It may be amazing, but it’s quite true that millions of problems can come about from one simple problem. But rather than give an abstract explanation as is my usual custom, let’s go into a ton of examples. (Get ready for a really, really long article.)
Dilbert was a pretty lucky guy – he at least had a job to hate. Sometimes the most difficult part of looking for work – even temporary work – is getting past the choking questions at the door. It goes to show how many bigoted “human resource” people there are.
I’m sure you’re quite familiar with the typical trick web-developers use to hide content: They give you an annoying DOM element over the top of it with text something along the lines of “Subscribe” or “Join The Community”, etc.
Today I encountered a new trick… the site just up and vanished on me. What’s going on?

Yes, I mean everyone (well, okay, I’ll simplify it). The topic of copyrights is popular these days because of the ensuing mess, so I thought I’d address it. I’ve had similar posts in the past (but related specifically to software) (Part 1, Part 2), but in this article, I’d like to talk about everyone’s view.
Background for this post
I was reading recently on the kissmetrics blog about unforgettable website designs (where a couple of my links came from). If this were the only place I’d looked, obviously my statistics would be quite flawed – but it’s not – I’m just too lazy to post other links (and you might find examples in your internet adventures). Anyways, out of the 10 random sites the blogger chose, most were either for 1) content stuck right in your face or 2) ooo fancy. I looked at the sites too. I must say, some of them really are unforgettable. In fact, navigating them is so unforgettable that I intend to never visit those sites again. How’s that for a business remark.
The modern world has been plagued by the misnomer of buying. The correct term for the economic exchanges commonly occurring today is “leasing”. In short, buying does not involve attached strings.
Last time I criticized the Free Software Foundation, it was unwarranted – I hadn’t found the back-link to the page that explained what they were saying. This time, it looks like I can blame their ambiguity.
