Mega Drop-Down Navigation menus

Hi all,

I’m putting together some recommendations for using mega drop-down
navigation.

http://www.useit.com/alertbox/mega-dropdown-menus.html

I’m interested in the opinion of the iXDA list on whether the
top-level navigation items should lead to pathway (or landing) pages,
or whether they can simply act as non-hyperlink triggers to the
drop-down (so no hand cursor)?

Also, if there is no pathway page, how should this impact breadcrumb
trails?

For instance:

Home > Sports > Windsurfing

- Should ‘Sport

Changing role of user research in the UX design process?

During the Interactions 13 conference in Toronto, Paul Adams of Facebook advocated a radically different development cycle than the "ideal" user-centered one (qualitative user research first, then modelling and concept development, followed by prototyping, testing, and iteration).

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.

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.

Persona creation tools

I am wondering if except for the already well known, whiteboard, sticky notes, markers and large sheets of paper are there any digital tools available to facilitate the collection/analysis of data, creation of personas and of course of scenarios in a shared environment?!

If you are not aware of such a tool, what are the pieces of software that you'd use together in order to satisfy such goals?!

I have found a couple of videos showcasing a prototype for a touch responsive interface created at Stanford that aims at becoming such a tool
