  1. some really great insights into this area of experience and the optimization of the use of technology.

  2. A very interesting interview – thank you for posting. I was also pleased to hear Charles’ “on the spot” review of the Skype first user experience; I wonder – did you send Skype a bill for that insight? 🙂 For others who don’t have time to listen the the whole interview, look for another post on this site called: Why Angry Birds is so successful and popular: a cognitive teardown of the user experience.
