In honor of my dad's 70th I thought I'd post his "Rules" to my blog. They're pretty funny, and I think (sometimes) they can be applicable to interaction design . . .
Rule #1 People are stupid
OK, I know that sounds harsh but really, sometimes people are stupid.
Rule #2 Don't do anything stupid
This is just common sense here. If I have to explain it to you, read rule #1.
Rule #3 Time
As in, the solution to any problem is time. Got a problem? Not sure what t do about something? With a thoughtful application of time you will figure it out. Etc.
That's it! Rules to live by, thanks! Happy Birthday Dad!
