Many of you probably already know this, but there are some active UX groups within LinkedIn. We watch these groups, and from time to time we see some interesting posts, which we try to pass on in our blog.
The most active UX groups I have seen on LinkedIn are:
User Experience Professionals Association
Interaction Design Association
If you’re interested and a LinkedIn member, you can join any of these groups (though in the case of the Interaction Design Association, a moderator has to approve your membership).

We’ve recently added some certified integration partners who have tremendous experience in helping enterprises adopt visualization as part of their internal processes. Our customers experience shows us that using ProtoShare can cut weeks or months off of their development processes, reduce rework and misunderstandings and result in more successful development efforts. Our most successful customers also use ProtoShare’s review functionality, with its web-based, always accessible commenting system, to turn ProtoShare into the “Brain” of their development efforts.
Our integration partners can help you get the most, not just from ProtoShare, but from how you take advantage of the benefits of visualization within your organization. Our partner OneSpring has written a couple of white papers about the importance of using visualization in your enterprise processes, which we’re happy to give you access to here. The first is “Innovation: How do ideas turn into innovation?”, and the second is “Agile Requirements Definition and Management (RDM)”.
If you’re interested in finding out more about ProtoShare’s enterprise prototyping processes, or about how to work with one of our certified partner’s to build your internal processes, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Ran across a really good article by Michael Mace at UserTesting.com: Responsive Design is Not Enough: 4 Steps to Make a Mobile Website Successful. This article makes a point that I tried to make in the article Responsive Design with ProtoShare, but does it much more effectively.
In short – Responsive design is a great technology, but it does not eliminate the need to think through, plan and test the mobile and tablet experiences. ProtoShare’s multiple-designs per page and the ‘Browse By’ function in Review let you quickly and effectively prototype, review and iterate on your user experience for each different mobile device category.
The article is definitely worth a read. Let us know your thoughts, and if ProtoShare has helped you with responsive design, tell us your story!

As many of you know, in addition to ProtoShare, our company has a software product called Two Minute Mobile. Last week, I was exchanging emails on Two Minute Mobile with a woman named Chelsey Lambert, who now works for the Chicago Bar Association.
This morning, I received an email from Chelsey, which read:
OH MY GOSH!
Are you responsible for ProtoShare?!
I used ProtoShare for over two years when I ran a development team & software product. I cannot tell you how much time, money and headaches it saved me! If you ever need a client testimonial, I’ve got a great one for you.
Without ProtoShare there would have been no way for me and my team to complete our project on time, under budget and without any development or design ‘re-do’s’
Just thought I would share. Hope you have a great week!
Chelsey helped get my week off to a very nice start indeed. Thanks Chelsey.
