Hello, I'm a Designer and Front-End Developer. I craft user experiences. I'm a GitHubber.

I write some times, teach, speak and have some side projects too. I love Jesus, am a proud father and husband, and am also a B-boy, skater, and Steeler fan. I've been to Kenya three times and my Kikuyu name is Mwaura. Sushi is probably my favorite food.

Now that you know so much about me why don't you say hi!

comment What is this side menu called that can be found in many multi-touch apps, and where does it originate from?
Technically the "hamburger" terminology refers to a specific style of menu icon that resembles the hamburger in a bun, not necessarily to the sliding sidebar drawer implementation of the menu. In fact, even in the OPs screenshots there is actually no hamberger icon used.

comment What is this side menu called that can be found in many multi-touch apps, and where does it originate from?
Technically, the "hamburger" terminology refers to the specific three bars icon that resembles a big mac, not necessarily the sidebar drawer execution of the menu itself. As you can see from the OPs screenshots, the sidebar drawer implementation has been successfully executed without the hamberger icon, using instead things like an arrow, etc.

comment What would be a good non-religious icon to represent that a person has died?
tombstone or coffin would work here.

comment Creating a web UI for an 'Expert System'. What is the best approach?
Your question is definitely too broad. It lends itself more to a discussion, which sadly this site is not intended for. But if you can make a more objective question out of this (or a few), you may get some good input from the community here. Feel free to use the edit button to rewrite or clarify your question. Thanks!

Agreed - it is one of the best books on the topic I know of, and a very easy read.

comment What systematic methods there are for designing user interfaces?
Also you should change your question title then to something like "How do I find out what the users need" because your question is "what systematic methods are there" and that is what I gave you.

comment What systematic methods there are for designing user interfaces?
Yes, but if you dig in and read the articles (especially at UX Booth) you'll find a lot of that info as the WHY articulated.

comment Tab Overflow: What to do when I run out of space for yearly tabs?
Agreed. This was my first thought too. I think it could be implemented as a very practical AND visually appealing solution.
