XP: Extreme Programming & Product Usability

I'm interested in hearing from anyone here who has experience (good or bad)
with the Scrum/XP (eXtreme Programming) process for software development and
how Interaction Design, Human Factors and Usability fit in.

Hi everyone,
Most of you have heard that ABC TV filmed a segment of the show "20/20" in
our Design & Usability Testing Lab.

NYC face to face interest?

[Please do not reply to the list when replying to this message.]

Hey there,

I know it is the holiday season and all, and people might be busy, but I for
now want to at least get a sense of who on this list is in the NYC area.
To answer that question, ask yourself if you would be willing to come to
Manhattan (or other borough) for a face 2 face meeting once a quarter from
where you reside or work.

Flash usage question

Hi all,

My team is trying to weigh the benefits of
implementing a pop-up flash animation presentation
with narrated audio (no annoying music) to showcase
the features and the benefits of using our website.
The presentation would be a linear movie but would
allow the user to pause, rewind, fast-forward & stop
the presentation at anytime.

Services and Interaction Design

How does a service-oriented approach to business affect the design of
software products?

A current business trend is organizing software products and personnel
around services, rather than organizing around software products.

Seeking Interaction Designers That Can Address The Development of Online Collaboration Tools

Hello,

I am trying to identify who and where are interface designers that have
specialized themselves or that are looking to focus specifically on the
design of real-time collaboration tools.

I am in the process of helping a few web conferencing companies refine or
completely upgrade their user interface and I have found it terribly
difficult to find designers that had a keen sense of what is needed in these
types of situations.

The main issue for me is that these types of interfaces require a very
minimalist approach, the ability to visually escalate in complexity as more
advanced function

what makes for a "good" interaction?

Since we are here to discuss interaction design as its own discipline, i was
wondering "what makes for a 'good' interaction?"

Yes, the term "good" is vague on purpose, as I really don't even know the
parameters.
I know what is usable or findable, but I don't know what is a 'good'
interaction.

YADQ (Yet Another Design quote)...

...this time, from Tom Peters:

"The dumbest mistake is viewing design as something you do at the end of the
process to 'tidy up' the mess, as opposed to understanding it's a 'day one'
issue and part of everything."

This was on a throwaway received by a friend of mine; I lookes through my
collection of Peters's works, and had a look on the Internet, but could not find
the quote or its source.

US Department of Labor Occupational Outlook

In the "Designers" category - which I think describes the process pretty
well - I think IxD is Industrial Design much more than it is Graphic Design.
Or, alternately, over in the "Computer Software Engineers" category
http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos267.htm, it would fit under Computer Applications
Software Engineers.
