Raising awareness for Interaction Design in a corporate IT company

Dear all,

my question is simple in its former but probably less so in its
answer. Therefore I would like to ask you all for input on the

--> How to start creating an awareness of the need for Interaction
(/user experience) design in a corporate IT
consultancy/developer/implementor company?

I am an Interaction Designer myself and work for such a company. We
consult, develop and implement IT. But within this there is as good as
no attention or interest for IxD/UX.

Touchscreen Question

I'm working on a touchscreen UI application at the moment, and as many
of you know, such interfaces present pretty interesting challenges.
This project is especially interesting in its complexity; it deals with
pretty vertical domain knowledge and its users need extremely flexible
and freeform methods of interaction with the kiosk...tons of buttons,
which certainly creates rather interesting issues of screen real estate
at 1024x768. ;-)

Naturally, this had made me very aware of touchscreen UI's I've used

Call for Entries: CHI2009 Student Design Competition


I want to invite you and students you mentor to contribute to the CHI2009
Student Design Competition; the competition, in its sixth year, is an
international venue for showcasing undergraduate and graduate design work.
CHI in 2009 will be held in Boston, MA.

The design problem this year focuses on the idea of local resource
consumption; the problem given to students is:

Design an object, interface, system, or service intended to support the idea
of utilizing or consuming local resources rather than global resources, in a
sustainable and environmentally efficient manner.

IA Wiki 2.0? (was Prototypical)

> what I would rather see is a live document (e.g. a Wiki) ...

I also think this is a great idea. Wasn't there already an IA Wiki?
Seems to be dead now.

Seeing as I never used it, either, there must have been something
wrong with it. What was it? Too little promotion? Not enough
participation? Bad IA? As I recall it was loaded up with content at
the beginning and rarely updated.

One problem is that our community might not be big enough to reliably
and continually generate rich content.

XP: Extreme Programming & Product Usability

They don't fit in. :)

Here's why:

XP relies on a "customer" to decide which features should be implemented
and when. A "customer" may be a product/project manager, customer service
employee, a marketing resource, etc.
