New classes in NYC from SmartEx

Smart Experience is a new school in New York City offering
classes for Internet professionals. We intend to cover
state-of-the-art topics taught by the most experienced people in
town. The school is organized as a marketplace, so you can tell
us what classes you want us to offer, and what classes you want
to teach. Learn more... http://smartexperience.org/

You'll notice we don't yet have any classes focused on

animation patterns for things moving

I'm looking for good examples of an item moving from one place to another and how to make that clear to the user. The specific example is a selected line within a grid; the user will click an "accept" button on that line, and then the item will leave the grid of items to be reviewed and appear in a grid of approved items. Has anyone seen a nice animation that could help make it clear what is happening?

iPhone UI as HTML

If anyone out there has tried jQTouch - http://jqtouch.com/ - you might have reacted as I did - initial excitement, followed by increasing frustration. It makes for a great demo - a web app with rich iPhone look-and-feel on any device. It's implementation, however, is clearly still in beta.

In particular:

- It only uses CSS3 properties for webkit, and doesn't define the other variants (mozilla, etc.)

protocol for testing domain/brand recall

We think our client's proposed name for their application is hard to remember. 
How do we prove it?
Looking for a simple testing protocol or article on same... any suggestions most welcome, thanks!

(for detail: their proposed name is both a new verb form based on an adjective (eg "surprisify") and a spelling variant of what you'd expect the spelling to be (eg "surprizify") (those aren't the real words, but it gives you an idea).
