We can still have fun debunking myths even thought we can't blow up concrete trucks, built giant Lego balls or play tennis on the wings of moving aircraft. The design culture is riddled with myths, legends, theories and assumptions that even the grizzled designer can get caught up, "Aesthetics are not important if you have good usability", "Usability testing is expensive" and "People don't scroll" to just name a few. But people never read on the web anyway so I'm sure you didn't make it this far. [346]

Great talk! We need more design-oriented talks at OpenWest. I appreciate how each point was backed up by research, and it was fun how the talk was presented as a game.
