Designing experiences which are delightful and magical

I've put some thinking into what principles might guide the design of delightful magical experiences. I've used lots of examples of products which are successful and some which are not. 

We'd love to hear how other practitioners design for this.

Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] IxDA's new job board is live

I for one think this is a great idea.  One of the reasons I only intermittently read this list is the high volume of posts, and jobs make up a big part of the noise.  It's not that I'm not interested in jobs, but I would much rather go to a dedicated job board to seek them.  The closer this list stays to its core purpose (dare I say... a forum for conversations about interaction design?), the more value it delivers in my book.

Any UX Community in Milwaukee Area

Hi all,

I recently moved to Milwaukee. I would love to network with local UX people and contribute to the community. Is there an IxDA or UPA Milwaukee chapter? Where do I find events and activities information?

Information Workplace/Enterprise Workplace User Data?

We're beginning to craft a strategy to move our communications/self-service
Intranet portal into more of an Information Workplace model. We expect to
spend several years on this strategy, evolving over time.

Any guidelines/design patterns etc.. on when a downloadable format ( such as pdf/word/ppt) is appropriate compared to creating a webpage?

Hi everyone,

I would appreciate if anyone could point to me to any guidelines /
design patterns or some source on when a downloadable format ( such as
pdf / word /ppt) is a better option compared to creating a webpage.

For example, a website that talks about policies which are large
documents , it would be best if people are able to download the policy
and review it.

Or if its about a particular process, it would be best if they are
able to download the process and use the printed document to reference
while doing the process.

Any help you could provide will be much appreciated.

Thank You

# of Designers... on the planet.

Where can I find statistics on the global and US population of
Designers.. from architects to product designers to interaction
designers, etc? An intelligent guess maybe the 'answer'. Can anyone
lead me in the right direction? How many people in the world are
involved in some aspect of Design (almost everyone by definition, but
I'm looking for active professionals)? Statistics about the global
population of engineering-centric folks would be equally useful.

Expressing levels of achievement/reputation (eBay stars)

We all know eBay stars - different stars denote accumulated reputation
or "feedback score".

I like Ebay's colored star icon system because it's more elegant
and more subtle than, say, a "five star" hotel/restaurant system.
It's more like a karate belt color ladder.

But can levels be expressed in yet subtler ways? What other graphic
elements can be used?
