comment How could you prevent users from leaving their original copy in the photocopier?
I like simple physical constraints too. This is sort of like making diesel nozzles wider than unleaded ones to prevent you from filling up your gas-powered car with diesel fuel.

comment Do people actually use tooltips?
Tooltips are a great way to layer in info in a web interface, but don't rely on them too heavily. When you move to mobile you'll have to come up with another way of explaining all those pretty icons -- probably with a chunk of text alongside the icon.

comment What is the current pixel width standard for a website's content area?
Yup, the Nielsen article sums it up -- the new average resolution is 1366×768. We're looking at redoing an admin interface in a wider 1200px container. That should be fine for most users, but I'm concerned that it also work for users on laptops and tablets.

comment Is a sitemap always needed when designing a microsite?
I always include a sitemap, or a flow, for multi-screen projects. It seems like overkill, but you'd be surprised how often it forestalls objections from stakeholders or developers.
