design management resources

I am looking to do some research and cataloging of help in the area of design management. Specificity to interaction is great, but not neccesary. Looking for recent works (last 10 years) on process, clients (in house and out), personel and anything else I can find.

I am particularly interested in a similar dialog to what we have here for designers. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

New IxDA Face-To-Face in Waterloo, Ontario *(Ottawa anyone?)*

On the topic of Ontario IxDA group, is there any kind of group currently
active in Ottawa? There appears to be an email address and a name listed
somewhere on the IxDA site but it doesn't seems to have been updated in
maybe 2 years.

research or experience with 5-7 year old children using iPods?

I am looking for either existing research, or first hand experience around
how usable the iPod interface is for 5 to 7 year old children.

I'm particularly interested in how well kids can navigate video playlists on
the video iPod, but any information or work done with kids and iPods would
interest me.

Thank you,

--David VanEsselstyn

Tips, help for UX guy with shiny new mac.


I'm a long time Windows user who, through the generosity of corporate
America, is getting a brand new MacBook Pro, which I'd actually like to
use as my windows work machine is getting a little long in the tooth so
to speak...

So, I know Windows users have all sorts of rituals around new machines,
preference tweaking, what to install, must haves, etc... I was wondering
what the Mac equivalents are especially in regards to UX and design
work. What's the first thing(s) I should do, etc. Good Web sites?
Freeware? I'm literally starting from scratch so, no tip/advice is too

New IxDA Face-To-Face in Waterloo, Ontario

Hey folks, I'm happy to announce the formation of a new F2F in Waterloo,
Ontario, the heart of Canada's "technology triangle". Two months ago, I
joined forces with Navid Sadikali, a UX designer here in town at Agfa, to
host a couple events to test the waters and see who we could entice to show
up. Well, response was terrific. Just over 40 people have participated,
enough to convince us to make a real go of this starting next September.

In the meantime, we're holding one more event before summer hits.
