eCommerce Search and Product Availability

Hi all,

I am trying to locate any studies or papers that indicate how people
use search on an ecommerce site to determine the availability of a

Our company is bouncing back and forth between two scenarios, and I am
looking for information that will sway it to the most relevant one.

Scenario 1: Person types in a search term. The site returns results.
Person then refines their search by size. Resulting page shows
everything in that size, including items that are sold out. Sold out
items show "sold out" next to item image.

Scenario 2: Person types in a search term.

An inconvenient truth: CHI is not sustainable

since the paper mentioned below is "Interaction Design" based, I
thought I would pass it along here. I hope the paper will be made
public so we can have a better discussion, but in the meantime, what
are the issues of sustainability for our community?

* Work environment
* What is unsustainable about software? digital products?

Most sustainability talk is about the physical world.

I'd be keen to see the same research. I'm working on a couple of ostensibly experience design projects at the moment, but am convinced that they need service design approaches in order to achieve the best possible client outcome.

questions about design schools and career shifts

This isn't going to help you decide much, but all those schools have

people that come out of them seem to be pretty rocking.

Cologne has Birgit Mager running the service design research center
and network there, if that's an area of interest.

Helsinki is great for mobile projects and research, for obvious

You might want to check out Hyper Island in Sweden too - it's more
eclectic in terms of digital creative work, but you would experience
lots of different aspects.
