surfacing scattered bits of information

I'm working on a health-related project in which users will see information
about a set of conditions/diseases. For each condition, different kinds of
information is provided, including preventive information. The preventive
info itself will consist of a set of recommendations, each consisting of a
header and then a paragraph or more of explanatory text. The recommendations
themselves are grouped into different categories (clinically proven,
promising, early diagnosis, etc.).

Now, I want to enable the user to select any one recommendation and add it
to an action tracker elsewhere.

Forms/processes that show options after choices

Hi everyone

Sorry my title is cryptic - I can't figure out how to describe
what I need in such a small space.

I'm currently designing a complex web form/process that can
potentially ask the respondent to supply quite a lot of
information. 'Potentially' because the majority of respondents do
not have to supply the full set.

Re: Usability on "The Fold"

Does anyone have any thoughts or feedback on what the "new" fold is?

Back in 1999, webmonkey did some work on determining the fold size on common browsers.
They took screenshots of browser chrome from the Netscape 4 browsers all the way up to IE
6, and overlayed them to see how much real estate was left. Here's the article:

They came out with a "safe recommendation" of 983x578 for 1024 screens.

I know Glassdoor.com was discussed on here in June [1].

It is being launched next week in the UK (nice one Jeff!) and the BBC did an
interesting piece on TV this morning with Robert Hohman [2].

Less Ix discussion more economic, but given that it was a heavily Ix/Ux
driven project by one of our peers I thought you'd all be interested.

Twitter mashups / aggregators

I'm designing a Twitter visualization for a blog with multiple contributors.
Each blog contributor also publishes on Twitter, and we need an interface
that integrates:

* each blogger's tweets
* responses to those tweets
* tweets with hash-tag references to the blog

I'd like to know if there are any software packages or online services out
there that already do this kind of integration/aggregation, or if anyone's
seen good examples of custom integrations on the web that could be emulated
or improved upon in a from-scratch implementation.
