comment Why doesn't the Mac OSX finder have a Cut option?
The reason this also breaks it because I actually can cut text using the CMD+X > CMD+V shortcuts. If this was consistent I would have only needed to learn it once. Now it's just confusing and most people don't know how to do it with files.

comment Constructing personas without user research
For future users I would like to highlight that doing this simply isn't possible in terms of the process that creating personas requires which is real primary data. Without primary data you can not create personas, then they are called "ad-hoc personas" or "user profiles". They are often created as a temporary step to understnad which questions to ask during the research for creating real personas.

comment What are we calling the 3 lines button in mobile apps?
I believe this is the most logical answer, yes it should be logical, that's what users expect and cannot be confused :)

comment Design requirements for displaying Terms and Conditions / Privacy Policy
For anyone reading this thread later I would recommend this article. It has two key points: Don't use browserwraps (contracts with no explicit agreement is not a contract according to the court), but instead use clickthroughs. Make the user check a box or press a button in agreement of the terms. If you don't have a natural way to have users agree to T&C's then question why you would use them at all.

comment Why not default a user's view to the middle of a sorted list?
+1 "a pretty complicated mental operation", that is the answer right there. It add two decision for someone to either go up or down. On top of that it requires that person to think in a reverse order from what they are used too.

comment Looking for enterprise web application design inspiration
@johngb, I have to say I don't believe that UX and design are seperate. I believe visual design is part of what we could define as a "user experience", although maybe not the field of UX and what we do as professionals (strictly). The design can not be seperated in my mind from the experience a user has on a site (that site's user experience).
