For many years my mission was to “create a better way to use computers“. Then, one day – while talking to a charming Chinese student – it dawned on me, that it is not computers. It is people. It is people smiling. It can be an inner smile or an outer smile, or just a little “ha” moment, but it is people I do care about.

People, like you and me, access pictures, sounds, all kinds of bits and pieces that has relevance. This is digital data and thus I would speak about Human-Data instead of Human-Computer interaction. Computers are only tools to help us – or distract us from – reaching our bits that form photos, documents, computer games and more. Computers however started to dominate us, stealing our most valuable asset: time. This is not OK. This has to change.

So now, let’s have people interact with data and smile in the meantime. Make one billion people smile. That is my mission.
