The “buzz word” for this year's show was “word processing,” or the use of electronic equipment, such as typewriters; procedures, and trained personnel to Maximize office efficiency. At the I.B.M. exhibition a girl typed on an electronic typewriter. The copy was received on a magnetic tape cassette which accepted corrections, deletions and additions and then produced a perfect letter for the boss's signature. The perfect letter could then be sent over telephone lines to other offices around the country, or the typewriter could also be used as an input device for computers.
Sketchnotes of my 2014 IA Summit talk. By Jason Alderman.
Clearing out an old screenshots folder. My machine is lousy with them.
Sketched this up not long after I first acquired my Mac Mini. Never did get around to getting one made but I'd still find it handy. Imagining it as a single sticker on clear vinyl.
Branding weirds language.
If relationships between components aren't defined your ecosystem map is a prettified list. Might capture understanding but won't further it.
I had to write one of these messages once, unfortunately. Internal systems were so bonkers that someone had to dig in and manually remove email addresses from a few places. It had the appearance of automation but was definitely not.
What an irritating message. I'm not a user but I'd be pretty ticked if I were. The gall to call it "your trusted health companion" after selling your data.
If you’re going to write an article about a design technique or approach, put it in context:
Dan Brown tweeted this to me as a response of sorts to me complaining on Twitter about people complaining about design articles that don't break new ground.
A total of two children and six adults with cognitive impairment died over the past five years as a result of ingesting the pods, the CPSC reported.
Easily preventable through a more thoughtful and inclusive design process.

The correct answer was "passwords must contain at least one special character"
Peter Morville's UX honeycomb. Not sure how useful of a lens this is for me personally but trying it on regardless. I think a lot of my interest on projects falls under "credible" and "useful".
Purposeful is a word that comes up for me a lot which I suppose might map to valuable.
Pre-checked checkboxes are a weird icon choice but the microcopy here is A++.
Alpha-gal allergy, also known as meat allergy or Mammalian Meat Allergy (MMA), is a reaction to galactose-alpha-1,3-galactose (alpha-gal), whereby the body is overloaded with immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies on contact with the carbohydrate. The alpha-gal molecule is found in all mammals apart from Old World monkeys and the apes, including humans.
Someone with Mammalian Meat Allergy could eat a person, but not a hamburger.
Information overload sucks, so we aggressively filter. Noise becomes signal. Lack of meaning is confusing, so we fill in the gaps. Signal becomes a story. Need to act fast lest we lose our chance, so we jump to conclusions. Stories become decisions. This isn’t getting easier, so we try to remember the important bits. Decisions inform our mental models of the world.
Good summary and categorization of cognitive biases.
