Examples of products/sites that used personas


It's been a long time since I've come across specific examples of products/websites that were built using personas (the ethnographic variety).  I know there are companies that utilize personas (Microsoft, Canon, etc) but I'm having a tough time tracing it to actual names of products.

Any examples would be much appreciated!

A new way to start iOS projects

Hi everyone, we have a great product to show you today. It is a brand new way to start iOS project and it is called App Cooker. Note the idea, sketch the icon, make interactive mockups, write the store info and estimate the profitability in one place. We believe that this will be a very nice App for all the actors of the iOS world. With App Cooker you design your apps like a chef before starting to code.

Need to get trained in Axure RP

Anyone recommend an organization/individual/web resource that they've used to receive formal training in Axure RP?  In person preferred, but online training will also be quite alright.  How much did it cost and what levels of instruction were available? Thanks!

Multi-touch References

Hi everyone,

I was looking for references on designing for large multi-touch displays or surface tables. I saw Jason Brush's Mix 10 [1] talk that was really interesting. Can anyone think of any relevant books, presentations, or videos on the topic?

UX Brunch Baltimore!

Let's brunch together! Since Jeff Parks and I will be in Baltimore the weekend of 22-24 April for Rush (the band, Friday night) and the game (O's v. Yanks, Saturday night), we thought, "hey, let's get together & brunch on Saturday with some UXers in the area!"

Thus was UX Brunch Baltimore (#UXBrunchBalto on the Twitterz) born.

So, who's in? Who can arrange a place for us around 11:00 a.m.? Probably 15 folks? In walking distance perhaps from Aliceanna Street (between Fells Point & the Harbor)? Or a cab ride?
