[EVENT] New Mexico Local Group Meetup - 12/9/08 5:30pm

Hi All,

After a successful first meeting of New Mexico IxDA, we decided to
have another meetup on December 9th at 5:30pm at Chama River Brewing
(http://www.chamariverbrewery.com/). We wanted to meet before the
madness of the upcoming holidays and also while we have some forward
momentum. Hope to see you there.

As always you can find us on the web at: http://groups.google.com/

Foci of User Experience - comments please

Hi IxD folks, some of you (Dave) may have seen the latest "defining IA"
thread on the IAI list and without wanting to encourage the kind of chaos
that erupted there i'd love to reach out to get your perspective on
something I created to try and distinguish disciplines from roles within UX.

There are a few comments/discussions on it on the post so feel free to junk
that up rather than your forum!

Diagramming asynchronous apps: wireframe storyboard

I'm curious for feedback. I diagrammed change on a part of the page in
parallel series over time:

I'm trying to communicate the design as well as document for future
generations. It's a rough draft, but does it succeed? Almost?

Research Into Service Design Touchpoints

I am working on developing tools to assist with touchpoint innovation for the design of services. It seems strange, but the touchpoint term has become central to service design and I can't find much research on the area at all. Can anyone help me?

I am looking for academic research, the kind that is to be found at conferences, in journals and books without pictures. Anything referring to, analysing, mapping, discussing, designing or measuring touchpoints is of interest.

Are there user experience design guidelines for Android application? I was looking on the android developer site and didn't find any.

Unbidden dialog boxes [Was & also is Access points for context sensitive help]

Hi Alysander

Thanks for your reply. This is an interesting topic--to us anyway. :-) Once
upon a time, long ago, I designed a help authoring and delivery system for
the Mac that I wanted to bring to market. But then I went to work for Apple
where Apple Guide was just starting up and ended up contributing to that
design. Also, I was a tech writer before I became an interaction designer
and authored help systems, among other things.

MessageDo I defend IDSA or Icograda? Not necessarily, but I support every honest attempt to strengthen the voice of design.

Would I want to have someone else speak for me? Yes, if they among other things constitute a powerful (lobbying) force to develop, educate about and promote the importance of design to relevant stakeholders. No, if they presume to speak for the discipline I adhere to, interaction design, without having the required competence to do so, and going counter to my interests.

[Event] Seattle Book Club, 29 July, 6:00pm

Hello from the Seattle local chapter. I'm organizing a book club
meeting/discussion next month. If you are planning on coming please
let me know.

The Book:
Designing for the Digital Age (Kim Goodwin) - Chapters 1 -11 (Getting
Started, Research, and Modeling).
It's pretty thick so we'll break it down into two sessions or maybe
more. I think the book is a lot of food for thought/discussion so
let's just see how far we get in this meeting.
