Request for book recommendations on Behavioral Analytics

This is my very first post so I hope I don't do something wrong. I would really appreciate suggestions for books on Behavioral Analytics. Now that I've come out of the posting closet, I would just like to say thank you for the amazing wealth of knowledge you so freely give to all of us who are out there reading it.

Sketching: Tools of the Trade (Pens, Pencils, & More)

Anyone have any strong recommendations for specific models of pens or pencils for the UI sketching process? 

I'm also interested in any additional trusty accouterments you feel add to the process and quality (rulers, stencils, paper, etc). 

Direct links to purchasing pages would be a super bonus :)

Thanks,

Re: [IxDA] Display a nickname or a surname and a name

That's impossible to answer without knowing the context.

Does the user have an expectation of anonymity concerning her/his "real" name?

If not, is there value to others provided by revealing that name?

Tony, have you tried it in an alternative browser? Some Firefox add-ons can have a big effect on performance...

Can anyone suggest a good virtual whiteboard?

Hello!

There is a thread on this forum but it's couple of years old about finding a good virtual whiteboard. Just wondering if anyone has come up with any good solutions since - open source or reasonably priced. I need a whiteboard to integrate into my site where tutors post classes so that they could use it right on the site - like learnbat or tutorvista (only we don't hire the tutors, it's like classifieds for classes) Needs to have basic "whiteboard" functionality plus voice and video, primarily for 1 on 1 sessions.

Any help is appreciated!
