After a long break from blogging, I present to you a new post on control schemes and stimulus response compatibility.

I normally don't double-publicize a single post, but after sleeping on this one and reading it again, I realized it made almost no sense.  Let's call this my advertisement for the "director's cut" edition of this post.

New post on the need for user centered design and the dangers of overapplying it.  Procrastination powers activate!

I'm crowd-sourcing for an image I saw on Reddit a while back but can't find: During the olympics, there was a picture of some medalists on the platform where the bronze medalist is beaming and the silver medalist is crying, which is a great picture for counterfactual thinking.  I remember the Reddit link headline joking about China being sad to get 2nd place when other people are happy to just be 3rd, if that helps.

This one pretty much has nothing to do with video games.  I'm failing at this blogging thing.  Sadly, I think that just means more people will be interested by it.

Apparently, figure-ground segregation blows Reddit's collective mind.

I think I have enough content on my blog now to make it public.  If this is the first time you've seen me post this here, I've started a blog about how human factors and psychology inform and explain good video game design.

Drove by this today.  Almost got in a wreck thanks to it.

I'm crowdsourcing a paper I'm looking for:

The experiment had people do a building block structure matching task and demonstrated that when the sample to match was nearby, people would return to it frequently, whereas the farther away it was and the harder it was to access, the more people would memorize as much of it as possible each time they visited it.

Ring any bells?
