Interesting links.

Let’s Be Honest

My honest opinion: Scrivs, we get it, you’re controversial. It’s a good way to get links, but use it too often and you become the designer who cried wolf and people start to tune out.

Interface design in WordPress

Matthew Thomas » Interface design in WordPress 1.2. If you think the new options are nice, wait to you see some of the other stuff mpt is bugging me to do. đŸ™‚ We’re very lucky to have this guy around. Don’t believe anyone who tells you UI is easy. Matthew spent a lot of time designing everything and it took me an order of magnitude longer than I expected to implement most of it. (The last 10% will take even longer.)
