World Usability Day 2010

Posted by Michael Gaigg

Today is World Usability Day. Check out online events and all the other events worldwide.

Why?

So many things are broken nowadays. We learned to live with it, blame ourselves and just fit in. But it doesn't have to be like that!

What?

Raise awareness for making things (and by things I mean pretty much anything that surrounds us, not only technology) easier, more self-explanatory, working. Technology has to serve us not the other way around!

How?

Teach your children to solve problems! Teach them to understand what they are doing, saying, arguing, using. Teach them to make educated decisions, to be critical about anything shiny, fancy, to not follow a hype blindly. Teach your children to think in the people they work with and to communicate well.

Teach our children what we are doing today and tomorrow will be (even) brighter.
