Curse of the Information Professional

I started bitching about the user interface of the labeling computers at UPS yesterday because my sister had to go from using the keyboard to the mouse and back again. GOMS GOMS GOMS! The end of the semester has not released me from critiquing user interfaces everywhere I go. I fear it will be with me for the rest of my life. Curse you, Tom Brinck!

Bless him, rather, for opening our eyes to the disconnect between common sense and reality!

What the heck is that on the cover of the book? Blood? Are you supposed to ooze blood after reading his book? Or do you slit your wrists when you see a bad user interface? I'm glad I'm going into the books side of IS!

Then again, there's always paper cuts...

The problem with bitching about other people's sites is that "oh yeah? Your site's not so snazzy either" thing. Also, HCI has totally ruined my relationship with the color blue. I love blue. I prefer blue designs. Blue is a nice color. Argh! Damn you, true blue, damn you straight to hell! My next blog template will have blue in it. And lots of it! Nyah.

There's something about mr. brinck's art gallery that makes it hard for me to take him (and his ui opinions) all that seriously.

Congrats. This post was mentioned by Mr. Brinck in his opening comments to the class the class this term. You're now being quoted to students far and wide.

ha! so that's who he was talking about.

I think your statement is now part of the course objectives.
