I'm just this guy, you know?

Although I have spent a few years in management-land, and was a qualified Project managemt Professional, I am now back doing coding and architecture full-time. Yay! Primarily C# these days, but also Lingo and other languages.

comment Best way to display numerous dates on a data form?
Sorry for the two-week hiatus here, but here's a sort of unpretty concept diagram to begin with: dl.dropbox.com/u/187650/Tumblr%20images/… They grey rects are meant to be draggable sliders; much prettying required.

comment How and when should you use animation in your application?
I disagree. If the competing app has gratuitous animations that are nothing but distraction, keeping it simple might actually be a selling point for your app.

comment Simplicity vs. Flexibility
No, but I wind up reverting to the standard one surprisingly often. It's just not worth it.

comment Simplicity vs. Flexibility
That's not my conclusion. In fact, I would argue that we need to break complexity into 'intrinsic' and 'unnessary' complexity, and eliminate the unnessary and not the intrinsic. Making the UI itself changeable, however, is almost always unnessary complexity.
