What are common Application Software Development Team sizes?

I am one of two interaction designers at a hardware company, and am
curious about the interaction design teams who work at software
companies and develop application software. What are the average
team sizes for the development of the User Interface and
Interactions?

Thanks,
Lindsey.

Layar app - What do you all think this portends for IxD?

Hey all -

Saw a very brief demo of a *reality* browser on TV last week via Brink on the Science Channel (which btw also had an excellent demo by Bill Buxton & the MS Office Labs 2019 vision--posted elsewhere on this forum).

Basically it seems to be mobile browser (served as an app) which in real time mashes-up digital content (information) and physical context---it's called Layar and seems to be live in the Netherlands.

Very, very cool stuff was curious to know if there were any thoughts or if anyone has had first hand experience with something like this.

Theres been some discussion in the past few months about establishing

have blogged about it.

Here is my contribution, yes its a diagram.

[Event] Seattle Book Club, 29 July, 6:00pm

Hello from the Seattle local chapter. I'm organizing a book club
meeting/discussion next month. If you are planning on coming please
let me know.

The Book:
Designing for the Digital Age (Kim Goodwin) - Chapters 1 -11 (Getting
Started, Research, and Modeling).
It's pretty thick so we'll break it down into two sessions or maybe
more. I think the book is a lot of food for thought/discussion so
let's just see how far we get in this meeting.

When:
Wednesday, July 29, 6pm

Location:
Cafe Vivace (Espresso Vivace Alley 24, 227 Yale Ave N, Seattle, WA.

Education for a team of none

Hi all,

Over the past few years as a web designer I’ve noticed a lack of
education specific to people like me.

I wrote an article on the subject, and I implore you to read it.

http://jasonrobb.com/2009/06/18/education-for-a-team-of-none/

In my article, I use an example of building robust personas. I
recently saw Jared Spool present on the topic.

Wow. This statement made me choke on my ale (I'm in London).

Business model is definitely part of the customer experience, as Jeff
Bezos so admirably pointed out:

""Internally, customer service is a component of customer experience,"

Out of Box Experience - 5 ways to make it work

The out of box experience (OOBE) describes the users first interaction
with a product or service. In the technology sector this first
experience invariably involves plugging stuff in, installing some
software and crossing your fingers in the hope that the product will
work. The problem is that, in far too many cases, it doesn’t.

Recent conducted by Accenture in the US shows that each year
consumers return millions of electronic products – not because they
don’t work, but because customers think they don’t work.
