The importance of a doorstop

For a year, we have propped up a door to a computer lab with a relatively unsightly trashcan.

So, today, I got an email from the ever brilliant Kerry Keck, saying, Enough! And she brought in a new doorstop for the lab.  This is a tiny thing, but this morning, when I was rushing to teach a class in this room, and didn’t have to bang to make sure the trashcan was keeping the door open, wow. This is the essence of user experience. And, how easy it is to ignore that broken thing for so long, to make do, to innovate to do something else, when really, sometimes, all we need is a new doorstop. Thanks Kerry!
