With all of us focused on our work and striving to making the best interfaces, I found this post by Cooper’s Golden Krishna refreshing. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in making this amazing digital experience and even be wowed by some of the ideas, that we fail (or I fail) to step back and say “wait…why do we need this? And does this really make our lives easier?”. It’s not just about slapping an interace on it (like us Portlanders like to birds on things) and Krishna provides some really great examples in this article.
As a bonus, if you’ll be in the San Francisco care on September 19th, Cooper is holding a round table to discuss this. So you should go.
