a shift in thinking?

January 18, 2011

Is it just me, or is there a lot more emphasis on usability lately?  Not just software, everything.

My time is valuable, I don’t want to waste it with mouse-clicks.  I don’t want to waste it by pulling on a push-door.  I don’t want to waste it by spending 10 minutes figuring out which of the 15 buttons on the stereo console in the car displays the odometer.  I think everybody is becoming more impatient with poorly thought-out designs.  This – I find thrilling.

Looking forward to a usable 2011.
