IxDA Atlanta Social--Billiards & Beer--Oct. 14

Good games don't just happen. Somewhere, sometime, someone had to
fine-tune the rules and constraints that make our favorite games
rewarding, whether it's chess, football, or (in our case this month)
billiards.

Join us at Gordon Biersch in Buckhead to discuss what makes a good
game, and how game design principles can be applied to interaction
design. Appreciate classic versions of billiards or try out your own
rules... it's up to you.

Looking for great company career sites

Hello everyone,
I'm in the process of redesigning a career site and I'm just getting
into the research, but I wondered if you all had any career sites that
just really impressed you that you'd be willing to share. By the way,
these would be the career section on a company's site, not job search
sites like monster or dice or what have you.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

this feels like a very interesting resource. I didn't dive too deep, but the
idea and design style intrigue me.

improvement request :: add jobs mailing list

I suggest ixda.org mailing lists be separated in 2: "jobs" and "design".

...because most job offers don't even specify location (in the title); and some people are not currently looking for a job... among many other reasons.

Thanks

How to define heuristics specific to a system ?

Hi,

 

We are currently working on complex systems unificating various interfaces. Various modules (physical and interfaces) are interacting together, like in a train, car or plane.

Each module thus have its own goals and dedicated tasks.

To reproduce our analysis and communicate comparable results we would like to develop heuristics grids specific to each sub system, based on Nielsen's and Bastien&Scapin's ones, but including task oriented criterias.

Lotus Notes S*cks! ... I know that is almostubiquitous, but here is definitive proof!

I submit http://www.ok-cancel.com/comic/11.html

At CHI2004, Tom ran into some people who work on Notes and they told
him what a huge fan of OK/Cancel they were. Tom's response,

"hey, that's cool ... ... uh, sorry we implied you guys don't do
anything"
