Right-hand navigation

Hi all,

We're working on a new site design and some initial user testing has shown that our local navigation is just as effective on the right side of the page as it is on the left. Generally, my experience has been that if it looks like navigation, people usually figure out that that's what it is, so, while I'm feeling like the right-side will work, I'm still hesitant to flout conventions.

I reviewed this thread from a couple of years ago:

Berkshire Hathaway. Good Design?

I find the official homepage of Berkshire Hathaway interesting (I'm sorry, I would love to put a link to it but this discussion tool won't let me). This is a company that has over $350 billion in assets, revenue of over $100 billion annually, and owns companies such as Dairy Queen and Fruit of the Loom. Yet, their website looks like it was designed by a grade 10 class.

Ergonomics / UX / Human factors / Interaction design / Usability specialists : I get confused

 

Hello,

I'm french and I work as what we call an "ergonome". I'm a bit confused about all the terms that are used to speak about "UX/usability/interaction" related jobs in the english speaking world : I read things about "Interaction designers", "Human factor specialists", "User experience specialist", "Usability specialists", "Information architects", and I'm... lost.

Identifying users without accounts

Hello,

I am currently working on a proof of concept and I would like to be able
to identify users without the need for the user to generate account and

based on his earlier entered data on his mobile device. Now I would like to
identify the user in some manner when he uses his mobile device (currently
iPhone atm).

Are there any best practices if you want to do such things? I am currently
