NYC Usability Professionals Association presents:

Big Thinking in Small Places: Using Visual Feedback to Enhance User
Experience

It's time for designers and user experience practitioners to imagine a
wider, richer range of user interface possibilities. Join us to hear Joshua
Seiden, founder and president of 36 Partners and Steering Committee Member
of IxDG, talk about a set of "modeless" techniques to create a richer user
experience.

Examples?
* Smartmoney's market map that changes the size and color of the top
securities to represent the latest market state
(http://www.smartmoney.com/marketmap)
* The clock face on the Nano iPod that changes color to indicate AM or
PM (http://arstechnica.com/reviews/hardware/nano.ars/2)
* The homepage matrix and menu of Ten by Ten
(http://www.tenbyten.org/10x10.html)
* Basecamp's Web-hosted project management application
(http://www.basecamphq.com/)

Josh will show more examples and discuss some common categories of UI
problems that could be better solved by using this approach.

Following the presentation, there will be time allotted for a lively Q & A.
