Collaborative, concurrent wireframing tool: is there such a tool?

We've been using mockflow for a project for about a month now.

It's great for many things, but the one thing it can't do is concurrent, collaborative wireframing with multiple designers. Example: - Designer A and Designer B are both working on the same project file at the same time, concurrently.

Writing a new book on Service Design

Hi folks - Lou Rosenfeld tried to post this a couple of times, but it seems something is going awry with the list, so I'm doing it on his behalf.

Myself, Ben Reason and Lavrans Løvlie are writing a book on Service Design for Rosenfeld Media. Below is Lou's announcement text, but I'd like to add a few IxDA list specific comments/requests first.

RE: [IxDA] Estimation process for UX services by hours or by deliverables?

We subscribe to the philosophy of Blair Enns of Win Without Pitching (http://www.winwithoutpitching.com/) in terms of not creating detailed estimates until we have a signed contract to do a Phase 1 (the Discovery Phase you describe below). For the Statement of Work for this initial phase, we provide a list of the activities we always plan to do plus anything specific to this project and set aside a bucket of hours plus a bit extra to allow the project to move forward while the PO for subsequent work is being approved -- for example 4 weeks of hours if we only plan to use 3.
