  • &#x201C;exchange of value&#x201D; <br /> give something to a customer and get something back <br />
  • <br />
  • Ops: speed of your pageload <br /> Support: you want to do it yourself initially, then you can outsource it <br />
  • Switching costs are probably low <br /> Though you can try to offset them <br /> So lock-in? branding? <br /> There is no widget set, no standard viewing resolution, no common browser <br />
  • <br />
  • Tough to create, easy to criticise <br /> Makes it super annoying to get an uninformed opinion (and everyone has one). From your CEO, your boss, Product people etc etc <br />

  • Is design aesthetics? <br />

  • Bad News
  • Everybody’s a critic.
  • All I can think of when I see that effect is a public bathroom with little puddles in front of all the urinals. Why do I want something I like so close to someone else’s pee. Not that my pee would improve the situation. http://37signals.com/svn/archives2/reflections_are_the_new_drop_shadows.php
  • Just look at Wikipedia. In many ways, it is the perfect web application. How empowered do you feel when you use that site? You have easy access to almost anything you could ever want to know, and anybody who has used a computer in the past twenty years can figure out how to navigate it. Even my grandmother knows blue underlined text is a hyperlink. It’s a big flag that says “you can do something here!” - Anne K Halsall
  • Please make this bigger so the design “pops”. BUY
  • “Innovation”
  • If your idea is good, someone else is doing it.
  • Truly new things are indefensible.
  • “The minimum viable product is that version of a new product which allows a team to collect the maximum amount of validated learning about customers with the least effort.” - Eric Ries on MVP == RELEASE THAT S***
