The reason you get links to Scripting News articles instead of the full text is that they're on a different site in my CMS. Sorry about that. My sites are always the bleeding edge, the place where I experiment the most. So it's always all just barely working. Be glad you get the links! :-0#

It's even worse than it appears.#

There's a lot of cynicism in tech. I'm a believer. I know users are supposed to be lazy and not care about freedom. But I think enough of them do to make a market.#

Products have to be easy. But they don't have to be effortless. We use lots of products that require effort, some specifically because they require effort. My bike for example, which is one of the best purchases I've ever made. If you get a dog, you're going to buy lots of stuff that requires effort (ask Chris Voss). Effort isn't the issue.#

I think people care. You see evidence of it everywhere every day. But they have to be excited! And that's cool. I want to be excited too.#

Now a song to sing along with!#
