From building Mefeedia, I’ve learnt quite a few things.
I’ve learnt that half of the features I’ve come out with in the past year don’t matter. The other half are ok, but they are still not there.
Usability testing matters. Even if you’re an experienced usability reviewer.
Engineering matters. The site has been very slow lately.
Featuritis? I give you informationarchitecturitis! Too much thought going into IA structures. Not enough in talking to users.
Yep. I am learning. Building something real is great for that.
