Date display formats in tables

Which date formats are most readable (and comparable), if you are looking at
rows of data in a table (where each row has a date)?

This is for an interface for a US audience where the conventional order is
month-day-year (as opposed to day-month-year).

Some examples of date formats:

12-31-08
1-1-09

12-31-08
01-01-09

12-31-2008
01-01-2009

12/31/08
01/01/09

12.31.2008
01.01.2009

Jan 1, 2009

2008-12-31
2009-01-01

Is there any user research on this issue?

(And what might work best for users of screenreaders?)

Thanks
Rachel

Advice for hiring a UE Developer

Hi,

I am in the process of hiring a UE developer for a web business application. I'm
wondering if anyone has any advice for interviewing potential candidates.

Since I am not a technologist I don't plan to ask to many technical questions. I
have been planning to focus more on process questions but would appreciate any
suggestions on other areas to explore.

Thanks,
Suzanne

Visual design for high-volume government and news websites

Hi, everyone!

I'm a senior UX professional working on the new iteration of a government website that's been around in some form or other for about 10 years. Among specialists in the field, it's well known, but it's also expected to address the public. This iteration represents a complete overhaul in terms of output and purpose.

The project is at a stage now where we're starting to look at visual design issues and at this point, having read widely on this, I wanted to ask you for your insights.

*INTERACTIVE DESIGNER AND INTERACTIVE DEVELOPER*

I am launching a web-based business focused on the college selection

completed version ready for beta.

In order to get there, I am seeking two people who will manage the
development and design for the web site. Work can be done as a part-time
commitment based on a schedule we develop jointly.
