good read: The best interface is no interface

30 Mar

UnknownIn his book The best interface is no interface Golden Krishna makes us rethink the use of screens. The book reads like a novel and is carefully designed. He challenges us in an amusing and even hilarious way to how far we have come to be hooked to interfaces for everything and how ‘un’useful they sometimes are. There are alternatives to think beyond screens and make life less complex. I like the ‘Keep it Stupid Simple’ attitude. I also like the fact that Golden forces us to go back to the essence and then go for the best and most logical solution to a technical  or a design problem. A life with less buttons and less screens. A future using the essence of technology. For that he uses 3 principles: 1. Embrace Typical Processes Instead of Screens, 2. Leverage Computers Instead of Serving Them, and last but not least 3. Adapt to Individuals. A must read for designers and technology lovers I would say.
