Mozilla Design Challenge: Summer 09 – “Best in Class” honors and “People’s Choice” award

Two months ago, IxDA partnered with Mozilla Labs and Johnny Holland to
sponsor this summer's design challenge, “*Reinventing Tabs in the Browser –
How can we create, navigate and manage multiple web sites within the same
browser instance?*“.

We were completely overwhelmed with the response, almost 130 entries. It was
amazing to see entries come in from all over the world, varying wildly in
approach, context and execution. Narrowing down this set into some
best-in-class selections did not come easily.

How could I deal with my ex-employer for not releasing the design work I\'d done?

I have been working for a company creating online software/application
for the past years. Recently I got laid off and they disabled my
connection to the company's server right away. Since I was a remote
employee, I wasn't able to get the design files I'd done for the
company. Therefore, I emailed them to ask for a copy for the purpose
of creating personal portfolio. They transferred my question among
different managers and ended up ignoring my request.
