TNW: You’ve mentioned in a past talk that you see tech more as a toy and less as a tool. What are your favorite fun destinations on the web (or apps)? Steve Vranakis: Technology should be fun and not be taken too seriously. It should be both a tool and a toy. To the user a tool, to the creator a toy. What I mean is that the developer should love the designing, coding and overall production of whatever it is they’re making. They shouldn’t feel pressured to deliver a world-changing application and approach it with an element of fearlessness. To the user, it should feel as simple to use as some of the most basic tools we use in our every day lives. If it’s difficult to understand and navigate and you need to learn how to use an application you’re probably going about it the wrong way.
