Welie.com and Design Patterns

All,

A recent Google search of mine returned the site Welie.com as one of the
first hits. I've never seen this site before and couldn't find anything
about it in the IxDA archives. Since the site is about patterns in
design interaction, I was wondering if any of you have used the site and
what you thought of it? It appears to be published by a single
individual, but he does seem to have some decent credentials.

Thanks,

Brian J.

**SL-JUNK** method for keeping track of employee UI suggestions?

Hi David-

There are some third-party tools that exist specific to collecting
user feedback on products - one that I have seen, but have no
knowledge of, is Ideascope. the marketing material makes it sound
great. :-)

We use a wiki for product requirements, and bugzilla for tracking
suggestions.

The way we have worked it out is that suggestions "out of the blue"
are assigned to a special "product management" product, with a
component that corresponds to the particular product in question.

PC to Mac port

Hello,

We are planning to port our PC-based application to the Mac. The target audience includes SOHO (Small Office/Home Office) users as well as corporate Mac users.

If you’re a Mac user, I’d appreciate hearing rants and raves about software you’ve used that was originally written for the PC. What worked well? What drove you crazy?

Thanks,
Cynthia
