Office 2007 in 2006, two years later

Back toward the end of 2006, there was some fairly favorable discussion about the changes in Office 2007's GUI's (ref. http://www.ixda.org/discuss.php?post=12762). It's two years later now, and at least one segment of users that I know has a lot of mixed feelings about those changes. Specifically, technical communicators.

[JOB] UX Senior Manager in Fremont CA - Full time

Hey all -

this client of mine is looking to hire someone internal. This will be
the first time they have hired a UX person for a new software
division. This looks to be a really interesting position with
oversight on software design for touchscreen, voice and traditional
computers. They are looking for someone senior who can do hands on
design, manage a small team and external design partners.

Collaborative Review Routing

Right now, one of my teams is trying to find the most efficient method
of routing a document or site for review. The big items on the agenda
are the Design, Content and UX aspects. Right now, those are three
different documents (comps, manuscript and IA Doc), but are trying to
find a way to either:

a) combine them into a single document -- and/or --
b) Find a way of adding version control into the docs to track

Has anyone found collaborative tools that will allow version control,
commenting AND combining the different aspects of the project

IA Cocktail Hour Amsterdam --> UX Cocktail Hours Amsterdam


[apologies if you see this message more than once, and congrats on being in the right places ;-)]

For those interested in meeting fellow user experience practitioners when traveling in Europe (and obviously those that live or work close to Amsterdam) I'd like to point your attention to the following announcement.

Since 2001 I have been organizing IA Cocktail Hours in Amsterdam, about 6 a year. These events have always been frequented by a mix of people with and without the job title Information Architect, and with or without a strong focus on IA in their work.

I'm posting this to the ixda list specifically because I'm hoping to
attract a few more people from the design community :-).

Masters Programs in Interaction Design (NYC - was Kansas)

Hey Ray -

As far as I know, here are your choices.

Interaction design program at SVA (new, fulltime (meaning no parttime
enrollment allowed))
NYU ITP (fulltime)
Parsons Design and Technology program (fulltime)

NJIT offers some kind of HCI program - this was too far off the beaten
path for me to look into, so I don't know much about it.

If you wanted to pursue a more general course of study (a general
design program with the thought of applying it to IxD on your own)
then Pratt would be another option.

Interaction Museum - iMuseum


this feels like a very interesting resource. I didn't dive too deep, but the
idea and design style intrigue me.
