For every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and SNAP! The job’s a game!

Trails of EasyExtend » Blog Archive » Guido is my problem - Projects and projections

Our software is as brittle as 15-20 years ago. Reusable objects and framework superstructures have failed. UML has failed. Even design pattern have failed as they turned out to be more idiomatic than universal. What’s left are lightweight programming languages which let us glue things together. Some are user friendly and don’t suck badly. That’s still the best we have.

Decisions vs. Choices

The difference between choices and decisions is subtle , some of it has to do with the quality of your ingredients and some of it has to do with compromise at the wrong stage of development. Is the process all that matters? A process that is used to constantly create new possible options and choose from those instead of making Frankenstein out of the options given? The design process will constantly emphasize the goal in the iteration of options leading to a choice. I don’t think that definition clear, but it’s the best we came up with.

m mi works : blog : on interaction architecture

Not a line I draw ends up on an end‑user screen. Not a word I write is compiled into code. Not a sentence I say instructs users. I draw, write and talk to enable the specialists I work with to excel at what they do and realise inspiring software for my clients.

I’m not a graphic designer, I am an interaction architect.

Front to back » Blog Archive » Don’t (just) design what your users want

Both Norman and Hansson agree on one thing: user involvement alone is not enough. Designer vision, expertise and discipline is a vital part of successful innovation.

even if they disagree on who you're designing things for.


Peter's Blog - Lazy Function Definition Pattern

by 1 other (via)

This article examines a functional-programming design pattern I’ve been calling Lazy Function Definition. I’ve repeatedly found this pattern useful in JavaScript especially when writing cross-browser libraries that are efficient at runtime.
