(Its a long title, but I needed a catchy one)
UX is about listening, understanding and being worried about how things can be made better.
As we solve experience problems with lifeless wireframes …there are so many experiences in the real world that need to be sorted for humanity sake.
As we inching closer to the digital world some best practices are to be created for the most sensible creature. What do body gestures mean? What does a choking voice mean? Soon we are going to forget all of it …since science says we become masters of what we practice more. If we are glued to the digital interfaces what can be expected of us? Sub conscious we are applying the digital paradigm to the real world…we are forgetting to live.
Insanity is existent and growing with varying degrees. And what is the fodder for it ? We just wont listen but want to be heard. To top it up we have the digital tools…that give instant gratifications. We are becoming impatient. We are becoming the masters and slaves of this digital ourosboros.
A person was killed by a mob for spreading a rumor about cow being slaughtered for beef. What! Can this be real?
IS is planning revenges and the super powers are planning vengeances. Or it is vis a versa.
Some armed men just enter public places and open fire at innocent people.
I am sure there would be many examples and each will be more dastardly in some way.
If only compassion and empathy are taught in schools the world would be a better place. We would be bothered about giving better experiences to everyone around us and voila world would be a better place to live.
So if it affects you, listen to it… since now is the time to teach some sensibility to the sensible interfaces.
