Designing the user experience of future peripatetic users: new HCI design challenges in Space

Travelling to the depths of Space is no longer a privilege of astronauts and scientists. Space Agencies are starting to allow those who have the means to afford it, provided that they fulfil a minimum set of physiological requirements to join the ventures into outer space. At the same time, companies are developing spacecrafts for civilian use and plan huge space stations capable of accommodating thousand of settlers.

Design Usability Heuristics (DUH) Accreditation: A Modest Proposal

Are you a crappy but ambitious designer? Career going nowhere? Tired of spending time at conferences learning things but have nothing to show for it except knowledge? Don't want the hassle of getting an actual degree at an accredited university in design or HCI, but don't want to pay some company money for their fake accreditation?

hover delay

We are trying to figure out the right amount of delay time for an
interaction that happens on hover delay over an image. Does anyone know how
long the hover delay is for the Netflix hover that appears on with film
info? In our particular situation, on hover an image immediately looks
selected and on hover delay it sort of pops out in this card thing with more
info in a unique way (hard to explain here). We're trying to figure out how
long to delay before it pops out. .5 second? 1 second?

Creative Waves - COTEN Call for Participants

Hi all - I know some of you can't bear the term service design, but I also know many of you (like me) find it very much akin to your IxD or UX work. I could do with some help spreading the word on a collaborative online project I'm running based on a series that we have done over annually called Creative Waves.

Distracting Users During Load Load Times

I've got the following problem:
we're trying to incorporate bulk actions to a list and the server needs time to process mulitple requests, which result in a long loading time (around 10s-20s).

Been looking for a list on what techniques we can do to distract users from feeling the loading time being slow. Were currently implementing an loading bar ajax loading on loop would you guys know any other way thats more satisfying than this?

IxDA Infrastructure Initiative, re-launched

Dear IxDA Members,

I’m pleased to be re-launching an initiative dedicated to delivering
next-generation infrastructure for IxDA.org.

If you’re an avid IxDA list reader, you may have seen mention of this
infrastructure initiative over the past few months. Nasir Barday,
another IxDA Director, and myself have been the core team, working
with other Board members and several other leaders in our community.
We were moving rather quickly towards finalizing our feature list and
creating an RFP for development resources.
