Wow, I just published a similar article, we touch on a few similar points — I would like to know your thoughts on point 2 in your article after you’ve read the differences in mine.
Great work :)
Something we learn in product design and it seems you had the lesson as well is that the audience you intend is not always the audience you get. Many times a product is launched with expectations of one type of an audience and it hooks with the total opposite.
Great points! Absolutely language is a part of the interface, and that is my next blog post topic (although mainly for English this time).
If you don’t mind I may quote some stuff from this comment :)
I agree, actually the courses I never did well in was because they just weren’t challenging or from not learning anything…I always succeeded in the hard classes.
If a class was easy I personally felt it was just a waste of time and bogus (for me) and never felt why I should put so much effort into something I know.
I just looked into this tool, it’s a great tool and seems like a great option for company-wide usage.
Unfortunately this would become very expensive to do an open-source to the world library as it’s initial cost is around $3/user.
