Dissatisfaction – Matt Gemmell
All the stuff we make – whether it’s a machine, or a piece of software, or something as simple as this chunk of text – doesn’t exist in isolation. Every piece of output is a symbiont, waiting for its host; one half of a partnership. There’s the thing itself, to be comprehended and consumed, and then there’s the consumer. A thing that hinders that relationship instead of facilitating it isn’t really a valid thing at all.
