Subject: What are your principles for making digital products/services

"Don Norman is dead wrong about this: "that something emotionally
appealing can basically make up for its lack of usability"

I don't think he is wrong, but rather we need to expand the scope of
our thinking about interfaces.

Take for teddybear robot or the Aibo.

They might not be usable, you might not control them 100% and they
might do stuff you didn't ask them to. But any kid will get an
affinity with this robot.

Subject: What are your principles for making digital products/services

Dave,

Don Norman is dead wrong about this: "that something emotionally
appealing can basically make up for its lack of usability". I may love a
beautiful object, but I didn't buy Philip Starck's lemon squeezer for
its aesthetic appeal; I was hoping to squeeze lemons. (This is the
piece-of-crap kitchen utensil illustrated on the cover of Don's
Emotional Design book).

There's a definition of kitsch that states that anything that purports
to be one thing, but actually does something else is kitsch. A pepper
mill in the shape of the Eiffel Tower, for example.

What are your principles for making digital products/services

I would like to hear what principles different people use when making
digital products.

Here is a the most fundamental of mine:

1. Start simple, stay simple.

It cannot be said enough. Less is more – much more, and there is a
very good explanation that it pays to understand.

If you do less you can measure more. If you can measure more you can
better experiment with what works.

Most products are simple, based on simple insights. Make sure that
you stay true to that idea as you develop until you know you have
done everything possible to test it.

Aesthetics and Interaction/Usability

I'm doing some study on the relevancy on Aesthetics to HCI, mainly
how Aesthetics can help improve usability of software.

Does anyone has any knowledge or would like to express their views on
this?

Kinetic Design (Core77 article)

for all you hardware interaction designers, this bit was just an
amazing piece on Core77 about Kinetic Design. I think some of us
might think this is just "interaction design", but to me the
discussion of aesthetics of motion really touches my heart string in
a wondrous way. There was this Pratt ID student I met a couple of
years ago who did his thesis on this, and it also really resonated
with me back then.

Data Visualisation

Hi all

I am looking for good examples, tools, techniques, readings on data
visualisation. Apologies this is so broad but I just want to do a scope of
what is out there on this subject.

Let me know if you have any good resources.

Many thanks

Dan
