Adapting Websites to Users

Sunday, July 06, 2008 - Lawrence Hsu | BC

It's hard to build a website that will please everyone. Some people respond best when they see basic facts on a clean page, others when they have a lot of charts and graphs at their fingertips.

UI Lessons from the Real World

Monday, March 24, 2008 - Lawrence Hsu | BC

User interface isn’t a subject specific to computers. Every object in the real world has an interface and understanding it is crucial for a correct usage. Some objects are well designed and can offer different types of good reactions when we interact with them. Others aren’t that good and the designer might have missed the point.
