  1. “Since humans are more pliable than computers, it can be

    easier to make a human fit the computer’s limitations than to design the computer to fit the human’s needs. When that happens, the human becomes a prisoner trapped by the computer rather than liberated by it.” - Karla Jennings 3
  2. 4

  3. “It is no accident that swearing is denoted by #&%!#$&.

    It’s what a typewriter used to do when you typed numbers when the Caps Lock was engaged.” - Dr. James Winter
  4. O I

  5. What experience and history teach is this — that nations

    and governments have never learned anything from history… - Hegel
  6. vi

  7. Interfaces must be designed to accommodate our ability to pay

    conscious attention to only one object or situation, called our locus of attention, at a time. - Jef Raskin
  8. ! Imagine if every Thursday your shoes exploded if you

    tied them the usual way. This happens to us all the time with computers, and nobody thinks of complaining. - Jef Raskin
  9. We learn by example and by direct experience because there

    are real limits to the adequacy of verbal instruction. - Malcolm Gladwell
