I believe that things happen for a reason – and if you are able to actually notice them, you can learn something. I also believe that when serendipity hits, it’s like being hit by a 2×4 that is urging you to PAY ATTENTION!
So today, I’m looking at my RSS feeds and see these two articles:
- Rands in Repose: A Bag of Holding
- Sara Ford: What a backpack can teach us about software design and usability
Great examples of how you can take an everyday thing or occurrence and really use it to understand something about a greater picture. The fact that they’re both talking about bags just makes it sweeter, IMO.
