Front-end developer at an online bank. I've been doing web development for 15 years. For most of that time, I've been passionate about UX, though I wouldn't consider myself an expert. It's a great privilege to be a part of this community and learn from you smart people.

You can also catch me on Stack Overflow, Twitter (@patrick_mc), and Github.

Are you sure about that? By definition, they can't see the patterns, but does that mean they can't use them?

comment funnel or checklist icon
Hi w0rldart. we recently determined that questions on specific icons are unlikely to be useful to future visitors. As such, I'm closing this question. I'm glad you got you found the answer you sought, and agree, you can't go wrong with a funnel.

comment Is Amazon's layout good or bad from a UX and conversion optimization POV?
This question isn't a good for the site. All of the answers and comments are just opinions, with very little knowledge exchange. See the blog post, Good Subjective, Bad Subjective for more information.

Awesome answer. Do you have a source for the Soviet Union anecdote?

comment On mobile phones why is the green (call) button at the left and red (hang) button at the right side?
+1 For researching all those other questions, but do you have anything to substantiate the claim that buttons tended to be one way in the past and have now flip-flopped (that there is or ever was a common convention)?

revised How can I deal with too much blank space in a desktop application?
Added WIMP tag. Per recent meta discussion, wonder if many of our desktop-application questions would be more suitably tagged WIMP.
