3D Navigation

Hi All,

I'm looking for examples of 3D navigation where a user can move free form within visual objects or data, particularly in the area of search or within a use case of finding specific information. (I think this is a poor interface for this type of scenario btw, looking to talk a client out of it.) Two I can think of are PicLens and Google Earth.

Leaderboard on Home Page Question


I'm looking for some advice. I work for small and medium sized news
and information websites and we recently received the request to use a
leaderboard ad spot in the header of the site home page, instead of a
smaller ad spot. I would prefer to continue to use leaderboards on
article or section fronts, but not on the home page.

starring an item

Do you think 'starring' a favourite item become a standard design pattern?
It's used by firefox, google, twitter...

Has anyone done any user research on this? I think it's probably understood
by the very web literate but hasn't yet crept out into the wider world.

Interested to know your thoughts,
