Bad design in action: the false Hawaiian ballistic missile alert ↦
Instead of selecting “DRILL - PACOM (CDW) - STATE ONLY” from what looks more like a list of headlines on The Drudge Report than a warnings & alerts menu, the operator chose “PACOM (CDW) - STATE ONLY” and sent out a real alert.
This is another display of just how critical good design and attention to detail is in the software industry. We have to do better.
