  2. Identify the top websites in your sector, and deconstruct their website’s logic.

    Prosperous brands organize their websites and social media platforms on the advice and research of very expensive media agencies studies, advice, and data.

    Reverse engineer their behavior and use it to your advantage. There’s nothing wrong with incorporating and adapting what the top websites are doing.

  3. Make it tablet-y! No one wants a PC experience replicated exactly on a tablet.

    Is the enterprise user experience overhyped? via diginomica

    This is why enterprise Web SaaS apps cannot deliver on a stellar and engaging mobile experience.  They are pushing busy, text field oriented interfaces onto a smaller screen with very different navigational controls and user flows.  This is a cognitive disconnect that causes users to abandon mobile apps in droves.  It’s much better to start mobile first.

  4. Krantzberg’s Six Laws Of Technology


    1. Technology is neither good nor bad; nor is it neutral.
    2. Invention is the mother of necessity.
    3. Technology comes in packages, big and small.
    4. Although technology might be a prime element in many public issues, nontechnical factors take precedence in technology-policy decisions.
    5. All history is relevant, but the history of technology is the most relevant.
    6. Technology is a very human activity - and so is the history of technology.

  7. But I also want an option that’s testing ONLY. Some kids don’t show up for class not because they’re slackers, but because they’re obsessed with their work in the lab, or they have better things to read, or their teachers are awful — or they just cannot stand to be condescended to for one more minute. Let’s acknowledge that, just as some kids just crumble under test pressure, some kids cannot maintain the finely orchestrated, four-year-long social performance that is required to conform, make nice, and fulfill the arbitrary requirements of dozens of adult strangers, some of whom frankly should not be teaching, or who like to penalize students who challenge them.

  8. If we read the practices of Christian worship, we would conclude that Christians are a people whose year doesn’t simply map onto the calendar of the dominant culture.

  9. When one forgets the distinction between method and truth, one becomes foolishly prone to respond to any question that cannot be answered from the vantage of one’s particular methodological perch by dismissing it as nonsensical, or by issuing a promissory note guaranteeing a solution to the problem at some juncture in the remote future, or by simply distorting the question into one that looks like the kind one really can answer after all. Whenever modern scientific method is corrupted in this fashion the results are especially unfortunate. In such cases, an admirably severe discipline of interpretive and theoretical restraint has been transformed into its perfect and irrepressibly wanton opposite: what began as a principled refusal of metaphysical speculation, for the sake of specific empirical inquiries, has now been mistaken for a comprehensive knowledge of the metaphysical shape of reality; the art of humble questioning has been mistaken for the sure possession of ultimate conclusions.
