Nach The User is drunk hier der Nachfolger mit Mutti. Leider nur mit eingeschränktem Service: „Can I pay your mom to review a porn site? Dude, no. I'll refund your money if I'm too embarrassed to show your site to her.“


My mom tutors high school students and likes quilting and hiking. She yells at her computer, doesn't know what a twitter is, and struggles to find windows she's minimized. You should design with your mother in mind. If she can't understand your site, others will struggle as well.

Ich freu mich schonmal präventiv auf The User is my Cat, The User is dumb und The User pays my Potato Salad.
