Interaction Design as Sculpture
So far, we have created mountains of Wireframes, Feature Specs,
Personas and Scenarios to get the job done.
I wish to remind you of the forthcoming last dates for the following Weekend
Workshops on User Centered Design by Design Incubator in Mumbai.
I have marked the dates within the next 2 weeks *in bold* in my mail below.
Our May event is actually dipping into the first part of June
(Tuesday, 6/3), but we have a great one planned! Jon Litell of Hot
Studio will be talking about facilitation and other underrepresented
but vital “soft skills”. Adaptive Path will be our gracious hosts for
the evening, and we’re planning another Hiring Salon (employers/
recruiters: bring job descriptions to share).
I'm very pleased to inform our website (http://www.ixda.org.cn/sh/) is
up! We'll be posting the updates of our local community there --
recaps of previous face-to-face meetings, job postings, upcoming
events, resources sharing --, so go check some pictures of our last

This Wednesday (that's the day after tomorrow) SpireMedia's Simon Hill will
discuss how assumptions and metaphors from the world of marketing design
don't always work when designing web applications. Simon's thoughts may
seem like "motherhood" to some, and heresy to others.
So check it out... see where you weigh in. Last time we had very lively
discussion of design process with Josh Zapin from Texturemedia -- lots of
good ideas and stimulating metaphors came out of that talk. Come be part of
Once a month, we get together to have drinks, chat, network, and geek
out with fellow information architects, librarians, usability experts,
user experience designers, and other like-minded user-centered
professionals and students. It's open to anyone, so bring a friend --
especially those in other local organizations! The format will be
casual, but all are encouraged to bring something to discuss -- recent
work, an interesting topic, or even your resume.
