There's a new Lightroom podcast at George Jardine's iDisk (look for “1127 Podcast - Phil Clevenger and Mark Hamburg”) which initially focusses on the programs interface design. A little on the bland side - you'd hardly base a design on anything other than a “content is king” mantra - but it's interesting enough as it develops and digresses. Since using Aperture, I like Lightroom even more and the interface is a big part of that. I'm not sure about the designer Phil Clevenger's experience, but I've always felt Lightroom's look and feel is very reminiscent of Macromedia's Dreamweaver. And having used the latter for nearly 10 years, for me that's no bad thing.
