Dark Patterns

I discovered Dark Patterns only today. It shines a light on tricks used by websites and apps to make you do things you didn’t mean to, like buying stuff or uploading your address book so they can market to your contacts.

There’s even a fantastic reading list if you want to delve deeper, and there’s a lot of design and UX implications to this.

Kudos to Alexander Darlington for this excellent work.
