comment Best fonts for improving reading experience
Question seems fine to me - it's not "What font do you recommend", it's "How to choose a high-readability font for a website" - heaps of criteria.

comment New generation of 'Edit' icon that is not a pencil?
One of the classic difficulties in icon design is that you need to think the other way round: the thought process needs to be image ⇒ concept, not concept ⇒ image. You can go from "Edit" to ∞ via the fact that things can be edited ∞ times - but does it go the other way? I doubt that someone seeing a ∞ would think "Okay, ∞, infinity... hmm... what can be done infinite times? I know, editing!"

You might find this article interesting: HSP Color Model — Alternative to HSV (HSB) and HSL (where the P stands for Perceived brightness)

comment How can I turn my old tablet PC into a Cintiq-like pen tablet?
Awesome! I wonder - do you know if your software would work with one of the new Windows 8 Cintiq Companion tablets, enabling it to be plugged into a PC and used like a regular Cintiq? I know that a lot of people are shunning the Cintiq Companion because after a few years, once the RAM/processor are obsolete and the battery has conked out, it becomes essentially useless: this could make them more versatile and give them more re-sell value

comment Interaction of Color (albers) - book question
I don't know the book in question but for those sorts of optical illusions, you normally need three colours with a mid colour that is somewhere between the other two. There are a few examples of the principle that this looks like it's supposed to illustrate in this answer to another question "How to use poor colours well"

comment Icon to signify “wish” or “wishlist”?
There are lots of types of website... Is it an ecommerce site/shop, or a task/to-do/bucket list site, or tickets, or dating, or something else? Is the wishlist for the user to store things for themselves, or is it for their friends to browse when choosing them gifts, or both, or something else?

comment Icon to signify “wish” or “wishlist”?
Wow, there's not much on the Noun Project for "wishlist"... at time of commenting, the only result is a 'User deals' icon that to me looks more like "slavery and people trafficking"... not a good look.................
