Admittedly, when the topic of Net Neutrality first showed up, I ignored it because it sounded too complicated and I didn’t think it had much to do with me. I was wrong. Too late, (though I still emailed my congressmen), I spent some time trying to learn more, and I still am. I’m trying to understand what is fair and what makes sense. The gist is that in the USA, the phone and cable companies like ATT, Comcast and VerizonRead more…

I wonder what John Lennon would have thought about the Internet. I’m thinking he and Yoko would have embraced it as another outlet to share their intimate views on the world. They were risk takers and I think they would have utilized the freedom of the Internet to get across their messages on peace, unity and humane living. It’s been a fun ride while it’s lasted, this Internet experience. We can go wherever we want, as fast as we wantRead more…

Well written articles. I didn’t see a feed for it yet but its worth checking out if you’re interestedRead more…

Yesterday I was conducting a website evaluation for a site that contains a right side column of information intended to express the credibility of the site owner. Each section of this long column began with a few words that are underlined. However, none of them were links. As a conditioned creature of the Internet, I can’t tell you how many times I tried to click them anyway – even when I knew that none of them were going to takeRead more…

One of the nagging thoughts that’s been on my mind, especially as a result of beginning to perform blog usability reviews and comments on Blog Usability Interview with Kim Krause Berg is that I wonder how many bloggers even WANT their blogs to be usable? By that, I mean, do they want their blogs to be user (reader) centered? Do they want it to be read every day, or visited once in awhile? Do they want to write to theirRead more…
