SIGIA-L: IA Tools

It occured to me that in the course of some of these discussions some people
are casually mentioning various software and other tools that they are using
to perform various tasks in the course of their IA work. Also there have
been references to various books that people have found directly or
indirectly useful in informing their work.
I was thinking that it would be a useful exercise to compile a list of these
for the benefit of the group.
If anyone is interested in sending me a list of the tools/instuments that
they use, and books they think are relevent, I will collect and sort them
and send the lists back to sigia-l. Please include a short (like no more
than a smallish paragraph) description of the item and/or how you use it.
I have included copies below of the ones that have been mentioned so far.

events, logic, time, actore). Essentially it's a far richer version of
flowcharting that is composed of simple diagramming techniques but all the
components to describe complex entities like web-based applications.

cool-looking support for running a card sorting exercise over the Web!)
