I also live with the Inter­net seduc­tive­ly easy helps me re­memb­er stuff that I – all things con­sidered – would be better of by putting a little effort in try­ing to remem­ber with­out addi­tioshy;nal life lines. But that’s a com­plete­ly diffe­rent dis­cus­sion. Irri­tat­ing is also code language or other­wise in­com­pre­hens­ible speak or com­pe­tences that a web site wrongly assumes I have. Simply bad commu­ni­cat­ion, and that also apply AFK. Steve Krug hit the usabi­lity bull’s eye in 2000 with the book “Don’t Make Me Think” and created with that title a ten­able tag­line for usabi­lity on the web. Which still makes sence, since every time I stop and think “Ehrm, what does that mean” there’s a risk that I don’t com­plete what I came for. That said, I actual­ly don’t mind that web sites make me think, not only about the content, but also about the world or just how the current web site is put to­gether. I like to chal­lenge the convent­ional think­ing – not all should be be construct­ed the same way or by using the same method. I can live with a web site with a ‘chal­leng­ing’ sense of usabi­lity. But there has to be some kind of meening, a logic, that is within reach through a little think­ing or trying. Maybe some­thing smart could be revealed. Other­wise I could easily end up feel­ing stupid, and that is the really annoy­ing.

Today magazines are consid­ered as if they should be pro­duc­ed on paper. Of course using the digi­tal possibi­lities as video, sound, anima­tions and so forth, but the maga­zine is still designed in a fixed format, as pages for a certain screen size. Further­more the maga­zines are being devel­oped into closed file formats and distri­buted in proprie­tary

distri­bution systems. While web sites today are creat­ed to fit to diffe­rent devices and screen sizes, we don’t see the same tendency with maga­zines. The inten­tion here is there­fore to create maga­zine designs that are not fixed, but appear as kinds of design: The maga­zine must adapt to reader’s screen, not by simply scaling, but by an intelligent

(and partly automated) restruc­tur­ing of the content, which support the sense of tra­di­tional qua­lities of the maga­zine as it is in the hand of the reader. The maga­zine must to be in a format that doesn’t require a perpe­tual zoom­ing and pan­ning, that basic­ally should be un­neces­sary.

Exploit­ing the browser based Inter­net provid­es the basis for easily pub­lish­ing a maga­zine, that is not de­end­ing on a costly pub­lish­ing appa­ra­tus and with­out the risk of run­ning into the various kinds of censor­ship, that we have seen hap­pen­ing with apps.
