R: Good examples of airlines websites

Hi Andrea,

not sure if you're responsible for the web check-in as well, but last
time I tried to use it I ended up with this:


(miscalculation of flight time by not taking into account timezone
differences & next-day arrival)

More of a programming issue than a design flaw, although maybe the
design spec should explicitly say: Time fields SHALL NOT display
negative times :)

Speaking of Data Visualization

For those so inclined, I recently (last week) got a copy of "Data Flow:
Visualizing Information in Graphic Design" which is all about data
visualization in graphic design - but since many here at one point or
another are asked to do something related to visualizing complex data sets -
you may find some of examples are innovative and effective ways of
communicating and could be useful in your work.

intranet/software style guides needed

hi everyone,

I am currently working on a new concept for corporate style guides for
digital assets in enterprise environments.

If you know good style guide (sites) available on the web or if you want
to share a good example, please send me a mail. I would like to get an
impression of the contents, the structure and the presentation.

I am particularily interested in fast-forward examples, like guides for
saas products, enterprise portals, or those solutions that could be
classified as stage 4/5/6 intranets when applying Avenue A's Intranet
Maturity Framework.

IxD as architect

Well, some interactive designs are mission-critical (airplane cockpit
controls, etc.), though most of us admittedly work on websites that may
fall apart but do not fall on people's heads.

Still, the point in common between architecture and interactive design
is that, unlike a conductor or filmmaker, both design an arrangement of
conditions that will affect, but not fully dictate, a set of future
events. How people behave in relation to what has been designed may
largely follow the signposts created, but users of both buildings and
interactive programs are unpredictable.

Ideas on displaying multiple levels of tabular data

Hi Everyone,
I'm interested in hearing if anyone else has come up with any novel
solutions to a particular data presentation issue I'm having.

We've all worked with presenting data in a tabular format but how do
you present to the user a table of data in which each row can be
toggled to show its contents, which in this case may require a tabular
display as well.

Here is a generalized example:

A table containing a listing of school courses (subject, teacher,
room, time).

best cites to get /host UI and UX talent

I have an opportunity to build a UI/UX team for my company and (like everyone else) am concerned about finding quality talent. There is a potential to develop this group at a number of different locations across the US. My experience has shown that certain cities will "resonate" better to the design community. I'd very much like to hear this groups opinions as to the options listed below.
