Axure widget libraries for web and mobile

Several people who saw Keynotopia asked me if there is something similar for Axure. After doing some research, I found that most options aren't good enough. So with the help of a couple of designer friends, we created Axutopia, an awesome collection of Axure widget libraries for prototyping apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, Facebook, Web and desktop.

We've also put together a free Twitter bootstrap widget library for Axure that you can download and try out.

Sites that sell a product, but also provide content

I'm working on a new site that sells a service but also provides content related to that service. I'm struggling on how to make sure the content doesn't just feel like a marketing ploy for the service. Any examples of sites that have done this successfully?

[JOB - FREELANCE] Looking for freelance IA for a music project I'm working on in Greensboro, NC

Hi everyone,

I'm well aware that we have a Jobs board to post to, but this is more of a freelance project that is a few weeks and not full-time. I don't have a budget for posting this gig to the jobs board and I apologize for that. I'm not a recruiter, but a fellow IA and Product Manager who needs some help with this project, because I'm also acting as project manager, and I just don't have the bandwidth to handle all three major tasks. I'm calling in the troops, so to speak. LOL.

I am wondering what the reputation of bentley's HFID program is- I can't find anything online about it outside of the schools website.

Malmö anyone? Need application advice


First of all, really quickly, I've looked around on this site and don't see much if anything about the IxD masters at Malmö University.  Did anyone out there go there?  Is it respected in industry?

Grad School: HCDE vs. HCI/d vs. Digital Media

I've recently been admitted to the Human Centered Design & Engineering MS program at University of Washington.  I was also admitted into the HCI/d program at Indiana University - Bloomington.  Still waiting on a decision from the Digital Media program at Georgia Tech.  

SO: if I was to get into all three programs,  which should I choose?  I'm leaning towards HCDE at UW at the moment - i want to be an Interaction designer if that helps...  

Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated!  Esp. if you went to one of these schools!
