pictures of the event.

presentation by myself, you can can go to

We will be posting the "Birth of IxDA" presentation by Greg soon.

Is a Flash-intro to a personal portfolio still good/relevant?

Let's assume that you've done the proper work to provide a "Skip
Intro" button. Let's further assume that you've done at least the
minimum to make your content accessible to people without the Flash

The question I ask, then, is: does having a Flash intro to a personal
site, which may include one's portfolio or resume, make sense in
today's job market and design environment?

Managing Change (Was: Iterative Change Manageme nt / Patriarchs of the Design Family)

I suppose this comes down to an ethical argument. As designers should
we be held responsible for the long term results of our designs,
including their social, environmental, and other effect. Or are we only
responsible for the bottom line.

I must say, my opinion on this is we need to embrace the wider
responsibilities or we'll end up with a world no-one wants to live in.
So as other professions have ethical commitments we should too. I know
a few related groups have started on this sort of thing.

live chat best pratices

Is anyone here aware of any research regarding best practices for
implementing live chat on the web? I'm also interested in hearing
well-reasoned opinions and seeing examples.

For example, I've visited several sites that automatically open a live chat
window if the user has been inactive on a page for over a certain length of
time. To me, this seems like a poor experience for a couple of reasons. I
think most users like to research online because it offers time, privacy,
and quietness. On the web, there are no sales people popping up to ask if
you need any help.

Tablet PC & annotation system

Hi folks,

I can't for the life of me locate the details about a tablet PC (I
think!) that has an annotation system for taking notes & recording
audio at the same time...does that ring any bells? I searched the
Discuss archives to no avail. I mentioned it to a friend who needs to
find some technology to facilitate her field interviews but now it's
feeling more like a figment of my imagination.
