Frank Chimero, Only Openings.
I post this because I agree with it. It is increasingly obvious that simplicity continues to be idolized in light of all evidence. Cars are more complicated, phones are more complicated, websites are more complicated, devices are more complicated. But the UIs have been refined and user patterns have been standardized: you only have to learn things once, rather than re-learning for every device.
We should be taking advantage of this standardization rather than re-creating functionality with a different name, or omitting it entirely in the name of simplicity.
+1 to the quote and the commentary.
