艾伦·库珀(Alan Cooper)名言

If we want users to like our software, we should design it to behave like a likeable person.

如果我们想让用户喜欢我们的软件,我们应该把它设计成一个讨人喜欢的人。

I have a cell phone that doesn't behave like a phone: It behaves like a computer that makes calls. Computers are becoming an integral part of daily life. And if people don't start designing them to be more user-friendly, then an even larger part of the population is going to be left out of even more stuff.

我有一部手机,它的行为不像电话:它的行为像一台打电话的电脑。计算机正成为日常生活中不可或缺的一部分。如果人们不开始把它们设计得更方便用户,那么更多的人就会被排除在外。

There's a fundamental problem with how the software business does things. We're asking people who are masters of hard-edged technology to design the soft, human side of software as well. As a result, they make products that are really cool - if you happen to be a software engineer.

软件企业如何做事有一个根本性的问题。我们要求那些精通硬边技术的人也设计软件的软的、人性化的一面。因此,如果你碰巧是一名软件工程师,他们生产的产品真的很酷。

艾伦·库珀

We're building what I call 'software apartheid.' We're in the process of creating a divided society: those who can use technology on one side, and those who can't on the other. And it happens to divide neatly along economic lines.

我们正在建立一个我称之为“软件种族隔离”的社会,我们正在创造一个分裂的社会:一边是那些能使用技术的人,另一边是那些不能使用技术的人。它恰好沿着经济路线整齐地划分。

艾伦·库珀

I think the phrase 'computer-literate' is an evil phrase. You don't have to be 'automobile-literate' to get along in this world. You don't have to be 'telephone-literate.' Why should you have to be 'computer-literate'?

我认为“懂电脑”这个词是个恶语。在这个世界上,你不必“精通汽车”就能相处。你不必“通晓电话”,为什么一定要“通晓电脑”?

艾伦·库珀

Design is not so much a design issue as a power struggle.

与其说设计是一个设计问题,不如说是一场权力斗争。

艾伦·库珀

Reducing a product's definition to a list of features and functions ignores the real opportunity - orchestrating technological capability to serve human needs and goals.

把一个产品的定义简化为一系列的特性和功能忽略了真正的机会——协调技术能力来满足人类的需求和目标。

艾伦·库珀

The payoff of a customer-centric approach to software and digital product design is substantial and long-lasting for both companies and their customers.

以客户为中心的软件和数字产品设计方法的回报对公司及其客户都是巨大而持久的。
