This board is a collection of either good or ugly design I found during my walks (and had people staring on me on why I would be taking pictures of trivial things). It is also a good HCI mental exercise and reminder when creating user interfaces. They are always there, but how many did you ever noticed? Inspired by Normans book and my SIT HCI classes during 2012 Spring.
