How much longer must file icons look like a sheet of paper? When will we move beyond the metaphor that a computer document file – be it Word, php or CSS, is like a sheet of paper?
Dear @PARCinc, thanks for the Icon metaphors since 1970, but I think we’re ready to move beyond this…
The 97-page internal report on what the New York Times needs to do online contains many things of value, but it glosses over one important point: the way the NYT does journalism has to change, not just how it is promoted or displayed
What you write is as important as how it’s presented — journalists need to look within too… it’s not just about technology.
We mostly praise little girls for being pretty and sweet, and mostly praise boys for what they achieve. Then we are very surprised when that that same boy hits puberty, and treats the ‘pretty girls’ as ‘pretty objects’ to play with…and not as another human being, just like him.
