Designing for Imperfection

A couple days ago, I posted an article on UX Magazine about inexact design. It follows from the way I have been working for a long while, and some presentations I've given, but after reading some other work on electronics design and service availability (and talking with some other smart UX folks) I codified it a bit more.

Usability of accordions

No, I don't mean harmoshkas, but boxes with sliding parts, e.g.:

We are going to use such box on the main page (in the bottom of column - not
very important content there, but still) and just wondering about
interactions. Current proposition is:

1. Accordion auto-switches to the next part after every 5 seconds when mouse
pointer is outside the box.

2. OnMouseOver any part-title bar opens this part (with latency 200ms).
