Can anyone suggest a Masters Program in Human-Computer Interaction in the New York City vicinity?

I would like to get a Masters in Human-Computer Interaction and  live in NYC.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a program in the area?

There is a program at SVA but I am not sure if it is exactly correct.

I would greatly appreciate any help in finding a good program.

Thanks in advance.

The Power of 10 :: Results Are In!

An enthusiastic THANK YOU to all of you who contributed to and helped to promote the IxDA 10th Anniversary pledge drive. Together, we raised $23,600 to support IxDA's current and future initiatives.

IxDA has grown dramatically since our last pledge drive in 2009: our discussion list has exploded by 500% (from 10,000 to 50,000+ members); and the number of local groups has nearly doubled. Today we have 145 groups operating in 40 countries.

Reasearch: proof that interaction = increased knowledge?

 

 Because I rather blindly tend to assume these things, and would rather not, has anyone seen any research or proof that interaction with a site (or other digital experience) improves knowledge? 

Ideally this would be proof that interaction results in you finding a product/service more relevant to you ... it would be good to know if you've seen something.

Happy to discuss,

John (@smorgasbord)

Job Board request: Remote positions

Hey everyone, 

As a current remote job seeker, I'd love to see more explicitly remote (or open to remote) positions on the job board. Telepresence is becoming more and more prevalent, so it'd be great to separate those remote jobs out so folks like me can easily find them.

How can we make this happen? 

P.S. To anyone looking to hire a full-time, remote UI Engineer or Product Designer, contact me kevin at kevinsuttle dot com. I'm currently looking for new role. Thanks in advance.

Update - The Power of 10 :: Seed the next 10 years of IxDA

This is the final week of our Power of 10 pledge drive. At 5pm EST Monday, we'd raised $4580 towards our $25,000 goal. Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far – 45 of you have generously helped us on the way to our target.

100% of the pledges so far have been unrestricted donations. That means IxDA will be able to channel your support towards the initiatives and improvements to our tools that matter most in advancing our mission – especially technology platforms like ixda.org.
