live chat best pratices

Is anyone here aware of any research regarding best practices for
implementing live chat on the web? I'm also interested in hearing
well-reasoned opinions and seeing examples.

For example, I've visited several sites that automatically open a live chat
window if the user has been inactive on a page for over a certain length of
time. To me, this seems like a poor experience for a couple of reasons. I
think most users like to research online because it offers time, privacy,
and quietness. On the web, there are no sales people popping up to ask if
you need any help.

Facial recognition authentication

There's at least one laptop floating around there that replaces the need for
a login password with the image of your face. Do you have any experience
with such a thing? How'd it work out for you?
I am so tired of typing passwords.

UX Weekly, Take 2

UX Weekly is on its 44th edition, but I've been tinkering with what it's trying to accomplish, and how to accomplish it. 

The newsletter is subscribeable at uxwkly.com, and my thinking for it is available on my blog.

I'd love to hear your thoughts, opinions, critiques, and recommendations.

Just to get you interested:

Who would you like to see in a Debate?

I found this from 37signals quite interesting about not being enough debate
at web conferences.


I wanted to have some fun with this, at the same time use it as opportunity
to expand my knowledge network by asking you guys here, who from the UX
community would you pit up against each other and why? They don't have to
be well known names, just someone with a blog that we can reference and see
their viewpoints.
