Digital patina

Had a look at this Flickr set today:
http://www.flickr.com/groups/desire_paths [*]
It shows examples of when humans have eschewed the predefined path to take a
shortcut instead. Really nice visualisation of the path of least resistance.

How have you observed this happening online?

The field of interaction design has broadened its focus from issues
surrounding one person interacting with one system to how systems are
socially and culturally situated among groups of people. To understand
the situations surrounding product use interaction design researchers
have turned to qualitative, ethnographic research methods.

Who would you like to see in a Debate?

I found this from 37signals quite interesting about not being enough debate
at web conferences.


I wanted to have some fun with this, at the same time use it as opportunity
to expand my knowledge network by asking you guys here, who from the UX
community would you pit up against each other and why? They don't have to
be well known names, just someone with a blog that we can reference and see
their viewpoints.

What to do? Do you guys have any suggestions?
