How to Get People to Answer Honestly

I'm designing a long application for a financial product. We need people to answer some personal questions honestly (underwriting seems to find this important). Before people start the application, does anyone have any tips on how to pre-condition users so they are in more of an "honest state-of-mind")? I have a few books that discuss this, but not on-hand. Any suggestions?

Cultural change is the first job of most design managers ...

I received the below message. I bet Jakob Nielsen gets a gazillion of such
e-mails every day. Anyway, the gist of it is ... "How dare you claim to lead
us if your site looks like such crap?" Like I said, I bet Jakob gets a
gazillion of these every day.

So after my message is my response tot his person. The gist of that is to
say ...

ISCED classification of Interaction design

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows how to categorize and classify Interaction design in ISCED (International Standard Classification of Education)?

I was denied the possibility to get a scholarship for studying abroad, because they categorized Interaction design as art, and they don't give any art scholarships. But on the other hand they categorized Industrial design as Technical education. I have still 11 days left to appeal against their decision. 

I am really thankful for any nugget of information.

The Internet as an enormous, hulking Tootsie Roll pop

A cohort posted this on another list...

Although it isnt exactly IX oriented, it is still really interesting.

The Internet may be referred to as the "information superhighway," but
a better analogy might be an enormous, hulking Tootsie Roll pop.

Examples of pre-login \"soft personalization\"?

I'm looking for examples of personalization that happens when a user
has not yet logged in, either via cookies, geo location by IP
address, or flash cookies ("local shared objects").

Examples I have so far are:
- Amazon's home page, if you've ever logged in before
- Google local results in standard search result page
- ads everywhere

Any other ways to personalize w/o requiring login technically?
Any other names for this? Profiling?
Any other favorite examples?

Thanks in advance...
