Learning to design is a never ending adventure, because learning to see, is, just like learning to speak, a wonderful voyage that never ends. A love declaration to my profession.

Why isn't there a distinction made between Apple's graphic design, which to me is kitsch (an apple with a bite out of it) and their product design which is not?

Hey,
I just read "A Web Designer on Fukushima".  I totally agree with your message (the bigger picture).  The plant failure was not caused by an earthquake, nor by poor technology.  It was caused by poor judgment.

I guess one of the things is: programmers see hackers in action all the time.  So building things "dummy proof" / "hacker proof" is embedded in everything we do.
Thinking: "no one could ever be this stupid or malicious" is a nonsense reasoning.

Why do we start the New Year again and again with a boring guilt trip, when we know that it won't help anyone? What if the resolution itself is the reason why we fail? We have the funny trait that we do what we shouldn’t do with more motivation, pleasure and esprit than what we should.

How about trying to be a bad bad boy, bad bad girl, bad bad man, bad bad woman, a very very bad bad person? Will that get us a better start? 

Obviously, we need to find good reasons to be bad. That is logically and rhetorically not as straightforward as finding good reasons to be good. So I hope that you’ll forgive me some logical and rhetorical tricks in the following five minutes of diabolical advocacy of the ultimate evil: a praise of the seven deadly sins.

There is system in our brain which works like protecting ourselves (personal identity) from doing bad things. It is naturally made with our socialization process. It is like emotion, ego etc. It works and makes a effect of fear to do bad things. (it is psychological process ) It will create a situation like fear. Actually it is for protecting one's personal image in the society, getting better impression among the surrounding people, relatives, and friends (especially people whom we respect, love, accept ext....)
Everybody will have such kind of natural protective wall in our mind (brain) which tempt to protect us from doing bad things, bad activities etc. It only creates some situation which effects like fear. But it cannot compel the individual to follow are good practices, avoid bad things. It only creates a fear effect. A sort of fear about losing social acceptance, fear, respect and fear of somebody looks down upon us, or if we were caught by people by doing bad things.

Due to this feature, we all have a possibility to do bad things when we are alone, If our bad mind tempt to do some bad things, it will give assurance to that system (Good mind- which can be called as our conscious mind) that now there is nobody to watch what we do, or nobody will know about your secret practice, Then we will be released from the influence of our conscious mind (which control us from doing bad things) and do bad things.

Sorry for long comment ( as it is a long one I have published this writing in my personal blog http://brahmadas.blogspot.com/)

My dream is automatic lists, that is,  if I insert "* " in the beginning of line, the next line should have "* " inserted automatically, since the next line is, most probably, the next list item

Roughly 33% of my excitement for Mountain Lion is based on the iA Writer updates.
