I found meme about big green button.
When people visit download sites (like software directories, file hosting sites, torrents, etc) after completing reading page title and deciding to download they look for big green button...
I have interest to know origin of color and size choice.
I found this sources:
- "When User Hits Machine" is Xerox film from 1983, more info at http://www.workpractice.com/wpt-fest/introduction.html and at http://athinkingperson.com/2010/06/02/where-the-big-green-copier-button-came-from/
- http://biggreenbutton.net/ (humor site about this button from 1996)
Also possibly related links:
- On mobile phones why is the green (call) button at the left and red (hang) button at the right side?
- Red buttons in an e-commerce site?
UPDATE. Interesting color marking agreements can be found at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triage
