Hey everyone, I'm one of the organizers for ReMIX South (last year ReMiX Atlanta), and I'd like to invite everyone to join us for ReMIX South. We've got a full track on UX, along with Web, Mobile, Tablet and Kinect tracks. Kicking off things is Albert Shum, Director of the Windows Phone Design team, giving the keynote followed by great talks from the likes of Rick Baeeaza, August De Los Reyes, Jen Downs, James Chittenden, Zachary Pousman, Luke Hamilton, Steve Dawson and many more.
Don't know if anyone of you saw the announcements in London two days ago? I
know its outside the US so it doesn't really count, but here is the heads up
A mobile, open development platform with touchscreen, haptic feedback,
presence, GPS location, WiFI/VoIP and an AJAX capable web browser. Only
Google Gears is missing. Nokia showed a touch UI phone with a development
environment. It is not multi-touch, darn! The touch screen in the demo was a
resistive type single point touch screen.

Once again, please tell me how this patent limit the development of a
robust, open pattern language for gestures?
Something interesting happened in usability testing yesterday. Without
belaboring the details of the interface (which I was not responsible
for), one of our users had anticipated a control being in one part of
the screen, so he moved the pointer there prior to the screen fully
He had good reason to. This particular site was divided into four
sections. Three of the four sections located the control in the lower
right corner. The fourth in the lower left.
Our participant noticed this immediately and pointed it out.
