Question about full 1024 width of SmashingMagazine web site

Anyone have any thoughts on Smashing's expanded 1024 layout for higher res monitors?

Noticed they collapse to 990 at 1024, but go to the full 1024 as you expand out.

Who is making this move now? What's the standard or best practice? Client is looking for inspiration on HuffPo and other newsy sites. Sees the 960 grid, but wants to ascertain what the current thinking is on expanding out to 1024.


Best regards,

Silicon Valley First Friday is now Second Friday

Hi folks,

Once again the first Friday of the month lands on a holiday weekend. So I
think it's better to permanently move our user experience designer happy
hour to the second Friday of the month. Less alliterative, but more

Stay tuned for details about a get-together on the 9th. In the meantime, I'm
looking for suggestions about other places we can get together in the
Sunnyvale/Mountain View, as well as San Jose area, so we can rotate
locations. If you've got a spot that you think would be good, let me know.

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).

Business analysis, functional design, and governance


Working with a project manager who's insisting that BAs - or people who analyze and document requirements - should not also be the same people who do functional design (which by the way 'doesn't exist' according to him - he's nothing if not opinionated) - something to do with a governance conflict. The issue seems to be that the same person should not do requirements and functional (ie solution) design, as this creates a conflict of interest or accountability.
