    Messari Podcast #14: The unintended consequences of product design with Taylor Monahan

    Messari Podcast #14: The unintended consequences of product design with Taylor Monahan

    Product design is hard. For this week's episode, Taylor’s highlights the sometimes vast difference between intentions and outcome in product design v. user experience. For example, the intention of making the user onboarding process easier can become so streamlined that it ceases to require users to save their private keys. Another example Taylor gives is the practice of saving private keys, or other secret information, to local storage in exchange for intended causes like ease to access, faster signup, account recovery options, etc.

    Ending the episode with wise words from Arianna Simpson, who reminds us that price is not all that matters.
