One User's Manifesto: 4 Practical "Rules" for Technologists
Hey! All you techies - step up and pay attention to these basics before you launch your next mobile app or website. As your users we not only expect these, we demand them:
- •First, like MDs, do no harm! We hate it when you mess up our stuff...
- •Second, remember Newton's Third Law of Motion: For every action, there will be a reaction. You get to heavily influence it, but we get to decide if we perceive it as good or bad and how much we will allow it to affect us.
- •Stick to your core and do it well. Just because you know it, does not mean you "get" it.
- •Finally, really do follow the KISS rule and keep it simple. The more I have to think about it, the less time I spend enjoying it the first time, which makes me not want to use it again.
