[EVENT] Next IxDA Brisbane event, 27 Oct 2009


What made the Sopranos finale one of the most-talked-about events in
television history? Why is sudoku so addictive and the iPhone so
irresistible? What do Jackson Pollock and Lance Armstrong have in common
with theoretical physicists and Buddhist monks?

This month IxDA Brisbane is teaming up with UX Book Club Brisbane (
http://uxbookclub.org/doku.php?id=brisbane) to host a friendly and no doubt
lively discussion around E.

You may be right that email is not ideal for "communities," but I'm not sure that the organization's goal of creating a community is what most people use this (or any) discussion list/forum for most of the time.

Sources for online help tool: FAQ and "helpdesk" combined


I'm currently searching for a usable user interface solution for an
online "help tool", which would combine FAQ and helpdesk at company.com.
The idea is to offer so simple and tempting user interface to FAQ,
that users would prefer that to sending the e-mail.

I guess the problem is quite universal among web sites, but so far, I
have found no good examples of how to implement this.

Email Of Overwhelming Persuasion on hand if there's trouble).

Here are the best references I found.
