[Book Review] The Design of Everyday Things - Dan Norman

Hi

I know this review is coming 20 years late but it was an interesting
revelation that happened yesterday
and the book review is really a narration of what happened yesterday.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Me: (*Smiles again*) Dad, this book was written in 1988!

Dad: What ???

Yo gender-neutral singular pronoun has arrived atlast!

"They" has been used as an informal replacement for "he or she" or
"one", as in "Each student should hand in their assignment when they
finish it."

It's not grammatically correct, but it is universally understood.

collaborative group structures

There is a lot of conversation about working collaboratively on this
board. Mostly regarding results and software to facilitate. I have
identified four basic structures for group work that I am intimately
familiar with. I am curious what people are participating in, and if
there are other derivations?

A) Group think
Multiple people in a group. Disciplines might vary. The group marches
forward in lock step... while there may be diverse opinions, the
group makes democratic decisions.

I do a lot of writing in english, and when discussing IxD I need to refer to
the person using the product.
