the UX hall of shame

I am 1/3 laughing, 1/3 flabbergasted, and 1/3 MAD at how poorly
www.godaddy.com <http://www.godaddy.com/> is designed

(plus I am trying to use it at 130am and I am tired anyway, which is making
me even more laughing/flabbergasted/mad)

But it brings up a fun idea:

How about a UX contest to redesign that site?

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.

http://www.nngroup.com/events/tutorials/interaction.html

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

Thanks!
Chris

Tool for submitting design requests

Is anyone using a lightweight tool that they would recommend for managing
design requests
from other departments? For example, we would like to have something very
simple that
would allow development to submit a request for a design that we could then
track, manage,

Best regards,
Russ
