Site maps are a valuable part of the UX process but can be time-consuming to create and maintain.  I currently use OmniGraffle which gives full control over the look and structure of site map documentation but it can be tedious to update and share over time.  When I heard about Slickplan, an online application to […]

A while back we wrote about our approach to internal kickoff meetings; it has since evolved (like everything does around here!). The latest update of most significance is that we now use a presentation template to walk the team(s) through the project fundamentals.

In hopes of continually protecting my computer, I’m always faithful to my antivirus program, AVG. A few weeks ago, I was intrigued by its latest summer update, which boasted its new Do Not Track (DNT) feature.
