UX manager resources

Hi, all,

Does anyone know of mentorship/discussion group resources specifically for UX group managers? The U-PODS web site seems to be down--anyone know if that group still exists, and if so, how to get in touch?

I manage two other designers, and have just had a significant expansion of responsibilities due to my company being acquired.

(Plug) Beyond Findability IASummit Pre-Conference Workshop

Hey IxD friends.

I know many of you are still drifting down from the mountaintop experience
in Vancouver, which truly sounded inspiring from the reports on Twitter and
what-not for those of us not able to attend. (I *must* make it to Savannah
next year!)

But we're already looking ahead to March.

product SUITE design

I'm struggling a little with the design of a product suite.

The products perform very different functions, but they do

makeup a suite of tools that can be used in conjunction.

The struggle is:

1) What design elements (banners, navigation, interaction patterns,
etc.) should be the same?

2) What can be different?

Atlanta needs a local IxDA group!

I think it's time to set up a local Atlanta IxDA group! That's
especially true since there's a lot of great work going on in Atlanta,
and the 2008 IxDA conference taking place in (relatively) nearby

We already have a related group[1] that started out with an IA
orientation, but it really covers a range of UX disciplines. Whether
you're interested in that, or you want to set up a separate IxDA
Atlanta group, speak out, and we'll see where interest takes us.

Physical vs Digital Buttons

I completely agree with you Dan. As someone who has come to user
experience design for the web from an industrial design background, it
seems obvious to me that non-mechanical buttons lack the tactile feedback
which would instill confidence that an action has been completed.

That being said, I think that unless mechanical buttons are very well
implemented in terms of both tactile feel and auditory feedback, they
often feel "cheap". There are both good and bad implementations of
mechanical buttons.
