Last call: IxDA Board of Directors call for applications

When I first discovered IxDA several years ago, I knew early on that I
had found a professional home for myself. At first, that meant
knowing there was a group of people out there who shared my passion
for all things Interaction Design. Then lurking turned into planning
and attending IxDA local events. Then came the conference, and now the

Why mention this?

It was in my increased involvement that I realized the impact IxDA
affiliation was having not only on my own personal practice but also
on the community itself.

LifeRay Enterprise Portal UX Flexibility?

Anyone have any experience working with LifeRay for an enterprise portal solution--particularly interested in the UX impact point of view? I've been tasked with devising an enterprise portal solution for a media company and need to assess the pros/cons of going with an out-of-the-box versus custom solution.

Other recommendations for Portal designs always welcome.

Dear CEO:


Recently there have been a number of threads about how to present the
argument for UX design to a company. In response I have put together the
following outline for a presentation. What improvements can you add?

Is there an interactive newspaper (late and technical)

Getting technical:
A newspaper - the paper one - has an editorial board, ombudsman, and staff
writers. This organization matters like a design team structure matters -
it determines the work they do and what they're capable of.
NYTimes and other traditional papers preserve this staff and publish online
with minor adjustments to the traditional format.
Google News is a news source, not a newspaper.
The Kansas paper mentioned before, Lawrence Journal-World at www.ljworld.com,
is a newer example that seems to have a board and writers that are local.

The "interaction" part of interaction design

I've noticed something over the years, and I'm curious about others'

Some of us refer to ourselves as "interaction designers", but very often, I
see deliverables for app designs that forget all about the "interaction".

For example, I recently saw design deliverables from a well-known firm in
which the designer figured out what needed to go into the app (and what
didn't), worked out the sitemap, and then laid everything out in a sequence
of wireframes.
