Roger writes a great rant about his frustrations?in life as a web developer. I have to agree that these points are quite?real. Here is his list for excuses why people don’t always do the best they can in web development.
Visual consistency – “… please do everybody a favour and stick to the safety of your printed brochures.”
Engaging user experience – “..people who talk a lot about creating a good user experience are more often than not completely clueless about usability ”
Target audience – “This is the Web. The only thing you know about who will come is that you do not know who will come.”
Statistics – “Using the statistics defence is letting your (bad) design and/or technology choices determine who your target audience is.”
Some others are “The real world” and “It gets the job done”
