    @tomskitomski also, do as I say, not as I do. It's not like I'm not guilty too. But it's my twitter account and therefore I am right.

  5. @denisewilton Yes. Yes you are. Do want examples though. Where's the edge between subtly enhancing and over the top?

  6. @tomcoates oh, it's just flippy frickin' pages on flat digital devices and pretend rolls of film in digital cameras. That kind of thing.

    @tomskitomski @benterrett to be honest, i too have been guilty of the fake paperclip and pretend sellotape. We've all done it.

  8. @tomcoates mainly it worries me that we're creating weird false memories for next generations. And we're getting lazy.

  10. @robmanuel @denisewilton They didn't have to! Everything from the seventies already has a weird retro filter on it!

  11. @tomcoates i hate floppy pages most of all. Understand need for non-threatening new devices, but contents of book ≠ bound paper.

  12. @denisewilton I don't think it's that actually. I did a bit of an inventory of page turning / pagination techniques a while back...

    @denisewilton ... I couldn't find a pattern that made more sense / was more 'native' than page turning.

  13. @robmanuel @tomcoates - yeah, that'll take some explaining. Just lie to your kids about how old they *really* are.

  14. @denisewilton Vertical scrolling was terrible for bookmarking/place finding, horizontal scrolling lost the top left visual anchor.

    @tomcoates divided in that way Just because the text fell there doesn't mean it's the end of the text/para Does need breaking up tho', agree
