Issues raised at London meet

Hi,

Firstly let me say I very much enjoyed last nights London meeting.

Two issues were raised by various people that I would like to hear more
about:

1) Who in the group is interested in software and who is interested in
all kinds of interaction, including washing machines?

2) Secondly, are people in the group looking for a project to produce,
for example, some product or research / practice insights? Or / And are
people looking for a community that supports one another and provides a
forum for discussion?

Are there key questions to ask when hiring a UX and/or IXD firm?

All,
I've been providing a colleague with a few tips about hiring contractors and firms that do all of UX and/or specific IxD tasks. I have this list ((http://www.upassoc.org/usability_resources/jobs/key_questions.pdf ) but it is geared specifically towards hiring a usability professional.

Help me categorize UX-related conferences/workshops

I've been asked numerous times to recommend conferences and workshops to
designers
and usability professionals.

I've decided to create a matrix to categorize the various events on two axis
-
1) practical to theoretical
2) non-visual to visual

If you have 5min, please take the following survey and help me create an
accurate
matrix:

*http://www.surveygizmo.com/s/99033/ux-conference-map

*I will of course publish the results as soon as I have a reasonable set of
data.

Best regards,
Russ

Slightly OT: Where is the sustainable PC?

I've just finished installing a RAM upgrade to my three-year-old Mac
to keep it viable for another year and I'm wondering: Why is no-one
out there building a sustainable desktop PC?

In graphic design, we've got to buy new hardware every 3-5 years
(sooner, if you're not a cheapskate like me) just to stay compatible
with the rest of the world. I'll be forced to buy a new a Mac in a
year or two because they've switched to Intel-based processors and
pretty soon, none of my software will run properly on the old
processor.
