Red Pen
A great example of: 1) humane copywriting, 2) an effortless intro, 3) effective and not-overbearing transitions and animations, 4) good use of color, 5) nice design with good whitespace, 6) relying on the interface to communicate, rather than loading it down with words.

Access For People Without (Yes, Without) Disabilities
Sometimes, when people think of accessibility, they picture wheelchair ramps running up side entrances of buildings, on-board lifts on public buses, and large toilet stalls in many public bathrooms. Although these features provide invaluable and needed access to people with disabilities, they are “potent symbols of separateness,” as University of Oregon professor Polly Welch put it. If they are usable only by a person with a disability, the wider community does not typically appreciate the value of inclusion for this person.

But if everyone else also uses this accessibility feature, it has two dramatic effects: it increases the market reach for the business that sells and markets this product, and increases awareness of the economic and cultural value of the disability market.

29 Things I, as a designer, wish more tech startups knew, by Stephen Anderson @ The Pastry Box Project
Focus on the experience, not the product. Assume people won’t want to use your product—in fact, they don’t! Except for the early adopter/beta-junkie, most people have existing habits; you’re competing against the inertia of existing behaviors.
