I'm a web developer at Canonical.

I have a blog about web dev, politics and other things.

I'm interested in UX, client- and server-side development, code architecture and microformats.

I'm not a fan of intellectual property, and I love freedom of information and open-source.

comment Implementing Single Sign-On on sites with different navigational structures
I do think they should be introduced properly, I just don't think it's the biggest question-writing faux pas. Most acronyms are after all easily googleable. A question is not an essay and should not have a prohibitively large overhead of formatting. But I do agree with you.

I don't agree that you shouldn't use abbreviations at all (although it's always good practice to expand your abbreviations where possible). If you don't understand the abbreviation you're clearly not going to be able to understand the question, so move on. It probably would help to add a tag to the question to clearly show that it's a bit technical / web development / HTML / SEO related though...

comment Default cursor on mouse over of a button is not a hand pointer
I would also like an answer to which is more usable. Most UI tweaks are pretty subliminal - users don't notice explicitly. But they make a difference. For example, in the question above I might think the button images in the question were actual buttons, but be alerted to the face that they're not because of the cursor. I noticed buttons on StackExchange sites have cursor: pointer.
