SVA v. Bentley

Hi all,

Does anyone have any thoughts on SVA's Interaction Design program v. Bentley's Human Factors in Information Design program?

For background: I've got a few years' experience as a project / product manager, and want to get more into hands-on UX work, and be able to design products and digital services from the ground up (I'm not a developer, though I did study computer science way back in college).

Bad Usability Calendar 2009


The Bad Usability Calendar 2009 is here! Since 2005 it has been distributing
good examples of bad usability around the world.
Check out the fresh examples of crappy content, meaningless mash-ups,
ignoring standards, making it too easy(!) and more.

Download the calendar at: http://www.badusability.com

Anyone want to translate it? So far we have English, Norwegian and
lol-speak. Translation is under the Creative commons license and you will be

IxDA server maintenance

Hi Everybody,

As I'm sure you've all noticed we have been having some server problems over the last while. This is largely due to traffic (a good thing). Our limited volunteer time has delayed the move to a larger server too long, so we hope to get things back on track at this point.

The IxDA site is moving to a new, and hopefully, much more stable server tonight. There should be no down time, but sometimes these things don't go quite as smoothly as planned. 

I hope to be posting another update from the new and improved server in the morning.

Matt, IxDA

IxDA NYC – Tues, Mar. 31 – Marc Rettig - How to Change Complicated Stuff (e.g., the World)

In the midst of a global conversation about change, many designers are
pondering their own impact in the world. How does our experience in software
interfaces, web sites, and physical products prepare us to address the
profound issues humanity is facing? These issues involve many complex
systems, systems too big to fit into the scope of any single company or
