I hold a senior position at Insync. No-one’s older than me. And I break things a lot. Even my position (Old Guy Who Breaks Things) defies contraction to a snappy IT acronym. I like to think (but choose not to ask) that my employers took me on in an enlightened attempt to reach out to that marginalised community, the Users. They’re always breaking things, being slow to learn and even slower to change. It takes an old person to empathise fully with that. I’ve been in post for nearly two years now, and my youngers and betters think it’s high time they saw a return.
So I have agreed to publish some of my findings. This week: buttons.
