Designers are not researchers: the difference between design and social research from Sam Ladner is worth a read by all designers engaging in this kind of work. I suspect we’re all guilty of it. My excuse would be that sometimes its necessary and useful for designers to do the research, but I’m not sure I would be arguing the point the other way around, that social scientists should do a bit of design.

PromptDown is a super simple, browser-based teleprompter for mobile devices (ideally Safari on iOS) that uses markdown for its markup. Paste some markdown text in the window and hit prompt. Nice, especially given that the other teleprompter apps are so overpriced.
