City University London HCID will be running a workshop covering the
basics of eye tracking and how to use the Tobii Studio software

themselves, followed by a demonstration of how the analysis tools can
be used to get the most out of the testing sessions, conducted by Raj
Arjan, Interaction Lab Manager.

my suggestion for replacing the WIMP acronym

Hello Everyone. While at MSFT I was working on NUI principles to
utilize for all the products moving forward. This got me into a lot
of really high level thought processes. Based on all of the writing
for my book I have been doing, and since I left Microsoft a month or
so ago, I submit a recommendation for a new acronym. This could be
used to describe Modern User Interface Design.

OCGM, pronounced like Occam['s Razor]

Objects, Containers, Gestures, Manipulations

No need to rely on windows, menus, etc. I posted about it on my blog
as well.

JOB: UX Professional in Toronto, Confidential, Contract

This role is for an IA who can demonstrate proven ability to design
for complex, transactional web experiences. The team is a very tight
group that works collaboratively on huge financial properties. It's
a unique opportunity to experience designing for such a huge
population!!

The other great advantage this provides is that you'll be working
within an org that has a mature and deeply invested stake in UX
adoption. No fighting for UX integration here! UX leads the design
from inception. Seriously!

The role is going to require hands-on work designing wires, specs,
flows, etc...

Distinguishing between UCD, UX, and usability

A friend and sometimes client told me over lunch this week, "I think
of you as the usability guy." I didn't much care for this, because
I think of usability in terms of activities rather than an identity
to aspire to. It got me thinking about related terms, like "user
experience" (UX), and its cousin, user-centered design (UCD).
