researching researchers

Hello folks,

I've been targeting researchers for the development of an online cooperative tool lately, and discovered how hard it is to find informations on researchers as users.

It seems like "the sacred world of science and research" is out of any schema, any sort of question, anything...

Do anyone of you have any info about researcher as web tools users?

Thank you,

New shopping interaction

drag and drop shopping
one page checkout

I'd like to tweak the checkout some (e.g.: "ship to different
address?") etc., but I think this is a big leap forward because it's
all visible all the time, and it looks easy and fun to use.

Kudos to Panic.com. They make good OS X software too, in Portland OR.

ISO graphic designer and user-recruitment firm

Greetings, IxDA! I've been plying my personal network for these roles, but
without much luck so far... A client of mine needs to fill two roles: a
graphic designer, and an organization who can find and recruit users in a
certain demographic. These are likely to be short-term contracts, and
they're needed soon -- within the next month or so. The client is located
in the Boston area, but that doesn't necessarily matter, as these can be
done remotely.

Graphic designer role: The client needs a good visual identity.

How much of menu levels should you show?

Hi all!
Usually when I designing a web site I always show the full hierarchical structure when someone drilling it self down to a sub page, pretty much like the Windows Explorer tree navigation. Like this for example when a surfer visits the page "Subservice item 1":
1. Home2. Services 2.1 Service Item 1 2.2 Service Item 1 2.2.1 SubService Item 1 2.2.1 SubService Item 1 2.2.1 SubService Item 1 2.3 Service Item 1 2.4 Service Item 13. Products4. About us5. Contact
This approach unfourtnually generates a pretty big menu that is seldom suiteble for horisonatal navigation.
