phlegm and bile

It's always interesting when a book that's intended for designers gets reviewed by nerds.

Also, I'm back from Claremont, and I have a cold. Achoo.

» Bless you.

And, of course, feel better!

» That was pretty cool to see. I think more nerds could benefit from a design book or two.

» i just started on it last night - i'm warming up on Sam Brown's copy while i await my own.

i haven't had this much fun with a design book in YEARS.

» Derek, it could have been much worse. I'd feel good about it, especially since you need some sustenance while combating your cold.

Breathe easy.

» Wait, you mean web designers aren't nerds?

I've been mislead... ;)

» a little sensitive, aren't we?

– mjj  { 11.29.01 @ 1:23pm }

» Heh. Is this your first time here, MJJ?

What's sensitive? I just said a book for designers was being reviewed by nerds. The tagline of /. is "news for nerds," so I hardly think the term is off-base.

Or was it the title that threw you? Really, any excuse to use the word "phlegm" is good with me. And "phlegm and bile" was just too good to pass up. Phlegm and bile. Mmn. Should be a band.

And, also? I'm sick. Be nice.

  Gaming the system: How moderation tools can backfire
Sometimes all the widgets backfire, encouraging the very behavior they're designed to avert. The rules have a dangerous side-effect: they create a game.
