Sequoia, Diebold Voting Machines

So, when anyone voted today, or in the past weeks, did you use either
the Sequoia or Diebold electronic voting machines?

I voted in D.C. this morning, where each polling place has at least (or
maybe exactly) one Sequoia AVC Edge voting machine (
product=AVC%20Edge&type=Introduction ) and found the user experience
left a lot to be desired; it wasn't even equal to the farecard machines
at the D.C.

live chat best pratices

Is anyone here aware of any research regarding best practices for
implementing live chat on the web? I'm also interested in hearing
well-reasoned opinions and seeing examples.

For example, I've visited several sites that automatically open a live chat
window if the user has been inactive on a page for over a certain length of
time. To me, this seems like a poor experience for a couple of reasons. I
think most users like to research online because it offers time, privacy,
and quietness. On the web, there are no sales people popping up to ask if
you need any help.

recording interviews

hi guys! I've been a lurker, but i figured i'd chime in on this.
i did a LOT of research on recording phone interviews. and i finally
got it figured out.

In order to figure this out, i tried the following: skype, jk audio
recording device, paid conference call services.

And here's the best:

1. I used a free conference calling service called
freeconferencecalls.com, but they are now basement ventures. still a
great service and FREE.
