- I keep writing these stupid iOS 7 posts because I cannot believe —it’s believable, so the flaw is with me— how bad most of what I’ve read about it is. These designer-celebrities, these tech-pontificators: they love to recite that “design is how it works,” yet in reviewing a redesign they haven’t bothered to consider what functionality it enables, what strategic ends it serves. They’re not thinking about ends at all, only the most superficial sort of means.
- The phrase “born on third, thought s/he hit a triple” is a good one, but it’s not that good. People have no idea where they were truly born, relative to the global population, relative to historical populations, relative to the future. People have no idea what they hit: not those who work hard, not those who slack. Nothing is so clear as that phrase suggests; it is hard to tell who “deserves” what, and what should be allotted based on deserving, when the world will allow its resources to be ethically divided. Anyway: people who angrily post that phrase online are almost certainly on third in all sorts of senses, and I’m sure they worked super-hard to get there, great hits everyone.
- Yeah, I don’t know.
