Searching People: Best Practices

Hi All,

Currently have some questions about searching an internal directory
of 20,000+ people.

There's some thinking that a Google appliance utilizing a white bar
with rich search capability (parameters / facets on particular
attributes) would be enough to narrow down to who you're looking

There's an opposing thought that an advanced search is required
Upfront for searching by a particular first name, last name, company
name, etc.

We don't have capacity to build both.

White, Jeff

Is the IXDA a well-kept secret? (was:InterestingArticle About Usability as a Career in New York Times.)

I'm a member of UPA as well. My perception is that UPA is actually less
focused than IxDA.

>From their site:

"The UPA supports those who promote and advance the development of
usable products, reaching out to people who act as advocates for
usability and the user experience. Members come from across the broad
family of disciplines that create the user experience. We invite you to
network in our community."

An interaction designer easily fits this mission statement.
