Many thanks to our Interaction 11 team, sponsors and attendees

As I prepared to leave Boulder this morning, I was struck by the enormity of what I had just experienced, and humbled by the energy, efforts, and spirit of individuals and organizations that brought it all to life. We're not just talking about the efforts seen over the past week; this is effort that spans the last 18 to 24 months.

To the conference chairs, Jon Kolko and MJ Broadbent, we thank you for your vision and for creating and leading such an amazing conference team that brought it to life.

usability & language: inconsistent terms

Hi All,

I am an all-round interaction designer and I am to busy to deal the language & usability part while improving big large existing products on small usability features (quickwins).

But I find it also rather important, but also so time consuming and I am not specialized in that kind of stuff. I am the only interaction designer and there is a documentalist making tutorials. He bumps very often against hazy language constructions. He is quite busy also.

What would you do?

Mind controller?

A company called Emotiv has a mind controller device. Think something and
that something becomes correlated to an action.
it isn't as easy as say the movie "Firefox" ("think in Russian!"), but it is
a start of calibrating brain waves to then say whenever this pattern occurs
do "this" action.

I doubt it is ready for firing missiles, yet.

CLARIFICATION ON Call for presenters (Austin, TX): Collaboration, Deliverables, and Communicating with Stakeholders of All Kinds -

Hello everyone,

I realized after sending this that my automatic signature makes this
misleading. This call is NOT for the Convio Summit, but rather for an
AustinUX-sponsored 1-evening event. It's for user experience
professionals in the Austin, TX area. I apologize for any confusion.

DARPA interaction opportunity


I thought I would pass along this RFP from DARPA for two reasons:

1) to invite discussion about what an interface for the proposed system
might look like and how it might behave;
2) hopefully help one of y'all get rich;

With this small ado, here's some introductory text:
