  • Posted to The Most Important Feature Amazon is Not Launching, Aug 07, 2018

    I like the idea, but I would hate the never ending feedback on everything I buy. It would be interesting to have a review field with that. I am sure they have already have data points on how often users repurchase similar items to auto populate that duration field.

    I am guessing Apple earbuds would have like durability of 6 month how many times I lose them.

    My personal opinion the larger problem is the amount of knock-off crap they allow on the site and how easy it is to create fake reviews. This creates fake confidence that this product is good when it isn't.

    First, just do some small aspect of it and tell them how this insight help you complete X. They mainly want to see the value in action actually work. Once you get their confidence try to add it in your timeline. If its not in there, then you will never have time for it.

    If I never have access to the actual user, I will always ask to schedule interviews with the tech support team. They are the closest thing to the user and usually know what common problems and asks are. If no formal interview need, just walk your ass down the hall and say hi or slack the team a message.

    I would ask...

    • Which clients/users would you say reach out to you the most?
    • Could you give some examples of common question you received from user type X?
    • Could you show me and walk through some examples?
    • What are some of the common feature requests this user group X seem to ask?
    • Are there any power users that would be interest in helping us out on a future project? Know you just learn more about them.

  • Posted to What’s your idea of Work-Life Balance?, Jul 25, 2018

    120 hours inside a work week... It feels odd when you break it down, but seems like personal time like my fun and running are my most important yet smallest part of the week.

    • 33% Work (40 hours)
    • 29% Sleep (35 hours / 7ish per day)
    • 10% Commuting (12.5 hours - 2.5 hours a day)
    • 10% Watching TV with my wife (12.5 - 2.5 hours per day)
    • 6% Cooking/Eating/Cleaning Dinner (7.5 hours - 1.5 hours per day)
    • 6% Getting Ready for Work or Bed (7.5 - 1.5 hours per day)
    • 2% Side work/personal fun (3 hours)
    • 2% Working out (3 Hours)
    • 2% Chors (2.5 hours - 30min a day)

  • Posted to There is a higher rate of dyslexia in designers - but design tools don't have good spell check? , in reply to Billy Mitchell , Jul 23, 2018

    I feel you 100%.

    My peers would always make fun of my spelling mistakes. I also tend to drop words and add it in my head when I read it even out loud. I never knew my problem, until my mid 20's with a doctor. It transition to work and I am very self conscious about it.It takes me around 20min to write 2-3 line emails. Luckily, I become more upfront with it with our clients. I just flat out say, "Sorry I am dyslexic, you may see some mistakes time to time. We try catch them the best we during these quick turn arounds." Usually, I have project manager or content manager proof read or just review it.

  • Posted to My UX Resource list , Jul 17, 2018

    Nice list, but I wouldn't say it was a "UX" resource, but its mixture of everything through out the process of a project. From research, design, and management.

  • Posted to Dream Company + Unsexy Work + Lesser Role?, Jul 16, 2018

    Apart of me wants to say yes... mainly because I want to know their process and thinking that makes them so successful. Or even try to build something that helps others.

    The other half says no, mainly because of past experiences. You will completely love it or hate it. It will be everything you imagined or you will start seeing all the cracks that lay behind the name.

    First of all, Webflow University has been very helpful, same with the feature ranking/suggestion, and the community space sharing new ui systems. It finally giving me the power to build without needing a dev to understand PHP. It help me launch couple of my person projects rather then just rot in sketch or photoshop. For that I thank you.

    Second, I have been using your product more and more for wireframing in both government and commercial space. The feedback has actually been very impressed by the design speed, and developers love it because it brings the designs back to earth. I am curious anyone else does this....

    No questions, just praises.

    You have an URL error. I think you posted the link twice in the link.

    For others try this.
