I'm a UX specialist investigating analysis and design of multi-user interaction. I specialize in design of CLIs and GUIs for use by programmers, QEs, and release engineers.

My doctoral work centered around using discourse analysis techniques to understand design requirements for groupware. I am currently employed helping to design a complex versioning/building/testing system.

In my spare time, I write science fiction; my first novel Duplicate is available as an eBook, paperback, or hardcover. My second novel, We Were Gods is also available as an eBook or paperback. Yes, there's a fair amount of programming and user experience in each of them. ;)

My statements on these websites are not official statements from any employer of mine.

comment How to construct a cube in 3-point perspective
That looks a lot like two point perspective. Three point perspective would have the 'vertical' sides converging at point 3.

(b) does seem to answer it. However, there may be court precedent which alters the interpretation of this law...

comment Which UI treament of a large photo is more successful?
Those extra 10 pixels aren't adding much to the image--and people will zoom in anyway if they want more detail. Keep your edges clean and even and it'll feel more polished.

comment When using the blend tool in Illustrator, I get large white patches
Are you blending with a white portion of your image, rather than with a transparent part?

comment What aspects of HTML5 are replacing Flash?
To answer the question you asked before it got edited: Flash has historically been a bad security hole, and a processing power-hog. Try running a Flash game on, e.g., a slightly older Mac and performace sucks while the fans kick on max to try to cool the overloaded processor.

comment How to create a “zig zagged, jagged” effect with Photoshop?
Creating jagged / zig-zag edges takes one click. Three, if you include cutting and pasting from and back into Photoshop.

Pixlr also doesn't have one-click borders. This matters when you make a lot of bordered screenshots the way I do. But hey, if you want to just do a bunch of extra steps, go for it...
