Mega Drop-Down Navigation menus

Hi all,

I’m putting together some recommendations for using mega drop-down
navigation.

http://www.useit.com/alertbox/mega-dropdown-menus.html

I’m interested in the opinion of the iXDA list on whether the
top-level navigation items should lead to pathway (or landing) pages,
or whether they can simply act as non-hyperlink triggers to the
drop-down (so no hand cursor)?

Also, if there is no pathway page, how should this impact breadcrumb
trails?

For instance:

Home > Sports > Windsurfing

- Should ‘Sport

Language picker examples

Hi all,

I'm new to building internationalized web sites, and so I'm looking
at design patterns for language pickers.

Have you seen any good ones? Much appreciated. Thanks!

capabilities of online industrial design courses

Hello. My background in design (outside of interaction issues) is kind of weak, so I'm interested in some continuing education. Specifically, I'd like some training in industrial design, and I've found a couple of graduate level programs (e.g., SCAD) that offer eLearning in that discipline. My question concerns the effectiveness of eLearning in this case.

IAS09+IxD09 = RedUX DC

You couldn't attend Interaction '09 in Vancouver because you are on a
TSA watch list.

You didn't attend IA Summit '09 because Memphis BBQ doesn't sit well
with your new healthy lifestyle.

Join us and some amazing speakers for the first ever combined IAS'09 +
IxD'09 Redux DC.

We are planning an IAS09+IxD09 Redux! We have invited a number of
fantastic people in the UX community from DC, Richmond, Philly and NYC
to come down to the nations capital for a half day presenting
condensed versions of their talks.

Showing User-Entered vs. Default Values in a form

I'm working with a client that has a consumer-based application to provide energy-saving tips.  There is a long questionnaire, so the system uses a lot of intelligent defaults based on what utility and third-party information the system has access to, as well as local, regional, and national averages.  

So, at first glance, the user fills out a handful of fields and gets energy-saving tips and savings estimates.  But, the more fields that they fill out with real information, instead of the defaults, the better the estimates.

How do I start a career in IxD? (already have bachelor's, but not in design)

Hi IxDAers,

What would you recommend for someone interested in getting started with interaction design, but who already has their bachelor's?

My plan was to make a website and gradually fill it through designing my own projects (or volunteering if I can find something nearby), but first I wanted to know if there was a better way of going about this.

If it's relevant, I have degrees in Cognitive Science and Studio Art, can teach myself programming languages, and have some experience with counseling and scientific research.

Hybrid mailing list / forum?

Are there any community software packages which work like the IxDA site does
-- that is, a mailing list that works like a forum, and a forum that works
like a mailing list? I haven't seen this executed well anywhere outside the
IxDA site, and I assume that one is all custom.
