Can anyone suggest an alternative to accordions that breaks a workflow into chunks but still allows the user to have multiple sections open at a time?

"Way Out" vs "Exit" - Signage usability and passenger experience

Vancouver, Canada recently opened a new subway system called "Canada
Line" (http://www.canadaline.ca). While I notice quite a few issues
in the whole passenger experience, one thing that makes me wonder the
most is the exit sign: instead of printing "Exit", they use "Way
Out". My thoughts:

- "Exit" is almost the international standard word to indicate an
exit route.

Looking for great examples of customer reviews for ecommerce.

Hi,    I'm looking to collect some best practice examples to feed into a ratings and reviews project I'm working on for an ecommerce site in the UK. Can you think of any great examples - maybe something you've seen or something you've done you wouldn't mind sharing. 

  Thanks in advance for your help.   Cheers

Basic time tracking and invoicing for a solo consultant

I'm neck-deep in looking at various options for doing basic time tracking
and invoicing just for me, not a whole agency. I've wasted a ton of time on
this and figured I'd tap the collective wisdom here.
Up until about a year ago I used a pretty simple timer on my Treo and an
Excel spreadsheet for the invoices.

Identifying Stakeholder Requirements

project. This may include the individual(s) authorizing the project
as well as the folks who will actually be using the application. Once
you have identified the stakeholders, at a minimum, you'll need to
get answers to the following questions:

Do grid systems also apply to application interfaces?

Hi All,

I'm very interested in hearing your opinion/experience on the
followig:

For content sites a grid system can be used to give the page a clean
and consistent layout.

Do grid systems also work/exist for application interfaces?

My own opinion:
I think this does not work since application interfaces are not very
likely to be layed out in columns, but rather in functional spaces.

Hope to hear from you.
