Publicly available video resource?

Does anyone know of any publicly available user video resource?
I'm looking to include a clip of an animated user using a poorly designed

Any assistance will be gratefully received.

Tools for organizing Faceted Navigation ideas

I am running cardsorts, brainstorming, researching, using post it notes etc etc in order to develop a better IA schema on an internal knowledge base app. Any recommendations on tools that allow you to take those ahah moments or "maybe this will work" ideas and get them down on something better than scrawled notes and whiteboards.

Event Report :: The Future of Digital Product Design

Dirk Knemeyer is an excellent speaker with a flare for the dramatic and put
together a great presentation on "The Future of Digital Product Design."
Showing a very interesting diagram that illustrated all of the forces at
work in product design--marketing/engineering, the business vision/the
product's functionality and its enabling technology/people and their
experience of a product--Dirk discussed the anatomy of product design. His
talk then touched on the evolution of digital products--including digital
convergence and next-gen digital products.

Training methods/training materials?

Hi folks,

My boss has asked me to do some usability training sessions for our
development team. Obviously this is a good thing, he wants them to be
thinking of the tools available to them and how they can utilize me better.
I would have to present to a group of about 25-40 people. They will be
developers and QA people mostly.

Can anyone share what they have done in the past in this regard?

Probably only a mental separation, I would think.

Myself, I despise "alpha" releases to select customers.

International Visits: Meet Susan Dray

Pam Migliore wrote to the ixdg list with a query (below) about international
customer visits. I've had the pleasure of knowing Susan Dray and David
Siegel of Dray & Associates for nearly twenty years. They are incredibly
experienced with international usability research and have been teaching
about it at CHI and UPA for as long as I know them.
