Hi All,

i am not quite sure where to start with this. We are looking to create a kiosk, information point written in either flash using action script with a mysql back end or simply php and mysql depending on which is easier.
I am very much interested in out sourcing the project however at this stage im not sure what the best way to do this is? i am told i can post requirements of a project on to specialist developer sub contracting sites however my google search finds nothing (im sure its my lack of knowledge in that area).

I am unsure of this is available via experts exchange or if it should be reserved for technical questions only?
if the later i would still like some help on some questions but first the project in hand:-

A information point kiosk displaying local amenities and tourist attractions for the use of the general public located in the UK and found in Hotels, Airports and Conference centers etc.

A simple 4 tier system starting with 6 main categories on the start page and increasing or decreasing depending on the categories on page 2 and so forth,

Food & Drink
    List of bars in the area
       Details page of selection

I would like ot have the listings saved to a database that will be centralised in a remote location.
we will have multiple kiosks in different locations howevr sometimes close to each other. I would like to have the kiosk only display those listings we instruct it to with the click of a button as an example.

I have search hotscripts etc for a ready available starting point however i have been unsuccessful due to the need to have this run on a touch screen monitor so all buttons and links need to be of a perfectly large size for all ages and hand sizes.

I am not very good at explaining everything that is required however i would like your help on putting me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance,
