Idea: Design your UI as if your user is constantly in an emergency. Put nothing in their way, make everything obvious, make important things stand out.

(this post inspired by like 15 apps that all tried to show me their fancy new features while I was in a hurry)

@impiaaa In the case of software development or system administration, I suggest designing as if the user is in a blind rage.

@impiaaa and for the love of god stop caching everything without an obvious invalidation strategy

(ran into something like this with kmail about 30 minutes ago)

@impiaaa ah, like the site where every measure of coercion is used to make you book a hotel as far as possible because the last room of this type is going to be booked by someone else aaaaaaaaaaahh!
