So we're finally getting a break in the weather. It got cold enough yesterday to start freezing the Chesapeake bay -- first time seeing that.

We're kickin tha #dumbassery up to tha next level!

h/t +Arthur Gwynne
 
In further news, the US House of Representatives has continued their plans to bring about the Apocalypse, passing a bill (on almost exactly party lines) to effectively ban scientists from being on the EPA's scientific advisory board. Under these new rules, anyone who has done research on anything which the board studies is considered to have a conflict of interest, and therefore cannot sit on the board. Fortunately, simply having a financial stake in the matters which the board studies does not constitute a conflict of interest, so the scientific advisory board continues to be open to corporate public affairs officers, demented preachers, or roving madmen off the street.

The bill now proceeds to the Senate, where it has been referred to the Committee on Environment and Public Works. This is the committee chaired by Sen. Inhofe of Oklahoma, author of The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future and other light classics, in which he tells us that because of the existence of God, the "arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is... outrageous." So in all, it's a good year for public affairs officers, demented preachers, and roving madmen off the street in all aspects of our government, and I forecast excellent career opportunities for each of these categories going forward. 

h/t +Peter da Silva for the link.
The GOP-dominated House passed a bill Tuesday that effectively prevents scientists who are peer-reviewed experts in their field from advising the EPA.

I always thought everyone could do that.

+Steve Bertolacci Olá Steve, não sei se todo mundo pode fazer isso, mas eu saio do corpo lúcida quase sempre, posso voar, visitar vários lugares, já fui até em outros Países. Na viagem astral ( sair do coro consciente ) tem muitas vantagens, podemos aprender muitas coisas, ver que a vida é eterna e suave, tem também o lado ruim, onde podemos ser vitimas de espíritos trevosos, mas sempre existe um amigo do astral que sempre nos orienta. Abraços

I love the articles with honesty added in: "Lesson One: “Fail Fast” is Bullshit, but do Kill your Darlings." It is a good read, but long. I think we really need to start a good acronym for this gem too: "The difference between “suck” and “holy, f*ck!” "

I just have a few nitpicky points of contention. The part about testing with real people is where a lot of UX types go wrong. Sure, get feedback and additional input from real people, but never forget the numbers. If you're catering to 30M people across the US, don't interview 30 people in your city and expect the results to be representative of the whole. Your margin of error is something you can not ignore because it will bite you in the ass.

The other key item when dealing with catering to the masses is just the realization of what you're really up against. Sure it's easy to look at your stats and see how everyone is using your site in different little buckets with nice clean percentages next to them. However, once you get to the point of trying to please everyone, you quickly paint yourself in a corner. Solutions for some people are not always compatible with others. If more of the UX crowd can get their heads around better ways of segmentation on top of all that other stuff, I think we can actually have some good experiences out there.

#keyhole  (because that name still makes me laugh)
 
A lot of the tips here are relevant to websites too, of course.

There is no substitute for simply watching people try to do something that you designed and seeing them fail, knowing it’s your fault. Don’t ever make them feel stupid for it. They’re smart. You’re not. As a designer, you have to have enough empathy to see the world as they do. That’s all that matters in the end.

Note to self: read this when I have more time, it looks really insightful :)
It's not often one gets to design a product resulting in a billion anything. I'm extremely fortunate to have more than one instance of designing, architecting or at least inspiring products in that...

MOAR markup!
 
New on Google search : Easy to scan search carousels that will surface your users' favorite content on Google mobile search!

This new feature (available only on google.com, in English for now) will help surface high quality, fresh/popular content for specific queries. Clustering the results together by the source of the content will help users choose the best possible suggestion and save a mobile-click. 

You can help our algorithm select the proper images or titles for your carousel results by following our rich snippets guidelines on our developers site. In particular the guidelines for Articles: https://developers.google.com/structured-data/rich-snippets/articles 
Videos: https://developers.google.com/structured-data/rich-snippets/videos 

Note that this markup is purely advisory - Our system use a variety of signals to determine which content to display in SERPs. Just like with Rich Snippets, we do not guarantee showing content you marked up.

So... Apparently #CougarProject means a couple things. Who knew? ;)
