The Best Interface

    In general designers talk about UI in terms of ”good” and ”bad”. MacOS having amazing interfaces (maybe not) and Android is horrible.

    But if we abstract from those simple terms and look deeper – the working design is one where each element is brining the value.

    And it does not matter which color and size are used. In great design each element has a purpose and a reason. It will be easy to describe what element are doing and what value are brining. We should aspire to keep only trully important in the UI.

    Each element: border around the text, buttons, fields, pop-up, dash, icon or input are brining a message to the interface. And by removing those small bits of unnecessary information we can make the main action more prominent and easier to use.

    The best interface is the one which you don’t need to use.

    Summary of the lecture about Future of the Family

    I collected main points for myself about the future of the family and work based on the lecture from Ekaterina Shulman.

    Екатерина говорит, что в моде просветительская действенность. Но её печалит, что разговоры посвящены прошлому. Она считает, что пока мы не определим желаемое будущее, мы не разберемся с прошлым.

    Базовые изменение 20 века индустриализация и урбанизация.

    Идет 4 волна индустриализации. Новая промышленная революция. Роботы, глобализация, автоматизация, общая слежка, смерть приватности, изменения жизни городов, изменение моральных норм, трансформация жизни людей.


    Идет переход от индустриального к пост-индустриальному обществу. Пост-ресурсов, пост-труда. Автоматизация и роботизация делает труд все более дешевым и менее затратным, требующим меньше человеческого участия.

    Второй тренд — информационное общество: всеобще инфо пространство и траспорентность. Государства и корпорации следят за гражданами. А гражданам открываются все больше и больше механизмов стоящие за гос структурами.

    Будущее семьи

    На институт семьи больше будут влиять не признание гомосексуальности, а экономические реалии. В первые в истории человечества стало возможным выживание в одиночку. Раньше, цель создания семьи была в совместном выживании и выращивании детей, которые в старости будут вас кормить.

    Теперь глваной “угрозой” семьи являются так называемые singles, люди ведут одинокий образ жизни, не заводящие детей и не образующие пары.

    Новая формула включает в себя дистанционную работу в виртуальном пространстве. Люди больше и больше будут проводить времени вместе. Поэтому выбор тех с кем они живут становится более значимым.

    Изменился механизм рекрутинга половых партнеров. Раньше это была семья, рабочий или учебный коллектив. Сейчас, благодаря интернету, человечеству доступен весь мир. В тоже время, так как не семья ни общество теперь не несёт ответственности за выбор людей — то на плечи человека ложиться ответственность выбора партнера.

    Люди учатся общаться и понимают, что в сказанное в сети остается в сети навсегда. Люди из прошлого, всегда будут пребывать в вашем круге общения. Это повышает цену общения и социальных контактов.

    Food Тracking and Health App

    Besides being active or looking at their phones humans eat. A lot. And to track what you had is hard. There are smart forks, sensors, and apps. Usually with manual input. There is no magic in punching fats and carbs in a table.

    Food box providers, canteens, or restaurants already have all food data. Why not share it?

    Unite food tracking with lunch boxes and canteens

    Excluding cases when a doctor has to guide the patient, I am talking about people with a desire to have a healthier life.

    A potential customer of the service may look for a canteen or lunch box service, which provides food data. Data tracked via Maps can show restaurants that provide food data.

    As soon as the place has been found the client has all information about the menu, portions, carb, calories, fats, etc. Menu and portions suggestions based on lifestyle, sports goals, and allergies.

    When a client buys food via the app or pays on a cash desk, data immediately transferred to the phone. If the client does not finish the meal – the record may be removed from the list.

    At the end of the week data combined into a report. This approach may help to bring more customers to stores, predict food supply, and make people’s lives better.
