IxD event at 10th National Design Awards

Just received information on this event but it looks interesting hosted the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and a part of the 10th Annual National Design Awards. Perceptive Pixel won the Interaction Design award (http://bit.ly/2HtFFh). There seems to be several other FREE public programs (http://bit.ly/3UH7Et) occurring with Jeff Han (of PP) giving a talk on the Future of Interaction Design.

Anyone in the DC area may want to give it a look. I’m very tempted to head down myself.

Cheap Web Survey Services, etc.

I'm associated with a non-profit that wants to do a survey of its few
remaining members to evaluate possible future directions. The
constituency is decidedly non-technical, and the organization has
extremely little money to work with to produce this survey.

Lightbox modal dialog boxes, your feeling about them?

My sense is that as long as it isn't overused, the lightbox dialog
works well for providing essential information and/or interaction
without taking a user out of their primary flow. There are some good
examples in Designing Web Interfaces by Bill Scott and Theresa Neil,
and I've seen additional examples in the wild recently. I think it's a
familiar enough pattern that users understand it right away and know
how to interact with it, though I haven't yet tested it myself.

I'm designing a process at the moment that uses a lightbox dialog at a
critical point in the sign-in/registration process.

Franklin Institute looking for HCI Nominations

I almost never forward stuff like this to the list, but I felt that for the
Franklin Institute to be taking the time out to focus on HCI this year, is
definitely worth our attention as an event in and of itself and then by
helping it by participating in that process if you want/can.

For those not familiar.
