Excellent post on FOOTER Design

I’ve been knee deep in this for the last few weeks designing the footer for the lastest refresh of NGTV or no good tv 2.

The semantic markup is key.

I wonder if ajax – for physics
or Other tools such as a Text Scanner, Article Scanner?

Maybe a Social/Community Network Feed from each? I mean the list goes on.

Ideally, the UI should know your “BROWSING BEHAVIOR” and adapt to what you or “YOUR SOCIAL NETWORK” tend to click on.

The ON HOVER or ROLLOVER functionality could be used to embed RICH/MICRO displays.

I mean, it could go on and on.

What is it you’re trying to do?
— IS your member contributing?
— What PASSIVE – ACTIVE (gradient) Behavior can you track and expose him/her to later?
— IS this engaging?
— Is this quick?

RELEVANT, ENTERTAINING, ENGAGING, FAST, FAMILIAR, TIMESAVING, Promotes CREAVITIY, PLAY-LIKE?

I mean.

Will he/she come back. OR Will they recommend?
