Fortune 500 User Experience ROI

I currently work for a Fortune 500 company as a User Experience Designer/Manager. I was brought in to help enhance the user experience of certain applications both web and desktop.

Live Mesh? Does it heed well to put up personal and work data online?

I was researching on new technology and media for RIA and found Live Mesh. I found that it seamlessly connects your data through Windows PC, Mac, Mobile Phone, and other devices. It is an interesting concept and would we not want all our work to be seamlessly, updated wherever we are on the go?

Nielsen Norman Group Usability Conference--Ever attended?

I am a print guy looking to educate himself further in digital design, user experience etc and am considering attend some days of the Nielsen Norman Group Usability Conference here in NYC ( Just wondered if anyone had feedback on their conferences--I am new to this, but they seem to be about the best group out there offering this sort of experience.

We want to have a eveneing event and then follow up with a weekend workshop of a multi-disciplinary collaborative design-a-thon.

Some great examples I know of are:

Multiple Add to Cart/List in eCommerce

Hi all - 

I am looking for some sites/examples where users are allowed to add multiple items to a cart or wishlist at the same time from search results/browsing rather than having to drill down to product detail. Does anyone have any ideas/examples?

Thanks in advance!
