Zygote Interactive Ball

We have posted about our project in the past but now we have a video
to share.
The video was shot by the organization in charge of BIP.
This is just the beginning of this idea.

Card Sorting with Nested Groups

We're working on the next release of our card sorting analysis software, SynCaps V3 and need a few sites to try out the new 'nested groups' feature on face-to-face, paper-based projects. This allows the kind of hierarchical sorting that many want to do but that few tools support, for example:

Vegetables (group level 1)
-Root Vegetables (group level 2)
--Potatoes (group level 3)
---White Potatoes (item)
---Sweet Potatoes (item)

and so on.

Re: Professional development; employer expectations

I definitely agree with you on the creativity and inspiration part.

Part of the reason that I left my last job is that I wanted to publish a use case and make a presentation on some of our findings, but had no support or interest from senior management.

Question about display of date select functionality

I need some help.

I am working on an application that requires the user to select a
start and stop date. This function is similar to a travel sites'
Depart Date and Return Date fields. The main difference is that we
want to constrain the dates that can be select to only those dates
that the user receives service.

I immediately wanted a calendar display because it provides context
to service periods and days of the week.
