2010/2011 Fall to Spring Schedule

Maine IxDA is pleased to announce the 2010-2011 Fall to Spring Schedule. We're trying something different this year.  Instead of having multiple, disparate topics, this year we are going to center our events around the theme of Ubiquitous Computing.   Ubiquitous computing (or ubicomp) is:

"a post-desktop model of human-computer interaction in which information processing has been thoroughly integrated into everyday objects and activities."

Apologies if this is inappropriate but I thought it might be worth a shot to see if any of you fine folks knew of openings for an interactive designer/information architect around the Portland-Freeport area. I'm making the move in October & scouring the interwebs for a new agency to call home.

I've attached my resume in pdf format.  It would be greatly appreciated if you had any guidance for me. Hopefully I'll be seeing some of you around town soon!

Thanks for your time,
Deanna

UX Book Club - Sketching User Experiences

Hi IxDA Members!

Last night was the first ever, UX Book Club in Maine!  It was an awesome night of insightful discussion and exploration into the book by Bill Buxton.  There were seven of us at Bard Coffee where we shared:

1.  "Takeaways" from the book;


2.  Concepts or practices mentioned in the book which could be used in everyday practice in our work;


3.  Favorite concepts, passages or quotes from the book.

Ethical Design: Are Most Social Games Just Virtual Slot Machines?

This interesting post on games that you pay for...which essentially play themselves and don't require user interaction.

Future home of Maine IxD events...? State Theater!

Don't know whether you've ever been in this gorgeous old renovated theatre -- it closed down about 6 months after I saw Interpol there in Oct 2005. Looks like Maine might have a another cool events venue (Poptech Portland, anyone?) in the future.

State Theater. Finally?
