This article discusses how UI decisions can persist when their original rationale is gone.. I found it while wondering whether to buy UI Bloopers (I decided not to partially on the strength of the Amazon review - "For the most part, the book's value can be captured by reading the seven page table of contents carefully". Hmm, £21 for that?). I also noticed that the User Interface Hall(s) of Fame/Shame have gone, they used to be at iarchitect.com. Boo.

Skin pantones

According to this article from the Sydney Morning Herald The Simpsons' skin tone is RGB 255, 217, 15 while Marge's hair is RGB 23, 145, 255. Isn't that useful!

Oh dear, they will be cross
