elegant.ly: LinkedIn for designers

Jason Putorti—the ex-lead designer for mint.com—is launching a "network of design and user experience professionals for lead referrals to Internet startup companies. " It sounds like LinkedIn for desginers to me, although he is smartly leveraging your existing LinkedIn profile: You'll need one to sign up.

It's too soon to say how valuable this will be, but it can't hurt to sign up. right? Plus, I want to support him in his role as "Designer in Residence" at a VC. I think more VCs should have designers on the payroll.

IA wiki was down?

Hi all,

 

At this moment, I'm trying to find some references on the IA wiki mentioned on the book.

However, I couldn't access at both "iawiki.net" and "iawiki.org".

And I got a bad news with Googling; http://www.info-arch.org/lists/sigia-l/0711/0077.html

Was it down in 2007, already? Anybody who has the archive? We might lose one of important resources.

Do you have any information about IA wiki? Thank you in advance.

 

Tony

Also, if you know of any open source tools out there that can achieve the same goal, please share. Thanks

Hi,

Does anyone know this site and the quality of their work: http://www.usabilityprofessionals.org/ they charge $100 / year for membership an I wondered if this be a nice addition to the IxDA membership.

Their site doesn't look that userfriendly, but they have a lot of activities and a printed magazine.

Flash Video Players

Hi all,

Is there any patterns or best practice examples for flash video players on corporate sites?
We are running out a project on the company I work for and one of the assets will be the development of a new universal player for the company site, so it would be good to see if anyone have done any study or have any examples in place already.

Thanks a lot.
