A Personal Electronic Notebook, by Thomas Erickson
A general design problem is discovering how to make something useful, as opposed to just usable.

What I really wanted (and soon switched to) was an outliner into which I could copy my quotations, and where I could interleave them with notes and writing fragments. In general, I do not use Proteus to author structured documents.

What I really wanted (and soon switched to) was an outliner into which I could copy my quotations, and where I could interleave them with notes and writing fragments. In general, I do not use Proteus to author structured documents.

How general is this tradeoff between simplicity and usability on the one hand, and specialization and complexity on the other? Will technologies like OpenDoc, which promise to support customization, manifest this trend? Or, less generally, suppose that three years ago I had been magically given Proteus as it is structured today: would I have found it either usable or useful? I suspect the answer is no. My guess is that my work practices had to gradually evolve in consonance with the structure and function of Proteus. That is, rather than this being a process of me gradually customizing Proteus to my needs, it feels more like a process of co-evolution in which the electronic notebook and my work practices have mutually conditioned one another.

Common beliefs about designing products for users-that designers’ intuitions aren’t to be trusted, that designers are poor at predicting how a technology will be used, that iteration is an inherent part of design, that features will be used in unanticipated ways, that users are poor at articulating what they really need-carry over even to the case where the designer and the user are one.
