Many thanks for the kind comments. I still feel a little exposed when writing, but I’m starting to enjoy it more. I’m trying to do all my own art/photos too, to try to keep it honest and personal.
I posted it on LinkedIn earlier and funnily enough someone mentioned a relative that had a similar experience with fax machines. She was convinced it wasn’t working because the document was still sat in the machine - how could it have sent when it was still there?
It seems like many folks have had similar experiences. It definitely gives us food for though about usability, human/computer interactions and how easy it is for people to misunderstand applications. It also sheds light on how easily people are conned by fraudsters and hackers.
It feels like safe network, for all of its internal complexities, can give a much simpler and safer user experience. The goal here remains utterly relevant and it is great to see it coming together week by week.
