Advice from a former Apple director who coined the term “user experience”
Having worked on Appleâ€™s User Interface Technologies and introducing the term â€œuser experienceâ€ to company execs in the early 90s, Mitch Stein knows a thing or two about how humans interact with computers.
â€œThe term â€˜user experienceâ€™ is more than just aesthetics to me,â€ Stein said. â€œWe have relationships with our technology. User experience is not just eye candy â€” it promotes a positive relationship between humans and technology.â€
Stein spoke earlier this week at the Hacker News Meetup in Seattle, and provided some tips to GeekWire.
