Joel is another favorite of mine.Ã‚Â Like Paul Graham, almost anything he writes I find interesting.Ã‚Â His specialty is design.Ã‚Â Or at least, most of his writing that I read isÃ‚Â about design.Ã‚Â If you do interface design, Joel’s latest column should be of interest to you.Ã‚Â I don’t do interface design because I stink at it.Ã‚Â Thanks to Joel, though, I can at least recognize bad design, and sometimes even make suggestions to improve things.
Here’s a great part of his column:
Here’s why I’m afraid to turn off my cell phone: because I can’t always seem to muster the brain cells necessary to turn it back on.
It has two buttons on it, a happy green button and a scary red button. They have funny icons on them that don’t mean very much to me.
You might think that the green button turns it on. Green means go, right?
