Hi David,

In my opinion, you shouldn't care what *I* (or potentially most others on
this list) like for navigation.

Re: Designer mobility to management (was ixd curriculum)

Hi Prady,

Interesting post. I wonder whether a correlation between variables is being mistaken for a causal relationship between them?

For the sake of discussion, let's take as true your perception about the negative correlation between design education and movement into management. A design education background is not likely a cause for comparatively low rates of migration into management (not likely to "handicap" one).

Your favorite software built in .NET?

Do you have a favorite software built in .NET that you'd like to share? I'm
looking for something that is particularly well design and/or leverages off
the technology to meet user's goals particularly well. I'm on a project
where we are designing for this platform and wouldn't mind being inspired =)

Really, You Should All Just Shut Up

and read

Designing for People by Henry Dreyfuss.

And relish at how it was pretty much all figured out about 50 years ago
(well, written about then... I'm sure he was practicing as such long
before then). Process, terminology, skills, etc. etc.

I've been (slowly) writing my thoughts on it on my site

How could I deal with my ex-employer for not releasing the design work I\'d done?

I have been working for a company creating online software/application
for the past years. Recently I got laid off and they disabled my
connection to the company's server right away. Since I was a remote
employee, I wasn't able to get the design files I'd done for the
company. Therefore, I emailed them to ask for a copy for the purpose
of creating personal portfolio. They transferred my question among
different managers and ended up ignoring my request.
