    Wouldn't "Photoshop doesn't work for web designers" be a better title? I know he mentions "for web designers" in paragraph 1 but seems like better communication to me since there's no argument regarding any other field of design.

      I don't think photoshop was the main focus of this, seemed like he was stressing the importance of thoughtful design when creating products.

      I don't want to talk about web design or photoshop here, but about how important human-centered design is when you start a technology company. I think it's a common misunderstanding, that you only need engineers at the beginning. And also, I would like to encourage designer to not sell ourselves short by reducing our profession to creating good looking facades.
