The significance of the colors in the diagram on the whiteboard might not be what you think they are when the person doing the drawing is red-green colorblind.

There's a usability lesson here, or at least a reminder of one.

    Don't feel bad -- it's something you have to keep telling yourself if you're the one with the Daltonism, too. I constantly remind myself that nobody else is going to like the thing I picked out, etc.

    It's irritating to others that I always ask for something else if I'm given a color as an identifier. "The red one!" "You're going to have to tell me something else about it." If I had that on a tape, it would remove perhaps 3% of all the speaking I do in a year.

    Usually, given choices, I pick red or gree
