App缺的不是功能,是玩法。玩法怎么来?由限制而来!

@Puddng童鞋在一段旅途使用体验 Hipstamatic Disposable的评价:

全知全能谁都做得到,但当下,app缺的不是功能,是玩法。玩法怎么来?由限制而来,twitter的140字限制即是极好的例子。HD不可理喻地限制了摄像头的数码特性,结果模拟出了胶卷相机的「珍惜胶卷」「无法删除」「期待最终照片」等乐趣 。

[Book] Poke The Box by Seth Godin

December 19, 2011 |  by  |  Kindle Books, Linked  |  No Comments

这本书是 Seth Godin在前段时间刚刚宣布圆满结束的 Domino Project中自己出版的一本书。

Seth平日的博客都很简短,但准确到位,常令人读完回味有余。这本 Poke The Box,全书 96页。前几天我查过,因为看到标价到 $12.99,稍有犹豫。今天没想到特价 Hardcopy $5.00(62% off)Kindle版本 $4.75(63% off)。

Seth解释 Poke The Box意思说人往往习惯于安稳工作过日子,这也是过往很多公司企业成功的秘诀。为什么呢?好比在一个工厂,都希望员工可以遵守管理,只要做好分配来的工作就行。但现在不一样了,现如今这些并不能带来任何优势。

有人问,「我可以从这本书里学到什么?

Seth 回答:

Hopefully you will learn lots but do more. Start thinking about when you’ve taken initiative in a way that really meant something to you and your team, your family. When was the last time you did something for the first time? How did it feel?

There are no step-by-step how-to instructions in Poke the Box. Instead, you’ll find a series of layers, a foundation for taking a different approach to your work. Instead of learning to be more compliant, I want to push you to be the one who takes initiative.

是本值得阅读的书。

我是购买的 Kindle版本,忘了说了,如果你有 Prime服务可以免费获取 Kindle版本。
