PET PEEVE.- 05.20.05
Half of my problem with the “world”. My biggest pet peeve in the world is with regards to the world of design and usability/HCI/engineering/programming/etc. This is the first part… Creatives: it needs to be FUNCTIONAL. Usability/manufacturers: there is NO REASON for it to be ugly. I think i may have ranted a bit at UCSD cogsci HCI kids (i say kids, but i think they were all my age or older… and i was chatting about my design school experiences to an HCI class)… i keep getting the feeling some of them are too excited about making it usable, and forget that aesthetic is crucial too. Balance, people, balance. And nice find Core77 with this great dilbert epitomizing half my plight.
