comment Using business objects in view models
I like your answer but some thoughts... The view model doesn't necessarily change just because the model changes. Only if you were binding or using a specific property that changed would this be an issue since your reference is to the entire object. Having a reference to the domain object makes it easier to make changes and save it again. Your save methods are also dependent on the domain object so you then have to convert the view model back or have your business method setup to accept view models which isn't good either. I still think #2 makes most sense, but just by two cents.

comment Whiteboard “testing” during an interview: legitimate way to back up your (whiteboard) code?
It was just a general point I was making (you mentioned it wasn't that important, so that comment wasn't really directed at you, just at the concept in general and it's flaws). You obviously have a love for whiteboard testing and I was commenting on it. I said it was a good answer in my comment.

comment Impact of Website Redesign on Google Analytics
Use 301 redirects for any pages you are moving to a new location. This will allow any inbound link juice to transfer to the new pages. Try to avoid changing your page titles if possible (or as little as possible). The most you change your content, the more you can expect to see a drop in rankings. They should bounce back eventually, but can often take several months.

Whiteboard tests are stupid. Does anyone really care about a missing semicolon and the like in the days of intellisense. Most of these tests are useless anyway. Have someone code an actual project if you want a real test but even then you are only proving they are skilled at a very specific problem which one person may have done recently vs. another candidate who hasn't done it in awhile. We don't do all things every day so if you're problem isn't very generic than that is a fail. A great answer, but people's love for whiteboard tests I simply don't understand.

Then use an intermediate layer to respond to UI events. This may be a controller, presenter, etc. It will then call into the utility and communicate back with the UI. The UI publishes the event... The middle layer subscribes, calls into the utility, responds back to UI.

comment How to manage contextual objects without IoC container (session or passing around objects)?
If you saw the project you would understand. I don't use a lot of server controls. The user might click on a (javascript chart) data point for instance, this will raise an event and from there javascript might take that set of dates and put them in hidden form fields. They will need to be translated to an appropriate object on the server based on the type of date range, etc. The same goes for commands. Even if you used a server control or binding, you'd have to look up the command object in some factory. Anyway I'm not using MVC and I do appreciate your help.
