I'm in no way in favor of design by committee, but am in favor of
bringing stakeholders into alignment with design decisions, via
whatever rhetorical means work best.

Your Application Looks Like Poo

I've been wrestling with this and I thought I would put it out there and gauge some opinions.

At 360|Flex I presented a session directed at application (Flex) developers aimed to inspire them to improve their application design skills.  It was part inspirational and part instructional as I went through basic design principles they should be aware of.

International Visits: Meet Susan Dray

Pam Migliore wrote to the ixdg list with a query (below) about international
customer visits. I've had the pleasure of knowing Susan Dray and David
Siegel of Dray & Associates for nearly twenty years. They are incredibly
experienced with international usability research and have been teaching
about it at CHI and UPA for as long as I know them.

Re: RSS browser (was: Flock?)

Rick,

A slightly different take on the RSS browser I use is an RSS news
ticker:

http://www.mesadynamics.com/tickershock.htm

This has an interface along the lines of what you're talking about -
new RSS items are added to a ticker that runs across the bottom of my
screen continuously. I can double-click any of them to go to the
original site and read the article in its native format. I think
this is really the true power of RSS - being able to aggregate titles
so you can determine what is worth spending more time on.

Some form fun, to lighten the mood

This one cracks me up.

Choose Yes for all the three radio button options, then check each of the
checkboxes that appear as a result. (No need to type anything.) Have fun!
