Income redistribution?
Comment by Mike Adams on January 31, 2008 at 5:05pm
I understand exactly what he's talking about. So do comedians. One of them said that it was a terrible thing to go to a Starbucks because it required him to make 24 decisions first thing in the morning before he'd had his coffee!

My todo list is well populated; so do I start on that report, make those changes to those static pages, work on that Ajax doohicky, analyze some pages for SEO, work through a tutorial on new software, or watch a vblog on podcasting?

I think I just depressed myself!

That's hilarious. Great article!

Stephanie,
Funny you mention that, I blogged about home page clutter last week and used the video in my post to support my argument. (Before I'd seen this forum.) http://blog.case.edu/webdev/2008/01/16/homepage

Good point. Clutter is a contender for the #1 challenge for a higher ed site.
Comment by Stephanie Leary on January 3, 2008 at 5:40pm
I'm with you, Brian, but I think the video is a persuasive argument against (for example) home pages cluttered with too many links, and it could be something to show pointy-haired bosses who want every department to be represented.

Am I the only one who finds this argument belabored and weak and kinda wah wah wah?

On the other hand, uwebd, a historically mild-mannered, angst free listserv, is suddenly uncharacteristically grumpy lately... WHY - we technophiles have been confronted with a batch of cool choices like Ning. So there is something to this argument.

There is an explosion of depression in modern society?, I'd love to see the statistics of people in the Middle Ages that this guy is comparing todays people with.

I'm torn. This kind of thing drips of shiny new fad modern theory of the month - schlocky, wuss and sterotyping - World is Flat, etc... On the other hand, there's a lot of thoughtful points on the new challenge of choice which derserves to be considered and has kinda hit home with uwebd.

I'm a technophile, choice is great. There are some negative consequences, but I like omlets and egg shells can be composted.

Thanks for posting Mark!

How many people have read The Paradox of Choice? It's an excellent read. I am definitely a "maximizer". I've been trying to figure out what digital picture frame to get my father for Christmas and their are just too many choices :(
