Happy new year! I’m going to start off with a few things I missed since I last posted.

Uday Gajendar wrote an article about designing for panic. How do you design for the infrequent situation in which the user is panicked, anxious, stressed, and in a hurry? Some suggested strategies: “Panic! at the user interface.”

Andy Rutledge republished his (perhaps contentious) article that challenges the common understanding of creativity: “On Creativity.”

On a similar vein, Scott Berkun challenges the doubtful idea that “creativity” is the secret of innovation: “The secret about innovation secrets.”
