Jakob Nielsen made me do it

joyIs this autumnal image bringing you joy? Am I connecting with your life and physical environment? No, I didn't think so.

Crack Smoker

Jacob has been hitting the pipe hard lately. Must be able to get high with all that Macromedia money.

the holiday season is the low season

Geez, is this what the usability profession has gotten reduced too? Reccommending that sites tastefully add seasonal decoration? Is this the kind of expert opinion that matters? Even to "us" who generally care what Jakob has to say? I don't care what CHI-WEB demands, this is the kind of pointless research that makes Usability look stupid.

I couldn't believe

I couldn't believe this was a serious Alertbox. Certainly is a low. Samantha's comments on SIGIA are on the money. I was just wondering, "what's the point of this stupid alertbox?"

Ever'body's getting into the act...

HA HA HA

Next month I'll change that to HO HO HO.

And if you order before midnight...

you can get the 64-page report on this inane topic for only $38. Maybe it comes with animated turkey gifs.

Yeeouch…

So Jakob does one alertbox column with the admission that him is actually human, and likes pretty seasonal pictures. Big whoop. It's not like he charged you for reading the column, right? I think a lot of people dislike JN sooo much that they'll look for any little thing they can attack him with. Aye carumba.

That's the price

That's the price I think you pay for being a guru. You sit on the mountain top and get pelted with little pebbles by all the little people looking to unseat you. Or something like that. ;)
