IxDA Quoting

I've been working on a couple experimental additions to the
discussion list that I think are ready to see the light of day.

thread into your replies from the website. Try the quoting
bookmarklet for Safari and Firefox or the quote feature for iPhone
and iPod Touch.

User stories vs. user personas

Hi All,

Part 2

The other thing I will add, I have rarely (E)mailed in my portfolio
