Happy World Usability Day 2021

Still image from video. Rabbit and bear in superhero attire. The theme is written across the image.

This year's theme is Design of our Online World: Trust, Ethics and Integrity. Here's what that means:

  • You are either building trust or destroying it.
  • Trust takes years to build, seconds to break and forever to repair.
  • Ethics means doing and making things with the wellbeing of others in mind.
  • If those already privileged are benefitting at the expense of those who are overlooked and underserved, you're doing it wrong.
  • Integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is watching, or when you have to stand up to authority.
  • You also allow people to follow their own path, and support their choices.
  • Remember: A focus on trust, ethics and integrity requires hard work, lots of practice and intentful listening.
  • It's also way easier when you find your allies to share with and learn from.
  • You can still win, but when you win with trust, ethics and integrity - we all win at the same time.
