Bluebeam, Inc. | Download Center
UX Research & Writing

Show me someone who enjoys running software updates, and I’ll show you ten people that hate it — or at least find it an annoying, but necessary thing to do.

A perfect example of how something really small can have a sizable (and sometimes not so good!) impact.
