I am considering the fast track HFI usability courses - has anyone taken those? I found a thread from 2007 on the topic but was wondering if anyone had more recent experience. Thanks in advance.

Here's the info on the training: http://www.humanfactors.com/training/schedule.asp

best practice for security questions

Hi there

Can anyone point me in the direction of sample security questions that could
be used to verify a user's identity if they don't have an email address and
have forgotten a password? EG Mother's maiden name, first school etc etc.

I think best practice would be to let a users set the question themselves,
but in this case we need to offer a set of questions for the user to choose
from.

Thanks for the tips,
Sam

Looking for great examples of customer reviews for ecommerce.

Hi,    I'm looking to collect some best practice examples to feed into a ratings and reviews project I'm working on for an ecommerce site in the UK. Can you think of any great examples - maybe something you've seen or something you've done you wouldn't mind sharing. 

  Thanks in advance for your help.   Cheers

UX Roadmaps

I manage a small UX team within the Product department of a .com. As
part of the overall company strategy each department leader has been
tasked with creating a (gulp) 5 year road map of their respective
departments. I'm not a business school grad and have only seen road
maps and have never created one. Has anyone out there done such a
thing for a UX group and if so do you have any advice or resources
that might help me out.

I would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks,
Chip

Tag cloud generators

Hi All,

I'm doing an evaluation of the publically accessible tag cloud
generators. Tagging is quite popular now, but most of the tagging
activities belong to folksonomy, which users tag manually. Tag cloud
generators are used to create tag clouds automatically. There are
ways to generate a tag cloud:

1. Given a piece of text, create a tag cloud according to the
frequency of the words.
2. Given a URL of a web page, generate a tag cloud based on the
existing links on that web page

I found several tag cloud generators on the web and use them for my
study.
