Search & Results for Superseded/Replacement or Alternative Items

I'm putting together a UI that enables people to search for alternates and
replacement items. The main use case is:

"I have item X - show me if it is valid. If not, show me the alternatives".

Does anyone have any good examples of online (web apps) that deal with this
nicely from a UI perspective?

The trick here, to me, is that the UI needs to clearly show that the
original item (the one the person searched for) is or isn't valid. If it
isn't valid, displaying the alternatives in a clear manner.

There are some other minor constraints that I'm dealing with as well...

Event:10/28 NYC UPA - Will Website Usability Decide the 2008 Presidential Election?

NYC Usability Professionals Association presents:

*Usability Research on Undecided Voters:
Will Website Usability Decide the 2008 Presidential Election?*

In an age of media overload, how do undecided voters make up their minds in
the upcoming election? Do Web savvy Americans turn to the Web for answers
and if so, how much influence do the candidates' Websites have? Could the
usability of the Obama & McCain sites have a significant impact on the way
people perceive each candidate?

Of course, no discussion about workflow would be relevant without
understanding the content that is being created in that workflow.

IOW, are folks just creating drawings with the most basic of
annotations, or is there more complex descriptions and narrative flow
from page to page with text? Do the drawings need to be repurposed for

spirit of Leonardo da Vinci and the age of a new Renaissance.
Below is a selection of presentations which made a lasting impression on me.

Creating a proposal for field research

Hey there,

I've been tasked with the job of writing a proposal to my supes to convince
the powers that be that field research will give real results and show true
value to all involved stake holders. I'd love to gain some insights from
others who had to do the selling of this great idea to people who just don't
get it at all.

Background: I work for a very business driven company.
