Expressing levels of achievement/reputation (eBay stars)

We all know eBay stars - different stars denote accumulated reputation
or "feedback score".

I like Ebay's colored star icon system because it's more elegant
and more subtle than, say, a "five star" hotel/restaurant system.
It's more like a karate belt color ladder.

But can levels be expressed in yet subtler ways? What other graphic
elements can be used?

[PLUG] A World Without Borders - understanding the value of content in context

Perhaps Mark Mothersbaugh of DEVO said it best:
"Freedom of choice is what you got...freed from choice is what you want."

As the world wide web continues to grow and mature at an exponential pace, the experiential quality of online information searching fails to keep pace because our content strategies focus too much on inclusion and reach, not enough on context.

Understanding data from ClickDensity/CrazyEgg to help on redesign

I have a doubt about those Click Tracking apps and I would like to know your
experiences about that

I need to create a method, a logic to understand those numbers/graphics from
ClickDensity and comparing them with WebTrends data or Google Analytics.

Does anyone knows an article or something that could help?

Thoughts on UXmap

A few months ago I was looking for a local design consultancy in Japan, and had trouble finding one. I thought it would have been great if design and UX-related information is organized geographically. I came up with UXmap.com and began providing local UX information about consultancies, labs, vendors, conferences, education, associations, events, and jobs. I can see how it supports needs of both design and UX people as well as their stakeholders. What do you think? Is there a need for this?

Agile & UCD (was Thoughts on AlanCooper'sKeynote)

Ugh, that last part was worded wrong:

You could do this pre-work in time it takes to do 2-3 development sprints. But, you have explored more designs then you ever would have been able to in over a dozen development sprints.

That should have sad:
You could do this pre-work in time it takes to do 2-3 development sprints. Without this prework, it would take you over a dozen development sprints to explore the same design space.

Column Heading Alignment Rules for PlacementofData

It's how the company's default email system behaves right now. It's not
ideal or widely used, but also not completely foreign.

Those who don't venture that far (who assume as you would that you can only
click twice to sort) will perhaps learn that it takes 4 clicks (instead of
3) to get back to "sort ascending" which, unless I'm mistaken, is not a very
common use case.

How would you propose the user return to the default sort method, if it's
not known or easily understood?
