research or experience with 5-7 year old children using iPods?

I am looking for either existing research, or first hand experience around
how usable the iPod interface is for 5 to 7 year old children.

I'm particularly interested in how well kids can navigate video playlists on
the video iPod, but any information or work done with kids and iPods would
interest me.

Thank you,

--David VanEsselstyn

# of Designers... on the planet.

Where can I find statistics on the global and US population of
Designers.. from architects to product designers to interaction
designers, etc? An intelligent guess maybe the 'answer'. Can anyone
lead me in the right direction? How many people in the world are
involved in some aspect of Design (almost everyone by definition, but
I'm looking for active professionals)? Statistics about the global
population of engineering-centric folks would be equally useful.

[IxDA] Linkedin's navigation

I'm a big fan of Linkedin's navigation. I find it really easy and helpful.
However some of my colleagues find it really confusing.
In what ways can it be better? Has anyone faced a problem that really
irritated them? Is there a better way of doing the IA?

Pacific Northwest IA conference and job announcement list

Hello all,
I've set up a list to announce conferences, jobs and any other NW
event that seems appropriate. f any of you are living in the Pacific
Northwest or have an interest in the happenings about these parts
feel free to sign up or lurk:


NOTE: This is a bit experimental, I'm not sure if there will be
sufficient traffic to really make this worthwhile. I figure there's
one way to find out - if it dies a sad and lonely death, so be it.

Nice article on how to get the user centered perspective ingrained into

Quality under pressure was: RE: Prototypes, process, and ID

I like the idea of an award system but that might lead us into a
whole other kettle of exclusivity problems. What has worked well in
the past has been 'site of the day' awards or perhaps a review site?
Boxes and Arrows is my first guess for setting up reviews, but I
don't see why we couldn't do it on our site.

How does that sound?
