From the tools we'll use, to our process, to the behaviors that will change the way we design — here's a list of what to expect for User Experience (UX) Design in the next year.
«reshape the reality aroun»

How to structure information for understanding and impact
«One of the things that can cause confusion is when pieces of information that actually are from multiple levels are presented as if they belong to a specific level. There were several times in the past when my colleagues and I would spend a long time discussing a specific topic, with each person striving to prove a point, only to realize that we have been talking about the same approach, only that we’re tackling the topic from multiple levels. This refers to Richard Saul Wurman’s Hierarchy principle in his book Information Anxiety.»
How does Refind curate?
It’s a mix of human and algorithmic curation, following a number of steps:
- We monitor 10k+ sources and 1k+ thought leaders on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
- In addition, our users save links from around the web using our Save buttons and our extensions.
- Our algorithm processes 100k+ new links every day and uses external signals to find the most relevant ones, focusing on timeless pieces.
- Our community of active users gets the most relevant links every day, tailored to their interests. They provide feedback via implicit and explicit signals: open, read, listen, share, mark as read, read later, «More/less like this», etc.
- Our algorithm uses these internal signals to refine the selection.
- In addition, we have expert curators who manually curate niche topics.
The result: lists of the best and most useful articles on hundreds of topics.
How does Refind detect «timeless» pieces?
We focus on pieces with long shelf-lives—not news. We determine «timelessness» via a number of metrics, for example, the consumption pattern of links over time.
