Ernest Kim and Jason Fried

Ernest Kim and Jason Fried of 37signals ran a great panel yesterday: “Simplicity in Interface Design: A Game Show.” A lot of fun, with some good discussion at the end on icon design and designing for speed. Ernest and Jason really get it — I hope they inspire some designers to think about web sites in a new way, and finally start focusing on usability and page load time and cut the fancy graphics, roll-overs, and animations.
