Sure you can evaluate an interface by how ‘usable’ it is, but usability is such a bland, toothless concept. Alan Cooper — UX pioneer and author of About Face — argues that we should treat our interfaces like people and do what we do best: moralize about their behavior. In other words, we should praise a good interface for being well-mannered — polite, considerate, even gracious — and condemn a bad interface for being rude.

— 

A good rationalization of why you’re right to be offended by software as much as you are.

Anonymous said: T-Pain spoke out in great lengths against homophobia in hip-hop. Will he win a Grammy, nope. Will he be held up as a hero, nope. Will the media even cover this, nope. Will people argue that ignoring T-Pain has nothing to do with racism, yes.

T-Pain is the best.

The End of American Exceptionalism
