comment On a home page: How critical is it that all the main goals of a site are in some way represented above the fold?
interesting. To be honest, I'm trying to make this site be the most ultra-handy resource possible so that visitors can zap their way right to what they need... so the strategy of hiding things for a sense of mystery or exclusivity seems risky. (I do sense that you are describing something quite subtle, but in general, I regularly focus on the dream of a super "right within reach" feeling.)

Afraid I didn't understand the text of Michael Lai's comment. Yes, my assumption is that I will have more items and blocks to place on my home page than will fit in the above the fold area -- when the user scrolls down, they will find additional material and functionality. That is why I'm interested in this question.

yes -- I recognize that this user or that user will have larger screens, and some are on mobile, etc. But for the sake of my getting a sense of an answer, I would just say let's all pretend for the sake of argument that the designer did have the ability to be confident to know where "the fold" did cut off, even though in reality they can't. How significant is that cut-off point in determining what you put above or below it?

comment Is there any emerging “standard” for the direction a screen scrolls when a trackpad “scroll” gesture moves downwards?
great info. I didn't know that windows 8 had cast its lot with the method that I was used to. If windows 8 and the mac both agree, that to me is a pretty strong answer to this question. It seems that therefore my goal is to find an extension, plug-in, or app for Windows 7 that allows me to reverse the touch-pad method used by ELAN touch-pad on my laptop... so it is in sync with where things are headed.

another fact that I will leave out of the question, that also created confusion, is that when I bought an apple "magic mouse," they decided to make the sensor on the top of the mouse act like a trackpad rather than a click-wheel, with regards to the motions (1) and (2) I describe above. They made it be a (1). I love (1) but I think that the top of the magic mouse is not a trackpad... it's more like a clickwheel. so I got an extension to reverse it.

comment Is my suspicion correct, that QR codes will be a short-lived standard with little effect?
so, in that use that you describe, it is quite important that the tag holds a LOT of data, like the size equivalent of several paragraphs of text? it is not enough for the tag to encode just one or a couple unique IDs of some kind that reference fuller records elsewhere?
