Intimacy and Intelligence
avatar
I do not know whether some other people feel the same, but sometimes, when I start using a new system or a new program which has been designed well enough to be beautiful, usable, practical etc..., I feel intelligence. The kind of system with which you can think "I don't know whether this functionality exists, but if it does, I should be able to find it there, and it should work like this...", and seconds later find exactly what you had in mind (all this without ever looking at the user manual).

The feeling is that an intelligence has been there before you. Someone did think of all this and has used the power of human analysis to design and build the thing.
