"I don't think distrust is what this poll really measures. I think what they're measuring, rather, is the level of free-floating, self-congratulatory offendedness. Their poll shows this narcissistic feigned indignation is on the rise."

"To get to the point where we can design systems to take advantage of complex physical interactions will require an taking a new look at how the fields of kinesthetics, anthropometrics and optical flow , relate to interface design. These fields will be as important to designers as information architecture and form giving are today."

I agree: it is much easier to invent stuff in your head than to deal with actually designing, printing, and iterating. The latter results in something that works, though.

"In 2010, anyway, this is my own personal vision of informatic technology at the service of the full range of human desire and complexity. Not a word of it is intended as a “solution” to what are inevitably and correctly local social or political challenges…but it is intended to give people everywhere better tools with which to join such struggles.

"Social objects are the artifacts that bring people together around shared interests or topics. They are the content assets around which communities form and grow. For a community-driven site like YouTube, the social object is the video.

"on all of its platforms, Apple has far from exceeded expectations it has itself set for typography. Just take one look at the Fonts panel that appears in any Cocoa app (e.g., TextEdit) to see what I mean. It hasn’t changed in nearly a decade, and it’s still far more difficult to use than it should be." I have been complaining about this years. Yes.

A lucid counterpoint to the "iPad as stifler of creativity" meme.

"There’s a liberation in open things (and opening things) but there’s a far greater one in how things can open up people."

"The tricky thing that holds back the paperNet is both data and scale. It is relatively easy for someone to print out a sheet of paper at home, but it is more difficult to populate that paper with interesting statistics and worthwhile information. Home printers don’t scale..."
