Another user interface debate came up at work today. Do we hide links when they're not available or do we show them but deactivate the link? A quick google search returned a link to the brilliant Raymond Chen's entry on the matter. Doesn't answer the question but provides some guidelines. I remember reading a Slashdot headline of an interview with an ex-Apple guy who touched on the same question. I couldn't find the link, but I want to say it was with Jef Raskin.
