Navigating interactive 3D environments / exhibition spaces

Hi folks,

I'd appreciate a bit of feedback on the underlying UI for this online
exhibition technology.

In this example, the art has been created by various celebrities ( Bono,
Rio Ferdinan etc ), so at least it's interesting to have a look at in
general, while you are testing out the UI.

Here's the link...

For now, I won't tell you how to use it, to see if it's reasonably

Anyone using a tool that organizes UE issues by task, product or theme?

I'm collecting UE defects, concerns, ideas and need to organize them so that they can be addressed by a designer. Think backlog (details, priority etc) but organized so it works for a designer, not just a developer. I'd love to be able to tag issues so they can be sorted by theme, areas of the site, specific tasks etc. I'd like visibility into trends across a user type, tool or interaction, so we are solving real issues not just firefighting. Excel just isn't cutting it.

What are tool(s) are you using? What's working, what isn't working?

Thanks in advance!

Using FB, MySpace,.. for persona development

Taking the persona discussion in a different direction. I have been
thinking lately, along the lines of how we can take advantage of the
social networking sites to develop a more realistic persona.
While this is not intended to replace the one-on-one interview to
observe and gather goals, it can be an effective
tool when it comes to humanizing the users.

Email notification issues

Hi Everybody,

Over the last few days we have been experiencing email sending issues due to our SMTP server. I hope it will be resolved quickly, but until then there could be a long delay in receiving email notifications of new discussion posts.

Top design title in your organization?

I was wondering if IxDA'ers would share their views on promotion
paths in software design.

(I believe this has been discussed to some degree before)

I see two:

1) Chief of Design or Chief Designer or ??
2) VP of Product Design and possibly Chief Design Officer

The first seems more along the creative, individual contributor
track -- similar to Chief Architect.
