Avoid self-fulfilling prophecies in Most Popular lists

Say you've got a list of the Top 5 Most Popular Whatevers. Is it
reasonable to fear that these top 5 will stay in the top 5, just
because they are positioned as the most popular?

If so, are there any best practices (or even anything you've used
successfully) for building an algorithm that will make sure the top 5
list isn't just a self-fulfilling prophecy?

Usability of bezel gesture actions for mobile?

This is a bit of a Hail Mary, but has anyone come across user testing or studies on the use of bezel gestures (i.e. swiping in from the left bezel onto the screen, or Microsoft's Edge UI)? I'm guessing MS must have done some testing but my Googling has proven useless in finding anything of use.

I'm trying to determine just how discoverable these types of gestures are, and trying to make a case for adding some kind of on-screen UI to surface functionality relegated to a bezel menu.

Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] AB testing non-public low-fi prototypes

Paper or electronic?

Is it the recruitment that's the hurdle, or the testing environment?

> My questions are:
> What low cost options do we have for recruitment and what's the fastest way to get eyes on the page?

You've always got the "finger in the air" approach - ask somewhere
online - your blog, a community you're a part of (with low UXer
population), Twitter (this one I have done, successfully).

We would be testing electronic prorotypes.

Don't Be Too Innovative with Your UI...

...so claims Rich Skrenta, founder of Topix.

"People don't lean forward and squint at web pages to figure out how
they work anymore. They instantly recognize -- within 100
milliseconds -- which class of site a page belong to -- search
result, retail browse, blog, newspaper, spam site, message board,
etc. And if they don't recognize what kind of page they're on, they
generally give up and hit the back button.

Our news pages didn't conform to any standard metaphor. Some people
thought they were search results.
