A Better BSNL

Over a year ago, at a conference, we were trying to make a point about the sorry state of the Indian government’s web presence.

To show the possibilities, we re-designed the BSNL website homepage to show clarity in communication, navigation and basic usability. I dug up the shot to share it here and BSNLs website still is unchanged.

I hate it when people call themselves ‘entrepreneurs’ when what they’re really trying to do is launch a startup, so they can cash in and move on. They’re unwilling to do the work it takes to build a real company, which is the hardest work in business.

Good interface design is as transparent as possible, because I don’t want to have to think about it. I just want to write, or do whatever else I’m doing, and not have to think about whatever I’m doing it on.

“Leadership qualities are not the qualities that enable people to attract followers, but those that enable them to do without them. They include, at the very least, courage, endurance, patience, humor, flexibility, resourcefulness, determination, a keen sense of reality, and the ability to keep a cool and clear head even when things are going badly. This is the opposite of the “charisma” that we hear so much about.

Every monster has a big shadow. That’s what makes it a monster. In fact, when you look the monster in the eye, when you calmly and carefully inspect the actual monster, you discover that he’s not so bad after all. It’s just the shadow that’s scary. When in doubt, ignore the shadow.

Most companies would love to have rabid fanatic customers like Apple, Harley, or Starbucks, but don’t realize how expensive those customers are. They generate more customer service calls. They demand more features. Their expectations are sky-high… and they don’t hesitate to spread the word if you let them down.
