We All Want to be Magicians
An oppinion piece about a certain twitter client, which Dave Wiskus has magically turned into a thoughtful critique of himself and the design community at large. I sincerely enjoy this level of introspection. Be sure to read the entire post but I'll leave you with a teaser:
As magicians, we’re not just observing their moves and misdirections, we’re studying them. And while I can’t speak for anyone else, it seems to me that the irritation is not that the tricks aren’t well-executed, it’s that they’re very by-the-book. We’ve seen these tricks before.
