Homepage w/o Navigation Bar

All -

I am looking for websites that do not display navigation (in the traditional sense) on the homepage. Yes, any link could be considered navigation but I am specifically looking for sites that lack navigation until the user is deeper within the site structure.

What are your thoughts on this presentation? Could this be a jarring or unexpected experience? 

Example 1: www.tumblr.com

openBC.com Design Competition

Some of you may be familiar with the Design Competition that
openBC.com has going on. You can read all about it on the competition
website:
http://opendesign.openbc.com

I am very much against design competitions and spec work for our
industry.

URLs without 'www' - having them work anyway

Morning,

Just noticed on one of our major web properties (1 of our 2 most important
in fact) the site gives an IIS "under construction" notice instead of
resolving to the site proper at the www space. I sent this in as a problem,
that the site should still work correctly (and should not be hard with a
.Net site, I don't think). While not common, people do tend to key urls in
sometimes that way (especially geeks).

I have a feeling I may get some pushback on this, I'm wondering if anyone
has any statistics or articles or whatever that might help me back up the
case.

Smart Filtering for Usability Requests

Hey,

This is a very interesting problem that I was asked to find a solution for
from my usability team lead.

Problem: We have a web form on our intranet which different teams can fill
out to request usability work. Currently the form is primarily textfields
asking for information about the project. The different project teams fill
these out without restriction.The team lead is receiving some forms that
have not much of a usability nature to them.

Intranet Best Practices Report (free!)

Aplogies for the cross postings but I thought some of you would find
this interesting -

We just published an intranet best practices report here at Avenue A |
Razorfish. This 43 page report discusses intranet maturity, trends and
best practices. It also includes ideas to steal from the consumer world.
It's a free report and can be downloaded at
http://avenuea-razorfish.com/enterprisesolutions/

Take a look and let me know if you have any feedback or thoughts for a
future version.

Thanks!

Shiv

The Black Art of Usability

One of my favorite whitepapers is The Essence of Effective Rich Internet Applications by Kevin Mullet of Macromedia (2003). It provides a nice POV relevant to UX, Design and IA related disciplines. One thing that always stuck with me was this portion of it:

“Usability has always been the most difficult quality to instill in software design. It sits at the
junction of form and function to constrain and inform the design of both aspects of the
product.
