Flash designer needed (freelance)

This person must be in SF. It will be a combination of remote work & onsite meetings.
We currently have a project that requires a flash artist/developer. We need a flash presentation on our website for a product demo, which is a mobile phone sports game.

This is just freelance work and will require 2-3 weeks worth of work, but will lead to more work.

Looking for a camcoder

Hi everyone,

I am looking for a camcoder to record users in the hospital. As I
might need to do some night recordings as well, I definitely need a
camcoder with a night shot feature for recordings with 0 lux (which
means a infrared recording). Another requirement is a standard audio
in, to be able to connect any kind of microphone (in opposite to
Sony's "Active interface Shoe).

Usability of Multicolumn text

I have been often confronted with the question of how end-users feel
about multi-column text. For an example, look at http://www.apple.com/
pro/profiles/jwtwo/. Visually, it can be very beatiful, but then
someone always asks whether or not people are willing to scroll up
and down for an article. I don't know. As a gut reaction, most people
we talk to internally think that this should be avoided. Has anyone
done any testing around this or have a particularly strong opinion?

Improving Word's outlining feature

What would you do to improve Word's outlining feature?
(First, I'll be interested to find out if everyone means the same thing when
they refer to Word's "outlining feature.")
Thanks, Jack

Audio feedback in HTML-based web applications

Hi all,

I am wondering if anyone has any thoughts/ideas/research on audible feedback
in modern web applications. The reason I ask is that it seems to me these
days that audio tends to be largely ignored, especially with the recent push
for more DHTML/AJAX/Javascript-based applications (as opposed to
Flash-platform-based apps). Is this partially because the technology just
doesn't readily support it? (Though Flash does, and there are workarounds
for the issue, like this one:
