Thoughts / Software is just the means, not the end / January 13, 2007

People don’t want to spend hours browsing pages. People don’t want to spend hours uploading files, filling in long forms, or even browsing millions of images. People don’t want to code their way into an application. People don’t want to spend time on their computers.

People want to find information. People want to have their photos on their last vacation trip shared with family and friends. People want their address book to be everywhere they are. People want to know more about the issues they care about. People want to use the application because they want some work done to get their wages and spend their holidays taking pictures of themselves in gorgeous places and then share them with family and friends.

People don’t want to spend time on their computers. People want to do things. Software is just the means, not the end.
