Helloooo Austin! Meetup Thurs., Jan 20th at 6pm, Location TBD

People of Austin,

I'm blowing through Austin Thursday, January 20th, and it would be great to
catch local IxD and other design nuts alike. We could call it Interaction
Conference pre-game ahead of the main event in Savannah :-). How about Happy
Hour at a favorite local spot? We could start the fun at 6:00pm.

Please let me know (a) if you are around and (b) suggestions for a place.

See y'all soon,
- Nasir

looking for examples of tag hierarchies or nested tags

I am looking for examples of web applications or site that use
hierarchical tags or nested tags. For example, I've found that
delicious.com has "tag bundles" which lets the user group related
tags and see all items tagged with anything in that bundle.

Are there other examples you know of that let the user build and use
tags within tags?

SurveyGizmo and popups for customer satisfaction survey?

I have not implemented these on a site, but my experience with them as
a user has been very negative. The "Would you like to take a
survey?" dialogue immediately calls to mind every time I've ever
agreed to take a survey in real life, and been promised it would
"only take 2 minutes," and ten minutes later I'm still standing

Web: Modals on a form

What are your thoughts on employing modals on a form.

In addition, should modals be used for inputs that are required for one particular context of the form, whether certain criteria is met? (In which case, the modal would be shown automatically, based on the user's context and input.)

Might it be better to just put the fields inline with the form, but grayed out, depending on the context?

Or better to insert the fields inline, near the UI elements that might trigger the need for those fields to be present?

Any options I might be missing here?
