Siteseeing: What happens in Vegas...

...becomes a kiosk confessional where you can tell the world what was
supposed to stay in Vegas.

Sadly, the concept is undermined by a distinct lack of juicy
confessions (example: "Having the time of our lives!") and a weirdly
clunky interface.

Here's what I'm wondering: I think this would be more fun if they
implemented a negative ratings system, where viewers (assuming there
are any) punish people for not being forthcoming with genuine dirt.

Bottom Line Design Awards

>From Business 2.0:

"Good design is nice to look at, but great design exhibits beauty
that's more than skin-deep -- it integrates form, function, and market
need. The best place to see the latter, of course, is the bottom line,
which is why we created the first industrial design awards to honor
products not just for their beauty but also for their commercial
success."

Hypotheses about tasks

OK - so after conversations with several people, all of whom I've been
talking with separately, here are some hypotheses that seem to be taking
shape:

1) "The difficulty of completing a task is a function of the number of steps
involved in the task and the time it takes to perform each step."

2) "The time it takes to perform each step in a task is a function of the
relative complexity of the step and a person's willingness and/or ability to
understand and complete the step."

3) "The more difficult a task, the less likely it is to be completed."
