The point is, that although like most good website features there are tutorials…but I go straight for it. Full steam ahead. I figure if I can’t figure it out, if it isn’t user friendly enough to work WITHOUT instructions, I am not interested.

I have created a fun, story-telling about my impending trip to Portland. It taught me to face my worries, touch the milestones, and move on… very, very helpful. And, fun.

This initial connection with media is called ‘onboarding’…. basically how DO you get your feet wet? Methodically following tutorials or diving in head-first? I guess you know my answer.

Here’s an interesting bloger describing user interface today…I’d follow her if I were you– Whitney Hess.

So, do let me know the answer to my question…. what do you think?
