Showcase/Portfolio examples

Hi all,

I just came across 37Signals' Sortfolio (http://sortfolio.com/),
which allows users to filter through portfolios.

It reminded me a little of Google's Fast Flip
(http://fastflip.googlelabs.com/), although that interface offers
minimal filtering and meets different user needs.

I'm interested in finding similar interfaces that showcase pages and
allow extensive filtering. Can you think of any more examples? (It'd
be nice if they were as well-executed as Sortfolio, naturally.)

Jeff

Google Fast Flip

"Fast Flip is a new reading experience that combines the best
elements of print and online articles. Like a print magazine, Fast
Flip lets you browse sequentially through bundles of recent news,
headlines and popular topics, as well as feeds from individual top
publishers."
http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/09/read-news-fast-with-google-fast-flip.html

I like the addition of recommended and popularity filters, which I
hope spread to other Google products.

Google Reader: The Good and The Bad

After playing around with Google Reader, yes it is my first time, I
found it to be an amazing web app. However, I also found some awkward
stuff going on, for example:

- Add a subscription button: Searching feeds and adding using one
text field? Doesn't really line up in my mind.

G1 Android - case study in inconsistency

Sorry if I'm rehashing a conversation here, but to my surprise I
haven't seen any G1 debates coming up here from the release this week.

So I'll start....Oh my...what a mess. I really enjoy gizmodo's write up....

The interface is really disconnected, inconsistent, and almost has an
amateur quality to it.

Collaborative HTML Prototyping

I looking for a way of collaborating with a team on producing HTML prototypes.

I'm after something fairly lightweight.

I'd like there to be only a single instance of the prototype (i.e. no
emailing it to eachother).

Anyone got any advice?

Cuil

A new clustering search engine? Wall Street Journal article here: *

It was a little quirky this morning. Even though it comes from three
architects at google, how is it different?
"*Popularity is useful, but has dominated search results so heavily that it
gets harder and harder to find the page you want, especially if your search
is a complex one.

examples of "HUDs" on the web?

Hi all,

Does anyone have any examples of web apps that use "HUDs" or "Heads-Up
Displays" to give the user feedback?

I'm talking a really light HUD here - basically a little rectangle that
comes up in the middle of the screen after the user completes an action,
says something like "Your widget has been deleted", and then fades away
after a couple of seconds.

The idea is to create feedback in the user's locus of attention rather
than somewhere else on the page where they might not be looking.
