I quite like this article on UI design OSNews is running. It is a well written, well referenced summary of many of the things that have concerned me in recent UI trends. Also cool that the author another MS student with computing/HCI interests in their early 20s.
I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.— Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear from Frank Herbert’s Dune
