  2. business licence registration #uxfail

    Yo, Dalton, here’s what I want on the website:

    -business name
    -address
    -credit card info

    Nothing more. Thanks.

    Tumblr just deleted this post four times.

    update, apparently you have to be under 22 to figure this out. guess i lost my chance a while ago.

  6. Skeuomorphisms

    Good or bad? Or just lazy, because it means you can repeat traditional metaphors on the screen rather than invent new ways of imagining activities and interactions?
