Accessing websites / apps / software – at some point signing up voluntarily, uploading ‘upgrades’ – every dialogue box button saying ‘ACCEPT’. We clicked, granted permission. Never read fine print. Took them on faith – sometimes based on brand (i.e., Microsoft, Apple, SAP, Malwarebytes, ACT) – know them, trust them. Like them? Seems less important than whether we trust.
Still, most of our interfaces are not with our machines, the whole world or technology giants, are they?
Most interfaces are with faces. In groups, in rooms, street corners – restaurants or up on the roof.
Nameless faces at first, until we reach that better more direct focus.
Still there are crowds, but now just one face stands out.
One we’ll never forget – never miss them in any crowd.
