A man with far too many questions trying to work out how the world works.

My primary interests are in UX and education as a whole - specifically in finding ways of improving or remaking the education system so that it is still appropriate to the world we will live in at the time that students graduate.

comment Group of checkboxes and supporting text fields
@ChristopherKeeler it's easier to scroll through a long list than it is to scan through a page full of checkboxes. This is one of the times where design and usability are at odds.

comment Converting two character dates into four character dates
@msanford You shouldn't accept 2 character years. It's safer to let the user know that they need 4 character years than try and guess the year.

comment Who needs an external on/off Wi-Fi button?
@SteveS during the flight wifi is allowed, so I don't see why a switch would be for safety then.
