Pogo-stick navigation


Can anyone point me to research done on the effectiveness or non-effectiveness of the "pogo-stick" model of navigation, that is, navigation that forces users to return to a central page to find all possible choices.

I do have UIE's white paper,Are the Product Lists on Your Site Reducing Sales? which addresses the issues of pogo-stick navigation with regards to online sales. I'm looking for additional research and would appreciate any references of which you might be aware.

Best Regards,
Jim Griesemer

Graffiti & IXD

I'm a retired graffiti writer, pioneer of this type of manifestation
in Lisbon, Portugal, at the same time that I've graduated in
communication design (1999).

After graduation and one year in Prague I have quitted practicing, the
mercantilist society that we live in take over graffiti in Lisbon,
cans clothes even mass media adopted the language, and the dream of 10
young creative minds (that I was one) was drown by the incontrollable
mass of new writers that without any criteria made many mistakes
transforming Lisbon as many other cities full of visual noise that
have plasticity but associate

best online survey apps?

I'm going to be setting up an online survey for a
select group of users. I'd like the survey to be kind
of "smart" ie. being able to have selections and
rankings in 1-4 question affect what gets shown in the
last question to assist in ranking.

If you have worked with anything like this or any
online survey apps, let me know and I'll gather and
repost to the list.

Early-bird-priced ticket for Interaction12

Hello IxDA peeps,

Long time no speak! Hope everybody's doing very well. I have an early-bird-priced ticket (575 euros) for Interaction12 that it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to use. I'm heart-broken to break my streak of attending all the Interaction conferences to date, but c'est la vie....Transferring registration from me to you is perfectly OK according to the conference website.
