Corporate Web Sites with Diverse Product Set

Does anyone have any favorite examples of corporations who do a good
job of presenting a broad and diverse product set on their
public-facing web site? I'm particularly interested in techniques to
get their audience to desired content, using innovations such as
showing bundled solutions by client segment or location (or both).

good interface examples for web basedapplications

As I said in my first post on this subject I have been intimately involved
in CMS UI design for the last 3 years.

Mitja, e-mailed me privately that EMC was meant to be ECM as in Enterprise
Content Management. I suggest people use the term CMS b/c a silly company
decided to buy the biggest vendor of CMS and their name is EMC ... Silly
name people.

Saying that designers are upset with CMS is like going to the prom and
saying the decorations stink and complaining about the band and the food
when you decided to have nothing to do with the preparation.

Where have we been?

Are you going to Interaction09? Let your networks know!

It takes more than amazing content and speakers to make a conference.
It's all of us who gather that take it over the top.

So, in that light, if you are going, start encouraging your friends and
esteemed colleagues to join you!

Here are a couple of easy ways to get the word out:

Let your network know you're attending...share the event!

C'mon, so easy.

How do people use applications differently from expected?

I seem to remember that in an earlier post Robert mentioned that users will
not always utililse an application as expected, for example, using a wiki as
a project management tool.

When our company got a Confluence wiki I initially considered creating a
space for a group of users but decided against it because there was no
navigation menu. I later discovered there was a left navigation menu plug-in
and saw other sites using the left nav with a Search above it.

[event] IxDA Boston UX Show & Tell

Do you have... - A nagging design problem? - An interesting new technique? - A crazy idea that needs validation?

Do you need... - A comfortable place to get friendly feedback? - Practice giving or receiving design critique? - Free pizza and drinks?

UX Show & Tell is a casual workshop that's all about the work. Show shortcuts. Ask what to annotate in a wireframe. Draft scenarios and user stories, and identify one from the other.

pattern or feature inventory (as in content inventory)

I appreciate the responses so far.

Allow me to reframe this question: I am looking for a method to capture and
present interactive elements on a competitor's site.
I'm thinking of an interaction designer's version of the IA's content
inventory. I want to inventory interactive features, rather than content
and links. Any ideas?

For example, in a previous job I had TechSmith's Morae(R) which would allow
me to capture dynamic aspects of an interaction, or an entire experience. I
do not have Morae now.

Interaction models for countering spam on blogs


Has anyone else noticed that comments on Boxes & Arrows have basically

I realize that B&A had a bad spam attack and even shut down commenting for a
spell while they set up a system to require authentication in order to
create comments. The authentication system they chose is supposedly
something that other bloggers can tap into (if they subscribe to it), but
not many have from what I have seen.

Having recently faced this problem recently I have taken a slightly
different path. The one that requires you to read an unOCRable (scanable)
graphic and type in the string.

Boston IxDA: jQuery for designers follow-up

Hi Folks, thanks to all those that came to our September event. For those
that could not make it, John delivered a talk that first introduced the
basics and then walked seamlessly through ever increasing degrees of power
up to 'I dont know why you'd want to do this.. but you can' (o;
John has put the content up here

Since the presentation I've read yet more articles declaring jQuery as the
defacto js library of choice.
