Is "By invitation only" a better way to get converts to your service in a marketplace with an established player?

I guess the trend was started by Gmail ...you couldn't just sign up
and start using, you had to have an invitation. The same concept is
being used by "Jaiku" and "Pownce".

Does this feeling of exclusivity drive more converts to a new service
in a marketplace with an already established player?

Hiring woes, searching for the best

This might be just a NYC thing ... but I think I'm seeing signs elsewhere
...
Is it my imagination or is it getting really hard to get top-tier talent to
work in-house?

It just seems to me that everyone (almost everyone) is moving to create
their own consultancy. I can't think of a single "guru" in the field who is
in-house (not working for a consultancy theirs or a big name) anymore.
What's w/ dat?! Many of them have recently made the switch from in-house to
consultancy in what could be perceived as a mass evacuation.

I can see a few things that may be causing this:

Portfolio questions

I have a couple of questions. Say, in the hypotethical, a-hem, case that I
were to prepare a IxD portfolio that could be presented to a US employer.
There would be some cultural differences (I'm european) and I would want to
steer clear of the worst mess-ups.

1. Where I am from, its expected that you are somewhat modest and you expect
that the reader "reads between the lines". This is of course just a social
contract. Same or different in the US?

2. What about tone of voice? I'm not going to be flippant, but how dry do I
have to be?

3. How big?

I will be giving a talk tomorrow evening for the Hamburg chapter of the Interaction Design Association on 'The Psychology of Nerdiness and Its Impact on User-Centred Design' (similar to the one I gave at the UPA in London earlier this year).

Representing visually the reasoning behind the sitemap.

This might be a good time to use a storyboard or comic representation of key
use scenarios. Those can embody all of the UX research/rationale and also
how that translates into pathways in the site. You could also try site path
diagramming (see Wodtke p.
