"dead" technologies ( Any thoughts on placement of company contact information?

Fax isn't dead, it's just extremely uncool, unhip, un-whatever. Anyone
dealing with businesses outside of the high-tech bubble, businesses
overseas, signed documents or people in the security sphere is probably
going to have some sort of fax capability independent of having an
actual fax machine.

Being able to accept faxes is no worse than being able to accept email,
physical mail, or phone calls. If that's how my customer/client prefers
to communicate with me, so be it.

Omnigraffle question- Masters

How do folks handle Masters (elements that repeat) in Omnigraffle? I'm using
v5.02. Yes there are shared layers, but its not very useful because the xy
coordinates of shared layer are defined in the layer property as well. As a
result of that I can't have Master elements that appear in different
positions on the screen. I now create a new shared layer for each position
of the master- this works ok for smaller projects, but is very frustrating
for larger ones.
Wondering if anyone has come up with a better workaround?

Multi-lingual transactional Web sites

My apologies if this post seems off-topic, but I have a question which falls
into the category of 'user experience' and so here I am...

We are in the process of evaluating a large e-business site for a global
business. Parts of the site are available in languages other than English,
but none of the site's primary transactional functions have been translated:
these are only available in English.

The nature of the service/product being sold is complex. It requires a great
deal of knowledge about the service/product being purchased in order to
complete a transaction.

JOB: Web application developer/prototyper (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada)

Great opportunity for a developer who's jazzed about design/usability/UX and
has the chops to quickly prototype and iterate web apps in a startup

We subscribe to the ³fail early, fail often² and ³serious play² philosophies
here, meaning we like to iterate quickly and burn through design concepts.
In order to do this properly, we need someone who can whip together working
prototypes of our favorite ideas for usability and concept testing, then
help usher the very best to market.

I¹m happy to answer questions.
