HELP: Boston IxDA needs your space

Yes, Dave is right. Space for IxDA events is hard to come by!

Boston is also looking for space, and we're extremely interested in less
"conventional" environs: somewhere where the space is itself inspiring and
creative as much as the people and content are.

Considering the shelf-life that the floppy disk icon has had representing "save", I'm betting that the camera will be with us as a recognizable icon for a long, long time.

Difference b/w online & installed apps

I'm designing Interaction models, process flows and interfaces for an
application that can potentially be an online app or an installed one
(depending on capability, performance needs). From a design perspective,
should there be a difference between the two? There are of course inherent
interface elements in each type and technical limitations with a browser
based app (that are fast disappearing?).

Graduate Student Living in an Area with limited UI/UX/IxD opportunities or communities

I am a working graduate student at DePaul University. I'm currently enrolled in their Master of Science in HCI online program. I live in Louisiana so UI/UX/IxD communities are almost non existed here. Does anyone have any  suggestions for future students who are interested in Interaction Design but live in an area where there isn't much opportunity or community around?

Improving task flows

I've been trying to add more context to task flows.

I think more context is better, and I'm also gearing up for
documenting asynchronous web apps (RIAs and Ajax).

To add more context to task flows, I've differentiated between active
and passive tasks.

[EVENT] Reminder: Boston IxDA: Amy Cueva - Using Comics in the Design Process. This Thursday evening @ Autodesk.

Hey folks, hope you're coming this Thursday evening to hone your skills and
attend this fantastic workshop!

Many of the challenges we face as designers relate not to the quality of our
work, but the communication of our ideas. Boston IxDA is thrilled to host *Amy
Cueva,* Co-Founder and Chief Experience Officer at Mad*Pow, who will be
conducting a “how to” session on getting started with comics from a
strategy, process and tools perspective.

This event is open to all.
