Computer expert meet computer novice

Cameron Moll on natural mapping at An Event Apart New Orleans, 2008.

Surprising how we often underestimate — and at times downright ignore — natural mapping in the virtual world. I know I was a happier man when I realised Leopard (unlike Tiger) preserved the icon positions of my external hard disks on my desktop; I don’t keep a centered dock because it keeps shifting all the icons when the number of items change, I keep it at a screen corner because that at least affords me fixed positioning for stuff like the Trash, Downloads and Applications folders.
