comment Driving users attention through opacity masks (reading rhythm)
@Gus hi from former teacher (12+ years). From my teaching experience studens hate to read. To provide better learning experience I'd recommend to pay attention to Instructional Design field. The correct case of your method in learning process is presenting some isolated step (e.g. task, test, etc.), when you isolate needed fragment from other content. Another example is presenting some steps within learning material. In this way you provide mandatory/sequence.

comment Forcing Users To think up More Complex Passwords / Ease of Remembering Them
The article is related to your question. Consider the idea: "You don’t need to remember 100 passwords if you have 1 rule set for generating them" (from the article)

comment What is the pattern to show closely coupled data?
@Hem 1) Don't treat design patterns as dogma. 2) Looseness or tightness of the data is subjective. 3) You have Person as entity and categories related to it. 4) For best results base your decisions on objective metrics which could be collected during research (usability testing, A/B testing, etc.)/

@uxfelix Personality, emotions, and trust, which are brought with real author portrait, improve UX. Think of interaction with site as conversation. I place the comment instead of answer to not distract you with my photo on the avatar ).

comment Showing the day of week next to the day selection field in a datepicker component
@MichaelLai calendar view is good for date manipulations for specified goals and context. You asked about date selection, in many cases calendar works well. For months and years detailed calendar view is just non appropriate control, as it shifts focus to date rather than month (year), as your said.
