Withdrawal Symptoms

140+ is a new category for my blog that I am creating for lone thoughts and ideas that come to my head, but I never find the time to write an insightful post about them and they just don’t fit in the 140 character Twitter constraint (And I refuse to use those other apps that link to a separate site).

So, what are withdrawal symptoms? Withdrawal symptoms (normally this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Withdrawal) is the phrase I am using to describe the initial resistance people show to something new because they are used to the old equivalents (Facebook design changes come to mind, iPad launch comes to mind). Also, how to do you do useful ‘human-centered’ design when you are creating something different from what people are already used to?
