Shapes of the World

A collection of the cartograms representing the true shapes of the world, as well as fancy graphics and photos that could help shape our view on the world and visions about the future of the world. A picture is worth a thousand words, so further explanation is not necessary, just enjoy 😀

“Restful User Experience”

It all started the other day when I was trying to explain the difference between RPC & REST to colleagues. I used “dumb phone” vs. iPhone to illustrate my points, which was well received. Then with more ideas popping into my head, I decided to visualize them all and share with others.

Some statements in the slides are arguable, e.g., I love the Pianist application, truly. But I just couldn’t imagine typing on the screen all day 🙂 Anyway I deem the content should be very helpful for better understanding of REST as well as UX by changing perspectives.

BTW: I am an iPhone lover, but not iPhone user, yet. So some observations about iPhone might not be 100% correct. And I hope to touch deep into iPhone OS developer experience soon.
