Joining an association: ASIS&T or STC?

I'm interested in joining a professional association and I've narrowed
it down to ASIS&T or STC (can only do one this year). ASIS&T looks
great, but I'm wondering if it has more of a technical focus than what
I'm currently 'qualified' for (don't want to sign up for something I
can't understand). Then, maybe it would help me narrow my focus and grow
my knowledge base.

STC also looks interesting and seems a little more broad. I'm not sure
which is best.

iPhone Pinch Interaction - useful?

Dear All,

When the pinch interaction was demo-ed with iPhone, I had a pretty
positive response, but as I thought more about it and discussed with a
few colleagues around, I am not sure if that kind of interaction would
be very useful in a small device, or any other device where only one
hand is used.

I see interactions like sliders, scrollbars, light switches, joysticks
etc.. where people control the "degree" of something.. These are what
people are used to, where one end is fixed and other can be dragged to
control the value.

Horizontal Grouping GUI

I've been charged with designing a horizontal version of the attached graphic.

Think of the 'Conditions' area like the white text box where you type your search query in Google.

Pictured are 2 groups of items. The outer group (colored blue) has a right border that is blue with vertical lines and a triangle. This indicates it is an AND group. The inner group (colored green) has right border that is orangish with diagonal lines and a half-circle. This indicates it is an OR group.

Data on "back to top" links

Does anyone have any data on the effectiveness of "back to top" links?
Are they any better than just scrolling back up?

Best regards,

How to help a new employee to get started

I am looking for insight and best practices to how to help a new designer
get started with the team, company and the product. I haven't been in a
situation where I was responsible for this so I am slightly at a loss.

How do you approach getting a new designer familiar with everything. What is
a good way to spend the first day? What is a good day to spend the first
week? Is there anything you ask them to do specifically to benefit from
their fresh status?
