What's this? A blog that is oriented toward managers which actually has useful information for a developer, too? I know, it surprised me as well. Check out the post entitled The 37th Button On Your Remote Control, over at BNET which offers a refreshing perspective for managers tasked with overseeing people who design applications - or really, anything intended to be used by humans.
While you're recommending reading to your manager, have them take a look at the excellent (and freely available to read online) book by 37signals, Getting Real. Both of these writings have a very good handle on how less truly can be more when it comes to application design.comments powered by Disqus
