Interface Design Is Trickier Than it Seems

In the NY Times, David Pogue talks about designing usable user interfaces. This article reminded me of the discussions I frequently have with programmers -- often illuminating and always challenging.

In 10 minutes, Phil had talked me into designing a horror of an interface, something that nobody would ever understand or use. He also gave me a lesson in the difficulty of good interface design that I'd never forget -- and a lasting respect for the people who know how to do it right.
