Lynda.com is offering their Expression Blend v1 (6 hours) and Expression Design v1 (6 hours) *FREE* for everyone.

Lee Brimelow (www.thewpfblog.com) is the presenter for Blend and Ted LoCascio for Design.

Event Announcement - 'New Challenges' IA Retreat

Following last year's hugely successful Future of IA retreat in Asilomar, we are
excited to announce another IA retreat, which will be taking place Oct. 7-9, at
the Edith Macy Conference Center (about 45 minutes from New York City.)

This year's theme is New Challenges in Information Architecture and we've
already got several great presentations lined up (and we encourage anyone
interested in presenting to submit a proposal.) The event is sponsored by the
Information Architecture Institute.

registration download flow

I'm working on a product (toolbar) for a client that requires a download.
Has anyone done any research or have anecdotal evidence regarding

For those of you out there that enjoy the great outdoors, Moosejaw.com
just launched a new site... curious what everyone thinks. REI.com made
*huge* steps forward with their recent redesign, and although
Backcountry.com is no longer top dog, I'm pretty sure they saw this
coming and are working on something hot. Can't wait.

Examples of Cooper-style "requirements"?

Our team has just developed an extensive set of context scenarios,
describing how our personas will interact at a high level with the web
application we intend to develop.

About Face spends barely 1.5 pages talking about extracting requirements
("the personas' needs") from scenarios. I get the basic idea, but I learn a
lot better from examples. Perhaps some of you out there have real
requirements sets you could share?

Unfortunately, it's accompanied by the all-too-common pathetically low
salary for an IxD H-o-D.
