Video Collaboration

Hi,

I am on a project that involves cross-location collaboration, and
I'm looking for a video tool to allow me to sketch on *paper* in
real time, and broadcast what I'm doing to my own computer screen.

I have a webcam which I have jimmy-rigged to shoot downward to my
desk. We use screen-sharing programs (WebEx, etc), so I have that
covered.

Data of lift provided by good UI

Hey folks I am sure this have been covered before, but I am not
finding any old threads with it.

I need to provide data showing the increased value of a well thought
out user interface/user experience.

The data I am looking for is general. "Providing a well designed
user experience shows "xx"% increase ....."

If there needs to be more focus:
We are using the data pertaining to a purchasing experience. It is in
the realm of a shopping cart-ish product.

Thanks

Microsoft bing.com reactions

Well, Microsoft is spending a lot of money hyping up Bing.com

I've found the results to be pretty good, and Bing Travel (formerly
Faircast) is also a very nice feature, but what about the bing.com
interface?

What does everyone think of the IxD in regards to the initial page
and the results pages?
