Down with Nielsen

Justin Hankins

(who has a nice new redesign running on castro) wrote this about Jakob Nielsen:

    "… Jakob Nielsen builds his entire persona as one of supremacy and omnipotent knowledge. Something I hate. Something I would like to see humbled. "

I definitly agree with a lot of Nielsen’s ideas, it’s just his “if you don’t do it my way, your site is shit” attitude that pisses me off. Rules are meant to be broken, but you can’t break them until you know them. And somehow, maybe it’s just me, but are users really THAT stupid that they can’t figure out a simple navigation scheme?

    this play must be read at least twice in order to geta real sense of whats going on.Ibsen created a tilsemes work of art when he wrote Hedda Gabler.Here we have a simple plot,A woman who feels that she is trapped in a loveless marriage,discovers that her old love is back in town. To make things more complicated for Hedda, this old lover is a rival of her husband.To add insult to injury,her old lover is being helped by the woman she hates.But I wouldn't fell too sorry for our Hedda, from the very opening of the play we get a chance to see who Hedda really is.In this scene we see George Tessman, Hedda's husband admiring the new bonnet of his aunt Miss Juliana Tessman,who has just placed it on a chair.Hedda enters.Hedda- Tessman, this servant will never do.Miss Tessman- Berta will never do ?Tessman- Whatever put that in your head, dear?Hedda- Look at that! She has left her old hat lying around on a chair.Tessman- Why, Hedda Hedda- Suppose anyone had come in and had seen it!Tessman- But Hedda! That bonnet's Aunt Julia'sHedda- It is ?Miss Tessman(picking up the hat) Yes, indeed. And what's more,it;s not old.Hedda knew that the hat belonged to Miss Tessman,and that it wasn't old.This is where the reader get a sense of what Hedda is about.We see the woman full of jealousy,needing always to be the center of attention.
