Loved the article - computer assistance sometimes makes things worse.


Some areas where computer assistance has caused big issues - alarm overload, we saw this as we moved toward computer controlled systems, you can add alert overload as well.


Then of course - there are the close urls - we all know the issues with mistyping a url and getting something completely different.  And then of course there are the software models, reporting software, etc. where you can't get the appropriate information into the system because of the one size fits all situations.

Computer-Assisted Embarrassment

Computer systems shouldn't make us feel bad. But they often do. Contextual usability methods can help discover social defects in user experience.
