Call for volunteers: writers need for IxDA web site--immediate

Hello all,

I'm looking for one or two volunteers to help write copy for a new version
of the IxDA website. We need a a couple of people who are available
immediately, and who can crank out excellent English-language prose.

The project starts NOW, and is likely to continue for just a week or so.

If you can help (or if you would just like a few more details to help you
decide) please send me an email. Please do not reply to the list.

FW: ADMIN: Topics (was RE: Issues raised at London meet)

hey there folks,

sorry I didn't jump on this earlier today. I should have. The topics that
david raised are all good ones.
If the topics were meant to be specific to the londoners I suggest that the
people who led the london discussion have another less formal face 2 face as
follow up for IxDers who are interested in meeting again in London to talk
about those issues.

If the topic was meant for a wider international discussion, this list is
not the appropriate place for this discussion.

In-house design teams - what do you call yourselves?

I'm looking for ideas on what an in-house interactive/interaction/web design team should be called within a larger design group at a large (conservative) corporation. The designers will handle visual design, consult on interaction design best practices for applications, manage online campaigns, etc -- broad enough that I'm not sure that web design/interactive design/new media design really fit, but something like "Media Technology" or similar isn't right either. 

Any thoughts? 

thank you!

User Survey to get feedback

I was thinking about using our customer survey to get information on UX issues and possibly identify where applications are stronger or weaker than competitors. I have taken a number of surveys but never created any so if anyone has any advice I greatly appreciate it.

you hit the wrong app?

Bring your OLPC XO laptops to Interaction08!

I just got my new OLPC XO laptop as part of their Buy 1 Get 1
program. I wanted to let my friends and colleagues know about this
great effort techno-charitable initiative (though I'm sure many, if
not most of you are already familiar with it).

Perhaps like me you've been following news stories about the One
Laptop Per Child initiative that was started by M.I.T. Media Lab's
founder, Nicholas Negroponte. The laptop they've produced was
designed by fuseproject in collaboration with Design Continuum.
Pentagram also did some of the design.

FW: Fitt's Law and such [was: Mac OS X...]

Correction 1:

I should say "heart of the ^^current implementation^^ of the dock-locked trash."

I can see a solution in actually anchoring the trash-targeted end of the dock. That plus always treating the zone of the fully
'natural-sized' trash as it's active zone (even if the visual extent is smaller) might remove the necessity for the extra subgoal.

The same accomodation is available for the desktop trash -- having extent that extends to the edge of the screen even if located a
short distance from it.

I'm sure there'll be a second correction.
