Newspaper company looking for a UX mentor

I work for the newspaper division of E.W. Scripps, and - due to an increased interest in user experience by the execs - our small UX team is tasked with defining the term as it relates to our business as well as defining a strategy for applying UX principles to existing products and new projects.

What a mouthful.

Indexing / storing usability study results

I am working in an organization that is focused on doing quick,
lightweight usability research, especially once the work has a good
foundation: bringing a design into a coffee shop, for example,
running 5 quick (15 minute) studies, making changes, showing 3 more
people the next day, etc.

In this model, I've seen things get revised and re-tested 10 or more

At the same time, there is a formal research organization that would
like to have all the results organized and indexed so they can find
them later.

Java based web frameworks - any experiences regarding flexibility and frontend design?

In the planning of a large scale web application project the following web frameworks has been suggested:


  • JBoss Seam
  • Spring Web Flow
  • Spring MVC
  • JSF
  • PrimeFaces
  • Struts
  • Stripes
  • Tapestry
  • Wicket
  • AppFuse
  • Turbine


My concern as the principal consultant on user experience is to avoid any frameworks with limitations that can compromise our main target, an efficient, user friendly concept. I'm sure you all know my concerns in this regard.

Determining Location

We have several features on our site that are location dependent -- as one
example, we only sell certain products in certain regions. Currently, we ask
people to click on a region in a world map.

We're currently looking at MaxMind:


(was that accurate for you?)

We aren't thinking of relying solely on the results of that in every
context, just trying to make some smarter display decisions.

Two questions:

1.) Does anyone have any experience using any of these services??
ip2location? Maxmind?
