Dear Garrett and Bill,
Maybe you and everyone else on this list remember that Kresten asked
you for your opinions. Have you told Kresten how bad the interface
really is in your view?
Also, my impression is that one needs to look just a little bit
further than the interface. The idea behind it is very nice and it
might help people change their lives. I also know that for
researchers, the interface is the least important thing. Researchers
want to collect data and don't have time to be bothered by something
silly like an interface. (Even though as a software developers and
researcher, I know that good interfaces help collecting accurate data).
Now, I agree that the interface needs some severe adjustments and I
expect Kresten and his team to work on this in the future. However, I
think that the way Garrett and Bill critisize this work is indeed a
bit harsh. I know that Kresten is fully aware of the problem, but if
you're a scientist, it may be a little difficult to pay equal
attention to functionality and looks. Perhaps, as a member of this
great Revolution community, you could help him?
