GUI / CLI / Quicksilver -- and voice-based UI

Another thing to consider when looking at things like Quicksilver,
Enso, etc. is how they (or variants on them) might support voice as a
command channel. I think many of us "old hands" expected that voice-
based interfaces would be far more common by 2008 than they are.

Max Number of answers in a poll

Hi there,
Currently I have been analyzing the old e-learning system of a leading
university in Istanbul and elicitating the requirements for a renovated
I came up with a problem lately that none of the customers could specify the
maximum number of answer that a poll in the portal should list. Any ideas?
For a generic poll structure?

How to design a useful FAQs page?

Hi All,

We are in the process of redesign/redo/relaunch our main website
grin.com, and I'll want to have something useful for our FAQ pages to
decrease our support phone calls. I guess if you have a great FAQ
pages the customers don't call you too much.

Can you point to a really well designed and useful FAQ pages or some
related article?

Thanks in advance
Take good care

Muxtape.com's simple interface

Behold: Muxtape.com

Okay, in a nutshell, it's a music sharing site with a bit of a twist -- you
can only share music via playlists that you create and upload to share. Like
the mixtapes of old (old, being the 80s), you're only allowed a certain
number of songs for your playlist. Create an account and check out how
freaking simple the upload interface is. Or, click on one of the user names
on the home page and check out how the playlists are displayed and listened
to. Amazingly simple...
