Expressing levels of achievement/reputation (eBay stars)

We all know eBay stars - different stars denote accumulated reputation
or "feedback score".

I like Ebay's colored star icon system because it's more elegant
and more subtle than, say, a "five star" hotel/restaurant system.
It's more like a karate belt color ladder.

But can levels be expressed in yet subtler ways? What other graphic
elements can be used?

Beautiful Concept Modelling/Visualisation

http://vimeo.com/2696386 uses iconography and monochromatic design elements
to explain the history of the web. Beautiful work which is inspiring for
Ix/Ux documentation.

In Need of Useful Resources


This website is pretty great! I have recently become very interested in interactive design. I am interested in the way people use technology and the internet. 

I am studying Information Science and Technology in school, and that's about as close a degree as I could get. There is a Graphic Design program, but that is more on the actual Photoshop use etc, and would have taken me too long to complete anyways.

To be honest - I don't think I'd try that technique. Never seen
attempts to specify usability standards via contract to be effective
in any way.

Conference: FITC '07 (originally 'Flash In The Can')

FITC '07 (originally 'Flash In The Can')

I've never been - looks very eye-candyish, but wanted to get a better
sense from folks who are NOT responsible for just visual design where
they work (but other aspects of design), on whether or not this is
worthwhile. Do you recommend it? Why?

Online Card Sort PLUS architecture

Hi all! It's been a while since I've been active here. I'm jumping into the pool of online research tools. I'm looking for a tool that will allow card sort capability but also capture architecture suggestions. so, not just sorting shoes into flats and heels but also understanding the cognitive map of the larger site and how one might think about getting from a list of shoes to a list of purses and accessories, etc. 

Has anyone seen a tool like that? I've looked at websort.net and a few others, but they just allow categorization not architecture.
