Login / Lougout from a Usability perspective

Hi all,

In our new site we implemented the Login / Logout process ala Amazon, that
means, the user keep logged in for browsing the site and we always display a
"Hi John Doe" message on top even when the user logout from the secure part
of the site (where users upload the books).

The paradox is: now you get at the home page a "Hi John Doe, Loging". And I
think this is confusing.

What you think?

Thanks in advanced

Best conference?

It's budget time again!! I get to pick one conference. In your expert
opinion, which conference will be the best to attend next year? I am an
interaction designer/ user interface designer. I have attended the Nielsen
Usability conference for the past 2 years, but I'm wondering if CHI 2007
would be a better fit.

The World's First Open Source Circular and Spiral Dock

Circle Dock is a free open source dock-style applications launchers
for Windows that appear where your mouse is instead of you having to
move your mouse to the dock like with other programs. This is
accomplished by making the dock a circular or spiral shape so that it
can be placed anywhere, even near the edge of the screen. The
offscreen portions of the dock are easily reached by just scrolling
with your mouse wheel or arrow keys.

Its Windows only But i would like to see..if anyone has tried this App.

[EVENT Recap] - Chicago - UXsears, multichannel changes in a large organization

It was a big night; easily the most attended event to date. There
wasn't even any food remaining at the conclusion of the event.

Andrew Daniel's presentation was compendious and informative. UXsears
has encountered and tackled significant challenges in the reformation
of an iconic American retailer.

Product "training" and orientation: anything surprising/interesting?

Looking for some inspiration about how to orient people to a UI in a
novel way. Of course, no training should be required, but there's some
legal reasons why we need to do it for a project. Anyone seen any cool
vids/demos/tutorial modes out there lately I could check out?

animation patterns for things moving

I'm looking for good examples of an item moving from one place to another and how to make that clear to the user. The specific example is a selected line within a grid; the user will click an "accept" button on that line, and then the item will leave the grid of items to be reviewed and appear in a grid of approved items. Has anyone seen a nice animation that could help make it clear what is happening?
