good examples of stacked / "window blind" left nav

I need some good examples of this to show a client I am proposing this
solution to.

I know a lot of people are starting to do this, but I need some examples
of successful implementations in order to get them on board.

Microsoft Sync article in the Seattle Times

There was an interesting article today in the automotive section of
the Seattle Times about Microsoft Sync. It's a set of voice-activated
controls installed in a 2008 Ford Focus. Mark Phelan, the Detroit Free
Press reviewer, thought it worked pretty well (better than the car it
was installed in). Don't know if maybe a few 'softies on this list
might have worked on the project and would like to comment.

Messaging Patterns

Hey all,

I'm attempting to determine industry standards for website communication but am having a hard time finding any formal documentation.

What constitutes a "warning" and an "alert"? Is a warning a subset of an alert? How about a reminder, is it a type of warning?

Seeking UI/UX partner in crime. Any takers?

Hi List,

I currently lead up a small design firm of sorts. We are positioned in a unique space, in that we perform the following three functions: - UI/ UX design for mobile, web and desktop applications - Creative coding for commercials, print and installations (specifically using OpenFrameworks and Processing) - Sound design for a variety of media

I'd contemplated phasing one or two of these areas out for the sake of specialization, but work continues to come in for each.

Looking for a pledge, or ideas for same, concerning designing interactions

Hi folks,

The context for this request is the possibility that
I may resume the teaching of a methodology that can be
used to help designers build interactive systems that
more powerfully lead users to satisfying ends, but
that *could* be used in a strongly perverse way.

I would like to hear of examples of, or even your ideas
for, a pledge you might agree with and to sign up for.

What is the Best Practice for Usability Testing aRegistration Process.

Hi Paul,

You have different scenarios, or you have different designs? I'm not
sure how you would test for validity of a scenario with usability
testing -- in that case it sounds like you'd want to do contextual work
to see if you find your scenarios 'in the wild.' But if what you really
mean is that you have three slightly different designs, then you're
right, you shouldn't test all three designs with the same individual.
What this means, of course, is tripling the number of tests you need to
do. For that reason, I probably wouldn't take the time to test all
