Show #19: Lou Carbone, user experience expert.
In show #19 Bob and Pat interview one of the foremost authorities on understanding and shaping user experience, Lou Carbone. Why do people love Apple and hate cable companies, smile and recommend your startup to strangers or not go for your application although everything works? It’s all about the way your software and your company makes people feel and what they experience interacting with you and your product.
This is hard stuff for developers to get their heads around, but it’s critical to understanding what affect your products will have on your customers. We had a good talk with Lou, so no startup tool this week.
Bob has a quick tip for you: kosmix.com. And Pat offers a tip – check out the announcements coming out of Mix ’09 this week.
