Mozilla Design Challenge: Fall '09 %u2013 Mozilla Weave Project

@joe - As Andy says, the goal of the Sync add-on is to allow users to
take their entire firefox experience with them, anywhere they go. So,
in addition to bookmarks (which are certainly a big part of one's
firefox experience), we also securely synchronize web history,
passwords, tabs, preferences etc.

Our goal is not to compete with other services such as delicious, but
rather work to better integrate with whatever services a user chooses.

Hope that helps clears things a bit.

Identity Design and Eye Tracking

Hello members,
the information needs of identity designers are many but one crucial
information according to Mike Kuniavsky is "the direction of user's
According to Kuniavsky, this includes what people see when they look
at an interface, what they ignore and what they consider to be the
important parts of the interaction.
Would the best measurement of such an attention be made via eye
tracking? What people say during focus groups or an interview may be
different than what they actually do in real life.

suggestions for "best in class" B2B websites?

Hi all,

Does anyone have any B2B websites that they'd hold up as good examples?
I'm doing a competitive review and none of my client's direct
competitors have remarkable websites.

I'm looking for:

- A well-done B2B site

- The company preferably sells a service rather than a physical product

- Bonus if the company provides some selling tools right on the website
rather than asking the customer just to call in for a quote

- Bonus if the company has a self-service website for customers (DOUBLE
bonus if I can become a customer so as to check it out!)

We're going to do a logistic

Non-disclosure agreements

I have a new client who wants me to sign an NDA. The issue is, what I
would be working on has to do with consumer experience. There is a
line in the NDA she sent me that says "all information or material
that has or could have commercial value or other utility in the
business in which Disclosing Party is engaged." That to me seems way
too broad and could negate my ability to work on other projects
related to user experience. Obviously, I am in no way willing to do
