Has anyone been asked to create a directory of UI elements?

I was discussing a new project with someone from our Sales group, and
they asked me how I kept track of fields in case they were dropped
from the actual implementation for some reason.

UX DESIGNER - Software

We are looking for a strong application UX designer for an internal
software application. Are you ready to challenge yourself and take your
design to the next level? Some designers think that software UI is
boring and dry, but those are just the ones who don't understand the
true meaning of pushing the limits. Creating an aesthetically pleasing,
yet functional and smart UI is the hardest, but most rewarding

Anybody interested in an Agile UCD best practice sharing session in the SF Area in July?

Really interested in this, but I too am based across the pond.

Perhaps you could let us know how it goes?

In fact, I'm not the only skeptic of this stuff:

Anything that relies on the work of Carl Jung might be fun and interesting,
but it's definitely not science.

Resource/PM Tool Like Basecamp?

Hi All,

I am trying to manage design resources/assets and would very much like to use Basecamp.  However, due to security reasons, it's not an option for my group.  Does anyone know if there is open source software like Basecamp that can do the same or similar things for a team of 15 or so? I need the project based approach, as well, some type of PM functionality.

Thanks in advance!

Aesthetic craft (was "Elements of InteractionDesign")

When you write "aesthetics of use", I think of the difference in "feel"
between, say, using Flickr and using Amazon.com. The amount of information
per interface, the complexity, density, and compartmentalization of
affordances, the difference in mental models and motivations. Is this what
you mean?

REQUEST: Stats on Mac IE 5 ...

Perhaps a bit off topic, but ...

I was hoping a few of you might have (or wouldn't mind asking around
to get some) stats on visitors using IE 5 on the Mac. As a percentage
of users, I expect it to be small but I have no hard numbers.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
