Flex and the Halo model

Anyone on the list used Macromedia Flex and the "Halo experience model"?

I am working on a project where we are either going to build our own visual
gui toolkit / interface spec in flash or adopt the Halo model with some
changes. Our development group can handle the server client relationship
of things usining jsp's or the flex model. What I am trying to acertain is
if we can reduce the amount of custom "gui" design while preserving and
developing good interaction for the project we are working on.

What's new at CHI this year?

I'm the Technical Program Chair for CHI2006, and I thought this list would
be interested in some of the new things we are doing this year that should
make CHI a "can't miss" experience.

First, CHI is in Montreal, a beautiful city, full of French food, old world
ambience, and beautiful spring weather. The dates are April 24-27, plus two
days of preconference activities (workshops and a Doctoral Consortium).

We've made a lot of changes to the conference this year, primarily to make
it more attractive to practitioners.

Recruiting research participants

My client is a news and entertainment site that is considering
expanding their focus from a single genre to covering a variety of
related/overlapping genres (sci-fi, horror, mystery, etc.).
Accordingly, in addition to their own user base, they want to conduct
research with fans of related genres. I'm looking for a firm that can
help me screen and recruit participants and handle scheduling
logistics. Would be great if they are in the New York area, but not
required. Any recommendations?

Examples of engaging privacy policies / terms of engagement

Seen any privacy policies, credit card policies, terms of engagement, service agreements etc that don't just make your eyes glaze over and turn the page?

We're looking for examples (web based or paper based) where people manage to make this legalese heavy, text heavy interaction a positive one, or at least one that people don't just skip over.

Board Positions

As a current board member and our treasurer I want to encourage everyone
to consider joining the board, especially colleagues from outside the
US. Board membership is a great experience.

With the help of this growing community we are trying to build a home
for the development of the discipline and a place for each of us to
grow, network and learn.

Statistics about user drop offs when faced with unencrypted site message from the browser

Has anyone come across statistics or observations in user studies about how
people react to the Security Warning message (The information you have
entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be
read by a third party.)

I have a client whose site elicits this message when people are answering
quiz questions. They do not consider the tombstone information (name,
address, email etc...) to be the kind of information that requires
encryption. Financial information, passwords etc...
