Patriarchs of the Design Family (was: New Uber DesignOrg)

MessageDo I defend IDSA or Icograda? Not necessarily, but I support every honest attempt to strengthen the voice of design.

Would I want to have someone else speak for me? Yes, if they among other things constitute a powerful (lobbying) force to develop, educate about and promote the importance of design to relevant stakeholders. No, if they presume to speak for the discipline I adhere to, interaction design, without having the required competence to do so, and going counter to my interests.

Patriarchs of the Design Family (was: New Uber Design Org)

It's interesting to note that in Italy, industrial and product design
sprang from architecture. (Until recently, it wasn't possible to
study these things separately from them.) I also have heard but can't
verify that Italy graduates 10,000 architecture students each year.
Bill Moggridge at last weeks' Ivrea symposium indicated that
interaction design is a sort of digital industrial design (to Beth
Mazur's earlier point). Those who come from technology tend to look
at it differently: as a series of interfaces and interactions with
screens and layers of information.

I tossed the above out to see what thoughts might emerge. Interesting that
some folks came back to defend the orgs.

Design Council description of ID (Round II)

Thanks to Danny Bluestone for pointing it out, but the link didn't work,
probably as a result of the link auto wrapping in a plain text email. Now
sent as an HTML email instead which will hopefully make this email more
usable!

If you only receive plain text and the link does wrap, then copy the first
line of the link and paste it into the address bar of your browser, then
copy the second line of the link and paste it into the address bar,
appending the second to the end of the first to make one long URL.

Design Council description of ID

Positivism!

The Design Council (UK) are a generally well respected design organisation
and through Nico McDonald have provided an excellent description of what
Interaction Design actually is.

To hide or not to hide - resolution

Hi everyone

Thanks for all of the notes and suggestions. Its great to be able to put these questions out there and get such thoughtful responses! I thought I'd let you know the outcome of this one.

We're at the stage now where final decisions are being made on how to proceed with this, and we're going to go with a fairly informative and interactive approach. We'll have information about the advanced product available via splash screens during the standard installation process, and we'll have a link to upgrade information and purchase procedure (via a HTML page) under the help menu.

The Long Now seminar series

This organization is doing some profound and profoundly
moving thinking about time, civilization, technology,
and our shared future.

There are perhaps interaction design challenges here,
but I thought many on this list would be interested in
this in a more general sense. (And, since I just posted
a Boston-based event, this one is for the westies out
there.)

You have perhaps heard of the 10,000 year clock
project, an attempt to build a clock that will run for
10,000 years.

In some ways, the problem is a classic design and
engineering problem.
