Tog's IxD 101 Immersion Seminar - Opinions, anyone?

Hi All,

A long-time product manager that I know is thinking of expanding
her repertoire with some IxD skills. She's asking me if Tog's IxD
101 is any good, but I don't know offhand anyone that's taken it.


Thoughts out there? Are there other options that you'd suggest in
the intensive realm for a relative newbie to IxD?

Hi gang,

I know we are jumping into the Holiday weekend, but our Wordpress

wordpress expert to help us with some web site upgrades we really want

If you got the chops, we got the need and we can probably throw in for

XP: Extreme Programming &amp; Product Usability

They don't fit in. :)

Here's why:

XP relies on a "customer" to decide which features should be implemented
and when. A "customer" may be a product/project manager, customer service
employee, a marketing resource, etc.

on Critique (was G1 Android - case study in inconsistency)

So the discussion on the G1 has now turned into one of critiquing Google
design as a whole.
Anyone from Google here want to step up?

I think one of the big issues is one that Jared Spool's latest Webinar is
trying to address in the UX community. Where is "critique" in UX, In IxD?

I think to have a discussion about design and Google we need to have an
understanding of what we are all talking about and this happens at 2 levels.
1 is the functional. We are great at evaluating functionality and usability.
The other is aesthetics.
