interaction & data entry before log-in?

Can anyone give examples of websites where users are able to enter
information prior to log-in or becoming a member of the site? Users
would then be prompted to do so when moving to another section of the
site in order to have their data saved. Does anyone know if there is
the capability to show similar prompting when a user types in another
web address or goes to closeout the browser window. We are trying to
address a business requirement.

Any pointers, examples, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Report Back from September NYC IxDG Face 2 Face meeting of the new season

We came out of summer and decided it was time to re-ignite the NYC IxDG F2F
group. When we were doing the planning for September we saw that Brenda
Laurel was going to be speaking at the Parsons School of Design and thought
that it best not to compete with her lecture, but rather join it. [Note: We
only later found out that Aaron Marcus was speaking that very same week at
Parsons. I'm not sure what we might have done differently, but I want to
personally acknowledge this as both people are valued luminaries within the
discipline of IxD and related UX fields.]

[worth reading] "Future of Making" Map, by the INSTITUTE OF THE FUTURE

"Two future forces, one mostly social, one mostly technological, are
intersecting to transform how goods, services, and experiences—the
"stuff" of our world—will be designed, manufactured, and distributed
over the next decade. An emerging do-it-yourself culture of "makers"
is boldly voiding warranties to tweak, hack, and customize the
products they buy. And what they can't purchase, they build from
scratch. Meanwhile, flexible manufacturing technologies on the horizon
will change fabrication from massive and centralized to lightweight
and ad hoc.

Card Sorting with Nested Groups

We're working on the next release of our card sorting analysis software, SynCaps V3 and need a few sites to try out the new 'nested groups' feature on face-to-face, paper-based projects. This allows the kind of hierarchical sorting that many want to do but that few tools support, for example:

Vegetables (group level 1)
-Root Vegetables (group level 2)
--Potatoes (group level 3)
---White Potatoes (item)
---Sweet Potatoes (item)

and so on.
