1. Why do XYZ reader applications mark things as read as soon as I select them? Just because I’ve glanced at them doesn’t mean I’ve read them. At least defer that judgement until I’ve scrolled to the bottom of the main content

  2. Application of notes or similar: reminding people to contact people in areas they don't go to often. Potential flow:

    • I create an event with a location
    • my software searches my contacts for people in this area
    • a list of those contacts are presented in a non modal fashion
    • If I can't remember where I met the person, hovering on them shows date and location of when I added them to my contacts
  3. Laura Kalbag: Avatars. Do they add anything to comments, or are they a waste of space?

    laurakalbag they add significant value to conversations, as they provide a recognisable visual indication of who is speaking and where each comment starts/ends. I am inclined against comments, but would recommend having avatars if you do :)

  4. Sophie Dennis: @Jack_Way I hold out optimistically on the Groups, but the quality of a lot of the discussion is very poor. Have to filter hard

    sophiedennis I am a member of an excellent musical instrument design group but don’t contribute much due to horrible UI and uninformative emails

  5. Conclusion from photography website UX session: “On the web, there are communities, and then there’s “Community””

  6. Aral Balkan: … Beauty of that interaction is it has authenticity, substance, a story. It feels real. The app becomes a solid object to #play with. #xd

    Aral Balkan the other interesting effect I get is an increase in perceived productivity. Closing an app via multitouch instead of physical button seems a more fluid UI

  7. Website Owner Tip: Provide *helpful* contact info. For example, if you provide a phone number, tell the user when's the best time to call. Perhaps even a bit of client side code that tells the user if **now** is a good time to call? With email addresses, how about telling them how long they're likely to wait for a reply? #web #tip #ux
