Multimedia design + programming + making music + bicycles, that's me.

comment Why do most image gallery popups have Previous and Next arrows so far apart?
I've seen some gallery popups that split the image in half and each side is clickable.

comment What gives the impression of faster progress: progress bar or countdown?
In doubt, you could use both, check how wetransfer.com shows the progress with both (not time, but percentage)

comment Why do most public toilet doors open inwards?
Knocking people can also happen on the other direction, can't it?

comment Why do most public toilet doors open inwards?
great question, I too have that problem with these doors, and my technique is to use a paper tissue, or if I'm lucky have someone else open it for me (someone entering for instance).

comment Is ReCaptcha a poor anti-spam mechanism?
I agree, and the comment about the button is very good, not to mention that a space needed between the words isn't obvious to everyone.

comment Alternates to the “play/pause” button
@Alex Feinman oh, in that case I think you're stuck with the play/pause combo, it's the best arround, but since you will/may have several, you will probably need to grey out the other plays while one is playing, or at least pause the ones playing, tough one...

comment What are the ramifications of removing voting down (thumbs down)?
@JoJo that's true, but at the end of the day, a negative vote isn't (shouldn't be) to harm the author/user, but instead to provide a feedback about the content. I know this is more or less of an utopia, users always take it personally :( even so, IMO it's best to keep it and find a way to minimize the "impact" of negatives...

comment Is my suspicion correct, that QR codes will be a short-lived standard with little effect?
My main use of large amounts of text is to embed the inventory details (in my case it's very useful), it's better than having a sheet of paper with printed details.

haha! but then you have the future paper electronics, which will make that technology cheaper (a lot!) and maybe even evolve to something bigger! You post gave me some ideas, and I wonder if we could interact with QR codes in a two way stream, like: I read the QR code and the code then does something (?), the best I've done so far with this thought was to embed a tiny URL and then track the number of clicks, it's hardly the same thing. I wonder if NFC could do something along these lines?

After reading your post, I agree that the QR codes may live for a long time (as do the common bar code), but what will the bigger fish be that will make the QR codes as old as todays bar code?

I use a lot of QR codes for personal inventory and I too have the same feeling that these may have their days counted, one thing that I really don't like in these codes is the inability to know what they are without reading them, I mean, you have to read them anyway with your device, but if you want to distinguish them without a device there is no way and a different system could maybe take that in account.

comment What UX solutions are there for the EU cookie legislation?
I loved the "until the visitor deletes his 'consent' cookie"... This legislation is so wrong. I haven't done anything yet about it, but see in the future browsers doing this consent request for you, then we'll have two problems, double consents?
