Usability of a door

How many times have you not been able to figure out if the door should be pushed or pulled? This does not improve with experience either! Who would have thought this was so challenging to design and implement.

With World Usability just around the corner its a good reminder that everything we touch in the modern world was designed by someone. Often things are not designed well and we all know it when we experience it. Its amazing how well tuned you can be to this stuff if you pay attention. Please use this Thursday to pay attention a bit more to your environment and its usability.
