“When the University of California at Irvine campus was first built, they just put the buildings in. They did not put in any sidewalks; they just planted grass. The next year, they came back and built the sidewalks where the trails were in the grass. That’s what haxies are to the Mac software market. Haxies are those paths in the grass.”

John Siracusa channeling Larry Wall

I’m less interested in the Mac side of this, more interested in the fact that grass-not-sidewalks is just a really cool design hack.

“Maybe 25 year olds will start demanding news from yesterday, delivered in an unshareable format once a day. Perhaps advertisers will decide ‘Click to buy’ is for wimps. Mobile phones: could be a fad. After all, anything could happen with print. Hard to tell, really.” Clay Shirky (via Newspapers are, pretty much, dead. - Boing Boing)

Alex Goldman: Have you thought about bringing in, say, like an ethicist to, to vet your experiments?

 

Christian Rudder, founder of OkCupid: To wring his hands all day for a hundred thousand dollars a year?

TLDR interviews OkCupid founder Christian Rudder about experimenting on its users without informing them.

I don’t feel quite as condemnatory of OkC’s “experiments” as I did of that particular Facebook one (in a way, they’re part of OkC’s charm), but this is still the worst of tech bro tone deafness.
