About Me

  • Hello you. I'm a 38-year old MSc student, studying Advanced Computer Science at Sussex University. I'm especially interested in Internet and mobile software, sensors and pervasive computing, user interfaces, and the process of developing great software.

    Before that I spent 11 years running Future Platforms, a software company I co-founded which makes lovely things for mobile phones, and which I sold in 2011.

    I read a lot, write here, and practice Aikido and airsoft. I live in Brighton, a seaside town on the south coast of the UK, with two cats and a clown.

Tom, you and Barnara got it right - the application should really follow the underlying UI methaphor/behavior... From the developer's perspective, initially it seems such consistency is the right approach, as developers are deploying the same app across many devices... but in reality, the typical end-user won't, and having applications change such behavior just confuses things...
