General Mills says that if you download a coupon for Nature Valley or "Like" Cheerios on Facebook, you're not allowed to sue them for, say, misleading you about their ingredients:
So it can continue to lie about its products, General Mills claims that casual contact with them means consumers consent to arbitration.

"Hey, y'know what would make this informative rectangular area demographic chart more appealing to viewers? If we replaced the rectangle with a map of the U.S. But let's not transform the rectangle for a round Earth. In fact, let's just remove any part of the chart that goes through Canada. Or Mexico. Or the ocean."
"So you're saying everyone in the Southwest and South is White while New England and the Great Lakes is mostly Hispanic?"
"Yeah, and a 50-mile wide strip of Maine constitutes 8% of the East Coast in 2060."

This is perhaps the most awkward advertisement I've ever seen.

Add current page's feed in Android
In the web view on the Android client, it would be great to have a "Subscribe" menu item which would find the RSS <meta> tag in the current page and let you add it to Feedly.

Desired flow: Read an article in Feedly.  Click a link to someone else's blog.  Say "Hey, this is pretty neat."  Subscribe right away.
Current flow: Read an article in Feedly.  Click a link to someone else's blog.  Say "Hey, this is pretty neat."  Figure out what the blog title is and how to spell it.  Go back to the main Feedly UI.  Click the main menu button.  Click Add Content.  Click Search.  Slowly type the title if you can remember it.  Hope Feedly knows about this blog already.

The pop-up UI for the three "Featured" items in the Home view is jarring.  Why is it unlike the UI for all the other articles on the screen?
Edwin Khodabakchian's profile photo
Because the featured article are layout as a grid and the rest of the articles as a list. We are working on unifying some of these.

A sign that airbnb didn't do usability testing on its terms of service: it's longer than a NaNoWriMo. Yet their company strategy for the year fits on one page. I wonder if your login session will expire before you can read it.

This chart makes good use of information density to highlight historic trends. I was not previously aware that Grover Cleveland and Woodrow Wilson were the only non-Republican presidents between the Civil War and the Great Depression.

I exercise my left brain by writing code to make the Internet a better place.  I exercise my right brain by drumming, dancing, and taking photos.  I exercise other people's brains by wearing weird hats, being radically self-expressive, and blogging about complex issues.

I was born, grew up, and currently live in Boulder, Colorado.  But I consider myself a citizen of Earth and try to consider humanity my in-group.  It's not us versus them, it's us making sustainable decisions versus us making the world a big mess.
