comment How do you create a taxonomy for products?
Where about can I see multiple breadcrumb trails on Amazon? This came up in a conversation and, looking for an example, I couldn't find any :(

comment Desktop patterns for displaying long lists of sorted data
I agree with the sentiment of physically scrolling the mouse wheel being a terrible way to discover content. Personally, with appropriate data, I would welcome scrollable content as something that can be navigated through with a scroll wheel, a scroll bar and/or page up and down buttons, I simply want to enhance that experience with appropriate hints and shortcuts. Think about it this way - if you have a massive excel spreadsheet, you want to retain the scrollbars not come up with alternative pagination!

Great point with increasing scroll accuracy! I don't want to interfere with the native scrollbar (e.g. by replacing it with a drag bar) and I feel that overlaying information in this way could be a bit too intrusive for the user.

...I actually like the footnote direction so much I will award the bounty to this answer over the most popular one. Thank you!

comment How to reference (and provide links to) online content in offline media?
@MarkSloan: that is one of the concerns I wanted to have explored. In my mind, take-home publications are likely to accompany an end-user's online experience - which drove my assumption that a short alphanumeric URL would be appropriate.

This could work quite well for CMS content (where IDs could be reused) but due to heterogeneous nature of the environment there are a lot, if not a majority, of pages off-CMS

+1, I especially like the footnote direction; don't think I've seen it done much in the wild

@MikeMersereau: +1, very thorough advice. I feel not all of it is 100% relevant to our situation as we're consistently linking internal content, i.e. same domain URLs.

Thanks for your answer. My current concern with vanity urls is having too many of them (we're currently approaching a 300 urls mark :), having too verbose ones or having collisions. I'll update my question to reflect that
