When things go bump in the night (at IxDA.org)

Hi Everyone,

You may not have noticed, but something went bump in the night on the IxDA
web site this week. After investigating an issue someone reported with our
RSS feeds, we found that someone had inserted some malicious code onto our
site. The code quietly directed visitors' browsers in the background to a
site that attempts to install malicious software on visitors' computers.

Tools for Faceted Search

Does anyone know of good tools for enabling faceted search? I've seen


but it looks pretty old. I work for a university, so pricey
commercial solutions probably won't work for us.

Thanks for your help!

Online or traditional training method is best?

In your profession, is self learning using online forumns and discussion groups and ebooks or attending traditional way of training helped more?

I used to read lots of books and actively using discussion forumns like IxDA, LinkedIn Groups and blogs of experts than attending traditional way of training. My last company I worked thinks that since I was not attended any training in their period, even though I was gaining good knowledge using web, that I am far behind in gaining new knowledge.

check-out and trust (was...Google Checkout'scredit card widget)

It would really educate me if you would fill in the blanks on several of
your "givens." I'm guessing that your intensive experience with checkout
makes some of these things foregone conclusions to you:
1) What specific items are vestiges (having to choose a credit card type,
multi-page wizards, not using biometrics or RFID)???
2) What momentum does Paypal have, other than being the first in years to
eat Visa/MC/Amex's lunch? This is honestly not a condemnation. I'm asking
if/how they've improved checkout.

In-house design teams - what do you call yourselves?

I'm looking for ideas on what an in-house interactive/interaction/web design team should be called within a larger design group at a large (conservative) corporation. The designers will handle visual design, consult on interaction design best practices for applications, manage online campaigns, etc -- broad enough that I'm not sure that web design/interactive design/new media design really fit, but something like "Media Technology" or similar isn't right either. 

Any thoughts? 

thank you!
