UX really is simple:

  1. Ask the users.
  2. Analyze their feedback.
  3. Design a better system.

Also interesting: Nass didn't improve the usability of Clippy, "only" its UX.

comment What's the point in electronic devices beeping on keypress?
IMO, it is feedback not only for you, but also for those who were photographed. This applies to electric cars with fake motor sound to an even greater extent.

comment Greater Than > or Plus +
I would interpret +8 as a stupid way to write 8 (in contrast to -8).

comment Points in game dynamics / gamification
Wording is important here: gold shouldn't be confused with mana. For example, if there is a high score, which type of points does it track?

comment What makes people vote?
@Knu I beg to differ. The position only expresses the importance that these votes seem to have. But this subjective importance is not only influenced by visual cues.

comment How can we communicate that UX work can't be done by just anyone?
Also: the fact the basics are now (more or less) well-known by developers help us ux experts (whatever that means) to strive for something more exquisite. Rembrandt only stood out because painting was a well-known art.
