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


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
I know what is usable or findable, but I don't know what is a 'good'

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.

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, it would fit under Computer Applications
Software Engineers.

S. Jobs on Design

To follow up on Hal's earlier post, I thought this quote particularly
relevant to the discussions here:

"Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like.
People think it's this veneer -- that the designers are handed this box
and told, 'Make it look good!' That's not what we think design is. It's
not just what it looks like and feels like.

Contract opening, NYC

FYI. This is an immediate opening (this week!) to work
with some colleagues of mine. The project runs into
Jan, or perhaps Feb.

They need an Interaction Designer to take their field
research (a nice job of contextual inquiry) and move
forward to detailed wireframes. The product (service?
system?)is a portion of a process-oriented web site for
a pharma client.

Carbon is seeking an Interaction Designer to join
Carbon's UI Team on a project for a large client.
