Personalized Dashboard: Widgets & Modules

All -

I am designing a portal that allows the user to add mutiple widgets/modules to their personalized dashboard. I've done extensive user research, but I am unsure if the widgets/modules should be pre-populated with data. The argument against this is the widgets/modules are highly customizable to the point where it is hard to predict what a particular user type needs in each widget/module.

Trying to educate my design team

Hello, all. I have been lurking for a while and finally have a dire need
that I hope you all can help me with. I am currently trying to organize some
'lunch and learn' sessions in an effort to educate our design team on, well,
designing more effectively for the medium. I have several things I plan to
cover such as web standards, table-less design and how it can liberate the
designer, using fireworks as a prototyping and comp tool rather than
photoshop, do's and don'ts, among other things.

I just read off of Kars Alfrink's blog about this IxD series in the Netherlands.
Me makes mention of one that's similarly titled in London, but I

Here is what Kars is saying about it. First one is on Nov 3rd.

how to give a start for you innovation !

As a creative web designer, you will probably jobless in the near future; because variety of web layouts, iconography and interactivity has already invented and tested within the past 20 years. You may only experiment new graphic styles; but not more then that…  Regardless, your boss, your customers or the users still demand on your innovations to be impressed, but it isn’t so easy as before.

feedback from your users during the design process</snark>, you might be
wondering how you recruit these folks to be part of your research.

In today's online webinar, Dana Chisnell will be talking about the
recruitment process, from soup to nuts, including some advanced techni
