Displaying multiple filters on a page

I'm wireframing a "resource library" for a client right now and am
struggling with presentation. They have numerous presentations,
documents, etc. that need to be easily searchable and sortable via their
public web site.

The requirements are...

* Must have a keyword search option

* Must be able to sort by topic

* Must be able to sort by the resource type (PPT, Document,
Webinar, etc.)

Here's a site where we've included filters for Topic and Type, but I
feel like adding a search box will clutter the interface too much and
confuse users.

adding nodes to a navigation tree?

For an intranet application I am working on, there is a navigation tree. It
looks similar to this one:


Users must be able to add nodes to it. The nodes could be added anywhere,
not just at the end of an existing level.

interactions magazine

The March+April 2008 issue of interactions magazine has emerged from
the printer and should be appearing in subscribers' mailboxes soon.

As subscribers and other recipients have seen from the
January+February 2008 issue, the magazine now has a very different
look and feel, and content that reflects a new vision.

Looking for feedback on a functional banner that is always there and pinned to bottom of the browser - not context driven.

Does anyone have any experience with an "always there" functional
banner that is pinned to the bottom of the browser? An example of
this is at http://www.houselogic.com/

It seems of little use to me as it is redundant to
information/function that is already on the site, takes up real
estate and is more a distraction than anything else. Maybe with some
additional context driven function there might be something there,
but the CEO here liked it so I'm doing my due diligence. I can't
remember seeing anything like it before.

Thanks -

Survey on Prototype—chance for a free copy of the book

I'm looking for some input on different techniques and tools people
are using, as well as issues they've run into with prototyping.

Here's your opportunity to provide some input and have a chance at a
free copy of the prototyping book, expected later this year. I've got
a short, 5 page, survey — answer all the questions and you'll be
entered into a random drawing for a free copy of the book.

A Study on how End User's perceive change

Hey guys,
I am planning a study which aims to answer how end user's perceive change.
'Change' here could be upgrading of a software ( e.g. MS word 2003 to MS
word 2007), OS, switching between similar applications (e.g. MS Expression
Web to Dreamweaver) etc. I am currently trying to find similar studies from
backgrounds such as Behavioral Psych, Computer Science, HCI etc.

Has anyone conducted similar studies? Could anyone point me to any
studies/books/papers that could be related to this?

MS-HCI @ Georgia Tech
