Determining Location

We have several features on our site that are location dependent -- as one
example, we only sell certain products in certain regions. Currently, we ask
people to click on a region in a world map.

We're currently looking at MaxMind:


(was that accurate for you?)

We aren't thinking of relying solely on the results of that in every
context, just trying to make some smarter display decisions.

Two questions:

1.) Does anyone have any experience using any of these services??
ip2location? Maxmind?

NYC thanks Luke Williams, Icon Nicholson, and all event attendees

NYC IxDA sends out kudos to Luke Williams of frog design, who gave a
superb presentation last night to a standing-room-only, overflow crowd
of 75 attendees. Our deep appreciation also goes to event host, Icon
Nicholson. The group was enthralled by Luke's thought-provoking
discussion on how humans interact with shapes and objects at a
fundamental, cognitive level.

open discussion vs. community of practice?

Hey there,

In a bar w/ two blokes and one of them says, "I don't think you can
have both an open discussion list and a community of practice."

I've been scratching my head ever since.
Yes, first we need to figure out what a CoP REALLY means, so maybe the
discussion in this thread could start there. It is also a thread about
what do we want IxDA to become.

on your mark, get set, go!

And it *cannot* be efficient without being effective.

If you're doing the wrong thing, it doesn't matter how fast you're doing
it. You're not efficient.
