comment How to handle todos, appointments: separate, integrated or use hybrid term?
I agree, will stop posting new links ;) My biggest pain point is that for todos, you don't only choose the tool you're most comfortable with, you're effectively locking yourself in because there's no standard, and hence no interoperability whatsoever - everybody does their own thing.

comment How to handle todos, appointments: separate, integrated or use hybrid term?
Nice question, looking forward to the discussion! There's also goodtodo.com (e-mail-based), toodledo.com (web-based and with some collaborative features) and todotxt.com (basically a text file with some tools built around it)

comment Is “user experience” evil?
I disagree - in my eyes, UX isn't per se "not evil", same with marketing. It's all about what you do with it, see also adrianh's casino example. When they're corporate employees, UXers (as everyone else) do their job which often is helping their company reach its business goals, and if those goals happen to be "make our product more enjoyable/easier to use", that's what they will do. However, if they tend to ignore the moral implications of their work and they're told to guide the user into a choice that primarily benefits the company (you could call that evil), they probably will do that too.

I agree that discovery is a problem with that approach, but maybe a little tab could work as a hint.
