One problem that people are having is they buy a nice set of clear lenses for their vehicle and turn around and install cheap looking chrome bulbs for replacement headlights. If you took the time to modify your vehicle, why would you install just any bulbs you can find? The problem is, after you install the mirror bulbs, you will still find a hint of yellow in the bulbs.
Here is one particular article mentioning Interaction 09. http://www.core77.com/blog/events/interaction_09_all_posts_in_one_place_12614.asp Any others?
First of, sorry for the spam if anyone is sharing the same group with me in LinkedIn but i thought this something that needs to be seen. http://news.cnet.com/8301-13860_3-10173982-56.html?part=rss&subj=news&tag=2547-1_3-0-20 Click the link above and read the article first. Then, at the end i highly recommend you to watch the movie (It's really something!). For the movie, you need microsoft silverlight which can be downloaded by just clicking the... [read more]

Hi there, I'm managing post-production for our conference videos, slated for a rollout that will begin on Feburary 23rd. If you spoke at the conference, please send your slides to email@example.com. The videos will have the slides full frame as much as possible, but we've had some requests for the slide decks themselves. Thanks! - Nasir

Did you take a workshop at Cooper? I'd love to hear from you. I went through the first 3 and would love to see what your experience is taking what you learned back to your organization.
Some videos of Interaction 09 Karaoke, in case you missed them on the big screen: http://vimeo.com/channel30282
I'm finding in communicating the value of design to stakeholders, it helps quoting people that they tend to look up to. Two I've found / used: "The purpose of a business is to create a customer" - Peter F. Drucker “Every interaction, every contact with our products should be a pleasant experience” – Warren Buffet If you know of any I'd love to see them here. Thx :)
A big THANKS to the organizers and the board of IxDA for making this conference a very positive one! It's been a great opportunity to make many connections with people in this field and look forward to future events!
Hey all, Have a an interest in the concept of the design narrative, how nuts and bolts methods for telling stories can be used in design, or how to expand the knowledge base, understanding and practice related to stories among UX professionals? We're hoping to gather for a lunch-time discussion of this much under-explored subject. If you're game, post a comment here and we'll find a time and a place... Cheers, Cindy
Anyone want to share a cab ride to the airport tomorrow at 6:15am? Email me, please: firstname.lastname@example.org
With the conference being sponsored by Simon Fraser University, I'm anticipating a fair representation of past and current students in attendance. I think it would be great to get these people together and catch up on what we've been doing or what we plan to do after school. Or if you're not a student and you're interested in what SFU's programs have to offer, come with us and talk to the people who have been there! If you're interested in meetin... [read more]
That is all. :) See you around!

It looks like there are a few people attending who are working on enterprise software. Anyone interested in getting together at some point to share experiences, stories, etc. over a coffee?
Hi all -- In celebration of the beginning of the Interaction09 conference I'm posting our new Smart Pill video on Carousels for free this week. If you would like to buy a DRM-free Quicktime version of it, it's only $3. Go to http://smartexperience.org/sp/ixd-skills-carousels/
Am I alone in thinking ichatters, skypers etc should think artfully about lighting their faces? and about designing the backdrop? Anyone know of good examples of individuals doing this well?
The concierge on duty at my hotel is a huge coffee buff and I've been given some great places to go. Anyone interested in trying one out with me tomorrow morning (and the next day. . . and the next day)?
A few of us will be on tonight's flight from JFK to YVR. If you see some nerdy-but-hip designer types hanging around, be sure to introduce yourself!
In preparation for a presentation at this year's IA Summit, I'm looking to interview IxDA Interaction 09ers. The topic is using culturally inappropriate tactics in order to get functionally appropriate results. If you've either done it to others or had it done to you, I wanna get your story on tape. If you're interested, look for me at the conference, or after my Sat. 2:15 session, or give me a call over here at the Hotel Vancouver.
Come check out Manifest Digital's Surface Table in Le Pavilion. We will be demonstrating two new applications that we developed specifically for this conference. Don't forget your badges, you'll need them for the full featured interactive!
I intended to stay at a Best Western hotel for the conference, but due to circumstances best explained over a drink, am now at the Holiday Inn downtown. However, I have $400CDN worth of Best Western cards acquired through the AirMiles program that I cannot now use and cannot return. I will sell them for $90 on the $100 (or best offer). The cards do not have the value printed on them so I would be happy to find ways to ensure that they redeem ok f... [read more]
I thought this might be a good way to coordinate meet-ups at airports or for travel to Vancouver. I doubt anyone is leaving from Savannah tomorrow, but I'll be at ORD tomorrow at 8:20 - 9:48. I'm on UNITED flight 1127 leaving at 9:48a. Anyone else on that flight? I'm arriving at YVR @ 12:30p if anyone wants to catch a cab. I'm going to the Fairmont, but the 4Seasons is right across the way.

So I just wanted to mention that my talk ("How to Build Your First Spime Management System," Sat. 2:15) will feature both silly drawings and ridiculous Keynote transitions. You have been warned. Pretty please with sugar see http://www.dswillis.com/ixda/spimes.pdf to jump start your expectations ...
Hey there - just wanted to see if anyone else from IBM is planning to attend this conference?
