Breadcrumbs including page title or no?

I tried to make a change to a site I'm new to working on, to remove
the page title as the last element of the breadcrumb and simply treat
the title itself as the last element in the breadcrumb, including a >
last and keeping the title immediately below.

UX Team Collaboration

I've suddenly found my team grow from one to three and it's clear
that a centralized file system is needed, especially as the team

I'd love to hear how other teams are working, managing their
documentation for both the UX/IxD/VD phases for projects.

My aim is to have a central file repository that manages versions and
is easily accessed on/off location.

I appreciate any insights into this.

Designing a long list of items that people must choose from.


I'm looking for some advice, examples or even recommendations of who might
be good at solving this particular problem for us.

In the context of a longish multi-page web form we have a need for the user
to tell us at a fairly granular level what their occupation is. the total
length of the list is long, more than 1,000 choices. The accuracy of the
answer is pretty important to our business as is our desire not to stop the
users flow through the application because of either the difficulty or
perceived intrusiveness of the question.
