A couple recent write-ups make me think we should all be trying harder. Stories Medium Podio Shopify (added June 21, 2016) U.S. Digital…

QR Codes Work, Just Not in the U.S.

You could say I am a bit of a fan of the potential of the lowly QR code. Mostly because the idea has merit, even though the implementations are generally terrible. I qualify that statement by limiting it to the United States. Outside of the U.S. they enjoy greater appeal…

Obligatory Redesign Post

Screen shots showing four of the states of the menu of which I am so proud but which has questionable usability, as opposed to the h1 style, which is unquestionably unusable. Note that one of those screen shots is really a view of the printed page, where the menu is…

For Infinite Scroll, Bounce Rate Is a Vanity Stat

Animation showing me scrolling an article at the Fortune site. The yellow arrow indicates when the URL changes. At that point leaving the site will not count as a bounce. About a year ago I wrote a post with a checklist of items I feel you would need to satisfy…

On the Mis-Named Mobilegeddon

If you are a web pro then it is likely that you heard that Google’s search results were going to change based on how mobile-friendly a site is (you probably heard a couple months ago even). This change took effect yesterday. As with almost all things in the tech world…

Alt Text Bot Image Descriptions FTW

This weekend I saw a tweet in Marcy Sutton’s timeline that appeared to be an image description generated by a piece of software.
