Who would you like to see in a Debate?

I found this from 37signals quite interesting about not being enough debate
at web conferences.

http://www.37signals.com/svn/posts/906-web-conferences-wheres-the-outrage

I wanted to have some fun with this, at the same time use it as opportunity
to expand my knowledge network by asking you guys here, who from the UX
community would you pit up against each other and why? They don't have to
be well known names, just someone with a blog that we can reference and see
their viewpoints.

White Void - Usable 3D Interface

I'm not normally one for Flash interfaces, but I thought this was
impressive, smooth and relatively usable:

Sorry if this has already been posted somewhere.

Log in fields on index page

Hi,

Anyone have any clue on the notion of why some websites have their log in
fields presented upfront while some, prefer to just provide a link to a
separate log in page?
What considerations should one take note of in order to make a better
decision?

I know for sure that by presenting the log in fields upfront makes it easy
for user to log in, especially so for social websites. But that might not be
the main reason for doing so...

Cheers,
Howie

best cites to get /host UI and UX talent

I have an opportunity to build a UI/UX team for my company and (like everyone else) am concerned about finding quality talent. There is a potential to develop this group at a number of different locations across the US. My experience has shown that certain cities will "resonate" better to the design community. I'd very much like to hear this groups opinions as to the options listed below.

R: Good examples of airlines websites

Hello.

Obviously I tend to like www.alitalia.com booking process :)

I would suggest www.aircanada.com (great booking form design), www.ba.com , www.finnair.com , www.continental.com among the airlines web sites.

www.kayak.com among meta search engines.

I think that the product page is the hardest challenge to a designer due to huge amount of ever-changing rules in airlines pricing structure. For that reason it can be hard to hide all that complexity to web user and at the same time leaving him in control.

iRise Designers

Thanks for the feedback Angel! I've discovered and experienced everything
you stated, unfortunately though, after we bought it! :)

The product is an amazing prototyping tool, no doubt about that. But it is
only as good as how much interaction you can build into it, or are willing
to build into it. Intranet sites are perfect for the tool because of the
nature of a site: page driven, page states, server hits, static content,
less form controls, etc.

Medical Appliances, Touch panel interface

I've been looking for some examples of the interfaces that are installed in
medical environments, specifically designed for monitoring / controlling
equipment.
Does anybody know of some good online references with examples?
Specifically, the device must be controlled by the touchscreen.

Or online references to some of the specific concerns that the hospital
environment introduces to HCI.
Thanks in advance,
Shaun Bergmann
