Apr 12, 2011: The new Redesign Must Die talk

Another day, another bloody presentation. I use the term "bloody" because I'm in the UK for #UXLondon at the moment, which instantly makes me an honorary Englishman. I can eat fry for breakfast, duck into a subway without paying a fare, and, of course, talk about bloody this and bloody that.


This presentation is an updated version of my old Redesign Must Die talk, given a few years back. I think that the only slide to survive this redesi... (cough) new version is the infamous one featuring the kittens. If you care nothing for redesign and only for kittens, jump ahead to slide #5. Otherwise, prepare to witness my wrath:

If you want to be a real English person you have to say "fry-up" instead of "fry" and "tube" instead of "sub-way"! I wouldn't recommend trying to trick the ticket barriers either, those things are rather vicious pieces of work should you end up on the wrong side of them - like plastic jaws of death really. You got the bloody bit nailed though!

Great talk today too - one of my favourites of the day.

Amanda, for shame, for shame: even I know that a subway in London is a tunneled walkway under a street, as opposed to what we New Yorkers call a subway. (My daughter and I discovered that when we were here last year and were looking for differences between British and American English.) But thanks for the fried meats edification.

More importantly, thanks for the incredible sketches. I've seen what you've done before and was blown away; to be the subject of your work is an incredible thrill. You've made my day; thanks!

(Amanda's amazing sketches from the first day here at UX London are all here: http://www.yahnyinlondon.com/post/4589854263/ux-london-sketchnotes-day-1 )

I learnt all this the hard way when I moved to London from Australia! Oz is somewhere between the US and UK for language. It's actually quite a fascinating subject really!

Glad you liked the sketchnotes, all the lovely comments has been wonderful :) Let me know if you'd like a bigger digital copy for your records.

Hope you had a great trip to the UK!

I'd love that Amanda; thanks! Had a wonderful time here at the conference and in London; sorry we didn't get to cross paths though! Maybe some other time?
