Things I wish I knew in 2005
        Jon Mell / @jonmell
Social isn’t new
Haters gonna hate
Conrad Gessner warns of “confusion and harm” in the
               modern world caused by the overabundance of data

                He was talking about the dangers of too many books

                                                       In the 1550s

“Throughout history - all attempts to stop people from
freely moving, talking and working together ultimately
fail”



Jon Mell, Connections User Group, 2011
Pilots suck
People suck

Email doesn’t suck as
 much as you think

Status updates are
more important than
      you think
We’ve been asking the wrong question
But UX is the most
  important thing
UX does not mean ‘pretty’
UX is not (usually) the opinion of one person
What do you want
them to do by the way?
Big data is going to
scare the crap out of
         you
This is just the beginning
Thank you -
have a great day
