Purchase path changes

The purchase path on our site is ... well ... a little cluttered. (Major
understatement.)Marketing is really stuck on the "throw everything at the
wall and see what sticks" approach to upselling, and all the users we've
tested all resoundingly say the same thing: "It's too busy. There's too much
information. It's really crowded.

Visual aspects of interaction design -combative, dismissive, and hostile

Ok, I'll bit.
In the rsparch vs. hga competition. ;)
I didn't like RSParch either as a site or visually. I felt very silly trying
to figure out how to use it.
The HGA site however I liked much better. I think it had one major flaw
though in that some of the transitions felt unnecessarily slow, though I did
like what they led to. The basic structure was good and I never really felt
all that lost. OH! And it was clean and beautful. I doubt this was done by
an inhouse team.

Research Site UX Design (was: Examples of Dashboard Designs)

Hello, I need some help on a similar but wider topic.

My client has a site restricted for its members. The content of the
site are developed from basically benchmarking data (across industry,
practice areas). He uses survey tools to gather data from its user
base and allows individual members with reports, best practices
suggestions, insights (sort of Business Intelligence) on the
dashboards, etc.

My question is how will you enhance this product?

-- How can you utilize concepts of Social Networking to enhance participation?
Any great example, pointers, papers will help.

Kindle

Amazon has released the Kindle, their electronic book device. This is
a very interesting product. My initial reactions:

It's the right size/weight. I didn't like the industrial design of it
at first (too antiseptic?), but it's growing on me.

Wireframes: Illustrator/Indesign question…

Hi Meikel,

I'm not sure the InDesign+Illustrator is the best choice for your
wireframe documentation.

If you're using a PC, you should take a look at Axure -
http://www.axure.com. I have some friends who have been using it and
they seem very happy with it. I've never used it, as I haven't done
wireframes for a long time, and also because there is still no Mac
version of this software...so, I've never even tried it...But I have
close friends using it and loving it, many of them with an
"Illustrator background".
