Users and Groups UI

Hello All,

I am looking for examples of "user and groups" UI.

I have a product where I need to be able to view and assign users and
groups. I'd like to be able to click on a user to view which groups they are
in, and add/remove a group in their list. I would also like to be able to
click on a group and see which users are in it, and add/remove users.

Any examples you could throw my way, would be appreciated. I'd like to come
up with something clever, that isn't too clunky.

Windows Control - Status indicator

I am working on a development project for a Windows application (not web-based). The target audience is an average Windows user that will be using the application for 6-8 hours everyday. The application allows the user to perform many different business tasks. Each business task could contain several steps. I am looking for a Windows control that will allow the user to quickly see what step they are in within the business task. However, I do not want to go with a Wizard approach since it will slow down the user and speed is critical.

IxD training plan

I remember this topic being broached previously, but it didn't quite hit
Saying that, something may well have come online since that discussion.

I'm responsible for the IxD training plan in my area, but am finding it
difficult to get creative. My own training until now has been largely
reading, practical experience and a dollop of 'self teaching' thrown in.
Whilst I've been lucky enough to attend a couple of conferences, I've never
managed to spot any formal quals (bar the obvious degree/postgrad stuff).

Are there any formal qualifications/certs that are becoming available to

"Designing Everyday Computational Things", Johan Redström

Hans didn't post the URL for this diss. It's at and is exceptionally good. If
anyone's read Malcolm McCullough's recent "Digital Ground", Redström's
project covers pretty much the same topic, but is written as a series
of design case studies, which I find more interesting reading.
