Are you going to the IA summit? Got time to kill friday?

I hope that subject line was clear enough to catch the right folks and
not annoy the wrong...

If you haven't anything planned Friday, I'm helping a major newspaper do
a little brainstorming with as many smart folks as we can round up.
There will be a present, and a chance to influence old media to be
smarter than new media at new media's game. And there will be a little
present for those who attend the brainstorm.

Interface Design Sites anyone?

Hi Brett,
There are groups on flickr that post screen captures of specific user
interfaces. It's a great resource for ideas, inspriation and
guidance. Maybe this is what you were looking for?

Hack your own usability studio (long recipe, low price)

At work we use Morae (http://techsmith.com/morae.asp) for user
testing. Quirks aside, it works pretty well.

The other day all our copies of Morae were busy and I needed a way to
let colleagues observe the use of a website in the room next door.
Basic requirements were:

1. a computer that the user would browse from (PC or Mac, it didn't matter)
2. some way to show what was on the user's screen on another computer
3. video of the user (one or more)
4. audio of what the user was doing

Column Heading Alignment Rules for PlacementofData

It's how the company's default email system behaves right now. It's not
ideal or widely used, but also not completely foreign.

Those who don't venture that far (who assume as you would that you can only
click twice to sort) will perhaps learn that it takes 4 clicks (instead of
3) to get back to "sort ascending" which, unless I'm mistaken, is not a very
common use case.

How would you propose the user return to the default sort method, if it's
not known or easily understood?
