By day, Brad Brooks is a technology executive in Vancouver, BC. By night, he is a popular local talk radio host. Brad recently read my book, The Inmates are Running the Asylum and became a convert to the concepts I wrote about a decade ago.
He quickly asked to interview me on his show. Brad clearly sees the problem and its solution, and the interview neatly recaps the basic ideas in the book. The sad thing is that so little has changed. It all just means that we have to continually beat the drum for design otherwise we will drown in hard-to-use high-tech products.
You can listen to the interview on the Brad Brooks Show Web site.
Alan Cooper is the co-founder of Cooper and a pioneer of the modern computing era. He created the programming language Visual Basic and wrote industry-standard books on design practice like “About Face.”
