No Exit Point in Wizard Design

When I went through the process of transitioning from hotmail to Windows Live Mail Beta, I noticed that the wizard only had the "Continue" button. There was no way to get out except for closing the browser. Even the top logo was not linked to anywhere.

I had no problem of going through the wizard to make the transition successful.

Enterprise Application Design Approach Question

Afternoon,

QUESTION
Has anyone ever designed an enterprise application's first release to have only a wizard for creating complex 'objects'; then, offered a more hands on solution for a hot fix or subsequent releases?

EXPERIENCE
The above question occurred to me during a presentation of an enterprise application that took months to design.  Moreover, it was only after the project had been developed could the design fully be realized in all of its complexity.

Issues raised at London meet

Hi,

Firstly let me say I very much enjoyed last nights London meeting.

Two issues were raised by various people that I would like to hear more
about:

1) Who in the group is interested in software and who is interested in
all kinds of interaction, including washing machines?

2) Secondly, are people in the group looking for a project to produce,
for example, some product or research / practice insights? Or / And are
people looking for a community that supports one another and provides a
forum for discussion?

Recently I've become responsible for a team of designers who had had no
leadership for a period of almost six months. My first questions to them
was what their current problems were and where they wanted to be. It was
interesting how the issues of creativity and engagement were the first
ones to appear.

Help me categorize UX-related conferences/workshops

I've been asked numerous times to recommend conferences and workshops to
designers
and usability professionals.

I've decided to create a matrix to categorize the various events on two axis
-
1) practical to theoretical
2) non-visual to visual

If you have 5min, please take the following survey and help me create an
accurate
matrix:

*http://www.surveygizmo.com/s/99033/ux-conference-map

*I will of course publish the results as soon as I have a reasonable set of
data.

Best regards,
Russ

P.S.
