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.

Scholarships/Grants for Grad School

I'm in the process of applying for grad school, looking to learn about and study the usability of public transit systems. This is cross-disciplinary, but a big component of it is masters-level training in UX/Interaction Design. Would anyone happen to know of good scholarships/grants to chase for work in this area?

Communicating value in Social Apps (was Wired gets Leisa Riechtl's "Ambient Intimacy")

The recent thread on Twitter is interesting.
First I love the concept of Ambient Intimacy.
I think that Twitter is a great example of attempting to do this.
I do think it fails on several accounts I mention in the thread.

But that said, Chris Fahey said this in the thread:
"It's a unique quality of Twitter and other Social Apps that it takes a
lot of time to understand what it is, what the community is like or how
the tool facilitates and shapes your personal relationships.
