    Thanks for doing the AMA Margaret! Facebook wields a lot of design influence in terms of setting UI expectations because of its sheer volume around the world. How heavily do you weigh cultural expectations when it comes to design? Not only can words translate differently across languages, but I'd imagine icons, layout and orientation matter, too.

    This looks like a copy of Slack, except everyone can edit everyone else's messages. It even has buttons on messages. And bots.

    For Information Architecture, check out Intertwingled by Peter Morville. More on the theoretical than the practical side, he takes you through the importance of how information is connected, interpreted and organized across peoples and cultures. Reminds me a bit of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig.

    I thought it was interesting that the article pointed out "Gereiatricans" were not being utilized.

    Should experts and their research in a particular field carry any merit when it comes to design?

    And Andrei accepted the PM's rejection, mostly because the PM had the hierarchical authority.

    Speaking as a PM today, and having been in the author's shoes before, I just want to point out that over the years I think "hierarchical authority" has been moving toward "do-what-it-takes-to-get-your-job-done".

    I agree, "designers should learn to code" as a statement isn't very fair. The author's point and the whole debate should actually be more like "designers should learn to code because ____". He doesn't say it explicitly (and I think he should)-- learning to code helps build empathy. And maybe one could get away with a career in "this industry" as a designer who doesn't have perfect empathy for the engineers they work with.

    But empathy, not just for the people consuming your work, but also for the people working along with you I would argue, only helps everyone.

    I'm curious - why is the Pinterest Product team not one of the best product design teams doing fantastic work?

    Looks awesome! Started with Origami and moved to Pixate. Will definitely give this a try.

    "Apple's operating system, interfaces and usability are all far superior to Google's offering."
