Comment: Need more people who don't know what they're doing (Score 1) 260

I've developed lots of products, and any shortcomings the products had were the result of a lack of knowledge, not a surplus of it.

Either we failed to think through a certain use case, or there was a different demographic than we expected, or (most commonly) we failed to push a reviewer's hot buttons through lack of some feature or another.

Neophytes will tell you they want it simple, but they don't know how to design a product that will do what they want. That's why they're neophytes and not product designers.

I find these type of 'we need people who don't know what's impossible' comments to be a form of anti-intellectualism.

If you're not careful, you're going to catch something.
