REQ: Suggestions for best-practices or research on single-field address forms

Hi All,

I want to replace the typical 5-field address form (Street 1, Street
2, City, State, Zip) with a single field that takes a string and sends
it to google for geocoding and error-checking.

Anyone know anyone at the AIGA?

Because their site is busted:

Every single link from the front page is 404.
And their 404 page says copyright 2007.

How "high-touch" is IxD (was are we an early indicator...)

This discussion sparked a question I've wondered about for awhile, so
I thought I'd ask the group:

How "high-touch" is the interaction design discipline?

In other words, when I build web development teams, I often find that
my back-end developers can work remotely, almost as much as they want,
as long as I have one or two local senior developers for strategy

On the other hand, I usually need my own designer and usability folks
really close at hand, and work-at-home days for them are usually few
and far between.

are we an early indicator of economic

Our sector certainly SHOULD recover faster. With all the layoffs of real
people, web-based self-service should be very appealing to businesses.

However, each market is dramatically individual so there is no way to
generalize. At a time where it was virtually impossible to find decent
interaction folks in London, Copenhagen's largest shop fired half its staff
(about 80 people).

We've been looking for folks for several months now in various markets we
serve, but with little success.
