Design with Intent - How designers can influence behavior

Stumbled across this great article talks about new approaches to UX
design that allows designers not only to understand users' tasks and
behaviour and make products that comply with them but also to change
these behaviours. Three practices described — Persuasion Design,
Catalyst Design and Performance Design

No UX Challenge 2009 at Svalbard

Dear Friends,

We are sad to announce that there will be no UX Challenge at Svalbard
in October 2009.

It seems like the financial crisis has hit our target group harder
than we hoped for. Indeed we have received a lot of feedback on the
project, where people tell us that they love the idea, but they have
a hard time finding the necessary resources to attend.

At Svalbard we need 200 participants in order to break even, and we
don't seem to be able to recruit that many this year.

However, we will not let this idea die.

[Event] Qualification for the UX Challenge (Arctic edition) is open

I'm one of the insane people organizing UX Challenge, Arctic edition
( :-).

To sum up for those of you who haven't followed the recent
discussion: The aim is to create a prototype of a web based system
that will create dialogue between people in a conflict.

The case we're working with is the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. We
are inviting representatives from both sides of the conflict to help
us gain insight and understanding about how we can help them.

The UX Challenge organizers might be insane

Looks like the UX Challenge organizers changed a few details along the way.
>From the site <>:

- There's a conference fee of $2,000 per person
- The hotel is not included — it's $450 per person for four nights
- Contrary to what is implied on another
flights from Oslo to Svalbard are not included either

In short, assuming $1,000 for airfare to Oslo (from the USA
