comment Exercise to educate graphic designers about the importance of usability
That sounds like a good follow up. It'd be an interesting discussion to ask the question: "Is there a linear relationship between the size of font and whether people notice it ?" - ie if you make the font twice as big, do twice as many people read it ?

comment How to set up an observation room
Morae works well - though trying to use the markup tools is a distraction from actually running the testing. I do the analysis later. I also run a backup audio recording - so if there is some technical disaster you've still got some data to work from rather than losing the whole session...

comment How to set up an observation room
Agreed that the biggest job is analysing the video. However what's significant might only become apparent once you've tested a number of users. I'd be wary of just jumping in on the more obvious things.

comment How to convince a user to fill out a survey
I'd put the comment box at the beginning. Then if they want to say anything they can without having to engage with your preset questions at all.

comment What do you call the square brackets in a camera app or QR scanner?
The answer probably depends on your audience: one answer may be technically correct - but not actually mean anything to your audience.

comment What is the preferrable name for the Jobs / Careers / 'Work For Us' area of a website?
Possibly more important that what you call it, is whether its going to get hidden away on some submenu on the site.

comment Is clockwise or counter-clockwise rotated text easier to read?
Good observation about the country the subjects come from jk ! however it doesn't seem to line up with the spine preference for America given in one of the other answers.

comment How to evaluate average results on an UX survey?
For a lot of usability problems users will just 'get used to it' over time and it will become the 'new normal'. (and if there were any 'showstopper' problems these will have been fixed). So over time it will become average.
