New local group in Porto Alegre / Brazil

Is there anyone around living in Porto Alegre interested in joining a local group? The idea would be gathering people interested in learning together, sharing experiences and certainly meeting at some local pub from time to time J

*India’s 4th International conference on UX & Design
Designing Customer Experience for Emerging Markets & Beyond...**


*Pre-Conference Event**
*Call for Papers for USID 2010**

Life, culture, and context of use for end users in the emerging markets are
different to users in markets such as Europe and America. Therefore it is
not necessary that the product which is successful in other parts of the
world will also be successful in the markets of emerging economies.

A New Approach to Interaction Design

Hello IxDA:

This message is to encourage you to preview and purchase a book which
describes a new perspective on IxD. While IxD appears in most
universities as either an adjunct of HCI or as a Design skill in the
department of Mulitmedia/Art, this treatise argues IxD as a scientific
pursuit which sees no boundaries to the topical application of its
form, encompassing all of science.


"Interactivity is not merely the study of computational interfaces,
but observation and application of universal behavior with respect to
all systems, sciences and processes.

Our friends at Microsoft have a new product designed specifically for
interaction designers and IAs. It's called Sketchflow (part of the Blend 3
product), and it enables the sort of rapid and robust prototyping that is a
key part of what many of us do on a daily basis.

A quick guide to readings

Note: I posted this to my blog (which is rarely read ;-), but thought
it might make a good starting point of discussion for the group. Many
of the posters here seem to be searching for references, short cuts
to expertise and experience, and general good insight. - Mark Schraad

A quick guide to readings

I have spent a great deal of time reading in the last few years. Much
of it wasted. It occurs to me that there are some patterns observed
that may be worth sharing.
