Digital Eskimo on sustainable design

I’m on board, Eskimo! On board the sustainability gravy train. It’s the only way.

Intuitect

So I’m evaluating Intuitect. – a UX visio tool.
Unfortunately it crashes visio quite frequently. Flashbacks from times where your computer would freeze and crash as a matter of course ensue.
Intuitect has got some very cool features though – especially automatic updates to align sitemap changes with wireframes and navigation.
I so do not like their pricing strategy though – $800 and some for a years subscription for the pro version.
Until the application gets a bit more solid and the price drops to half at what they are demanding now I’ll drop it or stick with the basic version… I’ll just give it another try now.

The core of the experience!

Ah and how I loved the ‘Pinking shears’ pattern talk from Sharon.
Here’s the original pattern man! himself btw.
