Topic:
~ Article Discussion ~

For this meeting, we'd ask that you read the selected articles ahead
of time (don't worry, they're short articles, not books), jot down at
least one discussion point about each article, then come prepared to
discuss. Your discussion point can be a question, an example from your
experience, or simply your perspective. We only ask that you keep your
points constructive and not overly critical of the article or the
authors. We will have two moderators that will help facilitate the
discussion.

Thank you for your votes on the articles to read. The three "winners"
are:

"Cultures of Prototyping", Michael Schrage
http://hci.stanford.edu/bds/10-Schrage.pdf

"Getting the Right Design and the Design Right: Testing Many Is Better
Than One", Maryam Tohidi, William Buxton, Ronald Baecker, Abigail
Sellen.

"Feature Richness and User Engagement", Jakob Nielsen

NH UPA meetings are always open to anyone who is interested in
attending. Membership to the UPA is NOT required.

Hope to see you there!

Best,

Kyle
President, NH UPA
