Building experience through reverse engineering

I'm pretty green in interface design. I've read quite a lot but
often sit down to start a design and have a complete block. I realise
that there are a lot design patterns on the web, but it can be
difficult to really get a deep appreciation of them.

I'd like to build up some experience. Of course, the best way is to
'just do something'. However, students and newbies, such as myself,
perhaps don't have any real projects or sometimes long gap between
projects.

I was thinking about reverse engineering a couple of sites.

Standard message display time

hello, all,

is there a standard formula for determining length of time a message
overlay should display, e.g. 1 sec/word?

so that if you have a message overlay that automatically shows up on
screen load:
"Click on the green play button to start reading"
how long should you wait to fade it out?

thanks for your advice,
aya.

Sequoia, Diebold Voting Machines

So, when anyone voted today, or in the past weeks, did you use either
the Sequoia or Diebold electronic voting machines?

I voted in D.C. this morning, where each polling place has at least (or
maybe exactly) one Sequoia AVC Edge voting machine (
http://www.sequoiavote.com/productguide.php?
product=AVC%20Edge&type=Introduction ) and found the user experience
left a lot to be desired; it wasn't even equal to the farecard machines
at the D.C.

Intranet portal into more of an Information Workplace model. We expect to
spend several years on this strategy, evolving over time.

Focus o f List

Hey there peeps,

I had a couple of suggestions from people to try and keep this list focused
on IxD and not let the content go off in all directions. This does not
happen often here b/c of self selection mainly but every so often a topic
like "should I use this color or that color" comes up. While this may have
"DESIGN" relevance it is rare that it has IxD relevance, so I'm putting my
moderator goggles on and will try to guide people in the right direction and
interrupt threads from time to time that just seem like they are too
generic.

Risk Assessment (was: How many alternatives, concepts, or sketches are enough?)

Thanks Doug! Indeed, identifying important relevant factors and coming up
with estimates and corresponding probabilities for innovation/products and
services that will not exist for a number of years, is an interesting
challenge! Won't you join us in trying to figure that out? :)
