Design Thinking Portfolio

I am caught up in the NDA and out dated portolfio dilemma.  I am not able to show my best work or recent work because of non-disclosure agreements or the fact that things have been re-designed or are just not current.

I was wonerding if it would be acceptable to create new deliverables.  I do not have any paid mobile experience, so I wanted to start with that.

Are employer's more interested in the way I think, rather than what I have been paid to do in the past?

Recommendations on UX Journals and Magazines

I am trying to pull together a list of ux academic journals and magazines that not only introduce ux methodologies (both research and design) but also best practices. Off the top of my head, I can think of Interactions and UX Magazine. Anything else that is worth reading? I am interested in both theories and case studies.

I'll be more than happy to share the results with everyone!

Microsoft Products - What sucks and what rocks...

Hi all,

I haven't posted in a while, but read through posts everyday. That said.

I will have an opportunity to sit with a few of the UX and UI Designers in an interview.
Because some/many/most of you are using Windows and some/many/most of their software I would like to cast a net and see how you all feel about some/many/most of their products.

What bugs you?
What makes no sense?
What really sucks?
What's really good?

This is for any tool in their arcenal !!! Any product !!!

In the first half of the program Professor Daniel Rosenberg will focus on the emergence of the timeline as a common graphic tool. Rosenberg examines the origins of measured, linear representations of history, their alternatives, and their implications for historical thinking, as well as the power of graphic devices in the representation of information more generally.
