emergency harddrive head parking when a sudden fall is detected. Amit

Microsites: Globally Connecting the User to Various Properties

I am designing a website, which links off to many microsites (e.g., product, promotional, etc.) that the client would like to keep intact. Many of these microsites can be assessed through contextual navigation on an appropriate page, but some warrant global access. Would it be appropriate to link these within extra site navigation? The only problem is that extra site navigation seems to work best when it links to other properties/companies (ex: sears.com, att.com, google.com) as opposed to product/promotional microsites.

Improving task flows

I've been trying to add more context to task flows.

I think more context is better, and I'm also gearing up for
documenting asynchronous web apps (RIAs and Ajax).

To add more context to task flows, I've differentiated between active
and passive tasks.

[ Apologies if you receive duplicates -- Jared]


For the last 16 years, I've been a supportive member of the Greater Boston
Chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (GBCACM). They are one
of the oldest chapters in the country and have a history of bringing great
educational programs at a very accessible cost.

This year, they are hosting a 2-day event called Deep AJAX on October 14 &
15 in Cambridge, MA. They've put together a great program that's a great
in-depth introduction to AJAX with some of the world's expert speakers.
