Apps designed for smart people

f you read the same blogs I do, you may recognise where I got the title of this post from. An email from Mike Vanier that was published on Paul Graham’s website describes the difference between computer languages designed for smart programmers and “the masses”.

It recently struck me that a similar divide applies to users as well as programmers, and that programs exist to cater to both smart users and the others.

The rest of this post was lost in a database failure. I will rewrite it when I have the time.
