comment Should you optimize mobile experiences based on individual handedness?

comment How to visually indicate a change in setting
Cool. That makes sense. In that case maybe add in explicit warnings about the risk "Private: No [bob made this public on 2008-01-23:19:22]" or something?

comment How to visually indicate a change in setting
Why is it important? Why does the user care? Can we communicate this in other ways than "you have changed the default"?

comment What is the best way to calculate how long a UX design task will take?
I disagree with @JonW. It is a UX question. Because the solutions to estimation problems - especially in a agile context - are specific to the domain. And this is a common problem for UX folk in agile contexts.
