Examples of annual reports online

I'm looking for examples of annual reports online that are good. That,
maybe, even start to make use of the online environment and what it can
do. Or at least that go beyond a PDF of the printed version!

Bonus points if they look nice.

More bonus points if they are done with a web standards markup focus.

I know, I know, not asking for much :)

Amy happy to collate and post back to the list.


- ps I posted to sigia-l also, so apologies to those who see this twice.

Form filling on touch devices

I'm working on a project where a user will sign up for an account on a touch device. (This is a one time only flow). This process involves 5 fields. From what I've read/experienced over the last couple years, it's often good to limit screens to one field, so the user can focus on that, fill it out, and continue on (via a next button or whatever). 

One reason for this is that error recovery can be very tricky on these devices, and people can get confused on how to navigate fields.

ADMIN: Subject lines (was Re: (no subject))

Hi Gang,

Can I ask that people please be sure to add a subject line to their

to add a relevant subject line than to leave the thread without one.

Thank you!

aesthetics in design that might be good to get.

What I'm interested in more specifically is if there is a sense of
aesthetics around interaction. How can we as designers mold, play, conjure,
or otherwise control that aesthetic and harness it more purposefully than we
