User experience trends and the problem with stealing bad ideas

Leave a comment

Harrison Weber wrote a short but interesting article about the presentation of Dan Maccarone at the State of the Startup Event.

Dan’s talk titled “User experience trends and you.” In true tough-love fashion, Maccarone covered a number of trends and ultimately explained the problem with stealing bad ideas. According to Dan, imitation is the sincerest [form] of flattery. Of course imitation happens everywhere, and on the Internet, it’s more common than not.

“Startups really aren’t thinking about what the user wants, and how to help them accomplish that goal. Focusing on that is the only thing that will actually make your users happy.”
— Dan Maccarone of Hard Candy Shell
