Lightroom Journal: Personality as a Conscious Part of Software Design

Mark Hamburg, Adobe software architect and project lead for Lightroom:

All products have a personality of one sort or another. That personality is at the heart of how the product works, what it feels like to use, etc. Sometimes that personality is relatively muted and/or buried behind other conventions. Sometimes it is directly in one’s face. Very often it is something that happens more or less by accident, but that accidental nature doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist.
