Single Page Checkout

I did a search here and couldn't find any discussions on this topic.

I am doing research on the pros and cons and best practices of Single Page Checkout. Most of the stuff I am finding seems to be from around 2009, when Single Page Checkout was both in vogue and having a backlash. So now that it's 2012, what do people think about Single Page Checkout? In 2009, it seems that the Gap was nearly the only Top 500 retailer using it, how many are using it now? Are there any recent conversion studies (hopefully from large retailers)?

Continuing education of us ux practitioners

Hi all,

"We're looking for double threat: interaction design and visual design."

"We're looking for stronger visual skills."

"What's interaction design?"

"What widgets have you created?"

Do these snippets sound familiar, yet?

I'm about to start my formal training in graphic/visual design at The
New England Institute of Art (http://www.artinstitutes.edu/boston.

Starts 30 October 08 in Brookline MA.

Yours in lifeboat learning,

Validity of Hit Counts

One of the organizations I volunteer for get "hit counts" from Go Daddy
for its website (www.rutlandhistory.com <http://www.rutlandhistory.com/>

We are getting about 20,000 hits a month.

How many of these hits can I believe to be searchers, rather than
spiders, etc?

Is there any way to tell?

Thanks for the help!

designing for industry standards

I work in the healthcare industry and we are prepping to convert our
electronic health record to use industry-standard data structures for ease
of data exchange.

My question is whose responsibility is it to maintain knowledge of the
standard(s) to ensure that all the required data elements are captured? Is
it the IxDs, a separate organizational "standards guru" that acts as a
consultant to the IxDs, someone else, all of the above?
