  2. then easy to use and
  3. impossible to forget - but
  4. not necessarily self-explaining in the first place.

Remember when you used your first mouse!?

Highly academical.

At least so far... How can clutter be measured?

"The fact that one person's clutter is the next person's organized workspace makes it hard to come up with a universal measure of clutter."

"A team of MIT scientists has identified a way to measure visual clutter. Their research, published Aug. 16 in the Journal of Vision, could lead to more user-friendly displays and maps, as well as tips for designers seeking to add an attention-grabbing element to a display."

Interesting ideas ;)

Great stuff concerning interaction experience - highly academical?

Not really:

John Quelch has an interesting take on How To Be a Customer: "99% of marketing focuses on how to sell to customers. Very little attention is paid to why and how customers should sell themselves to marketers."

He continues to line out 5 bullets that we want to summarize as follows:

  1. Be Demanding - You have options!
  2. Be Respectful - Treat your vendor as a professional!
  3. Be Reliable - Don’t try to nickel and dime the seller!
  4. Be Surprising - Leave a good impression!
  5. Be Engaging - Treat the seller as a problem solver!
