Who Owns Your UX Philosophy? / FeldThoughts
Interesting post from a VC about UX / UI and “owning” it. Worth checking out the discussion in the comments, as well.

“Tired of being bombarded with constant requests to share content on social media, bestow ratings, leave comments, and generally “join in on the discussion,” the nation’s Internet users demanded substantially less interactivity this week.” The Onion hits some nails on some heads.

“It’s like looking at an awkward love child of two designs.” / Cameron Moll
On wanting something more than responsive design, and the key bottom line: “do what works best for you”.

Carousels / Brad Frost Web
Carousels — “Organizational crutch” or solid interaction?

Zapier
Interesting tool for connecting your web apps together, e.g. triggering Quickbooks actions on events from Highrise.

(3) Finally, the people who use enterprise software are usually not the ones who purchase it!
