Civitology and Shanghaiology

Had a cup of coffee with @David Feng about Civitology and Shanghaiology. David did wonderful job in taking pictures and record every metro station in Shanghai, Beijing and Tianjin.

What I learn from David during our conversation is the western popular idea of “dummy proof”. “There are many be mistakes of giving too much information, and there are mistakes of giving too little information. If we can choose, we the first mistake” David explained, and he also talked about a sample equation: “Instead of giving 3+7 to your user, give 10″.

Pursue of preciousness is reflected in the whole website of civitology, and I admire the work he and his local team did.
