From credit card security to sidewalk design, if you are creating something, you have to account for the patterns of the end user. Even the most well thought out, centrally planned, efficient and scientific plans will always fail if they ignore the patterns and tendencies of the end users.

On this week’s Forward Tilt, Isaac explores some examples where human behavior can override planning and how to apply this lesson to life and entrepreneurship.

In this episode: 

  • Do credit card chips actually improve security?

  • Metric vs. Imperial measurement 
  • College campus sidewalks
  • Emergent design
