At the end of 2005, Nicholas Felton decided to publish a report that would chronicle his life over the previous year. He looked through his music archives to see how many songs he had listened to. He checked his airline ticket stubs to see how many miles he had flown. He aggregated the number of books read and photos taken. He compiled those and myriad other data points into his first annual report about his life, aptly titled, “The Feltron Annual Report.” (The “r” in “Feltron” was added to include a subtle pseudonym component to the report.)An Annual Report on One Man’s Life - Bits Blog - NYTimes.com
The panorama sequence appears to be an interface for an interface, a distancing from the core activities of users, who just want to get on with what they want to do. My view is to let the user’s eyes do more on a screen-image rich with opportunities rather than having to move through a sequence of thin decorative screens in order to find the desired action. The way to reduce clutter is not to thin down and sprawl out the content; instead fix the design. Clutter and confusion are not attributes of information, they are failures of design.Edward Tufte on Windows Phone 7
