Minimum Usable Design

This is a pretty useful article about designing ANYTHING.

http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2012/05/29/mud-minimum-usable-design/

Aim for your Minimum Usable Design (for designers. For devs, you're looking at Minimum Viable Product, which is VC-speke). Once you've got that nailed down and functioning, you're 50% of the way there. Now set your next goal for 50% of the way to the end (note, that means you'll be 75% done when that goal is met).

Lather, rinse, repeat...

Quicktime

Dear Apple, Inc.

45 MB is a LOT of download to upgrade a video codec (Quicktime). Perhaps you should ditch it and support an open format?
