There was a comment over at Jeff Atwoods latest post “Meet the inventor of the mouse wheel“:
“The solution to computer illiteracy is to learn, not to cut the capabilities of the system for everyone. That’s the triumph of ignorance.”
Is that really the point? Whatever the developer decides is what’s right? People should adapt to the computer, no matter how poorly designed, rather than adapting the computers to people?
To me, the point of pushing the boundaries with technology, is to make the technology easier to use. In face, that’s the underlying theme of my entire career. Using my knowledge and skill to make someone else’s job easier. Making my job easier.
