Dear SEO - It is About Ego, Not Ethics
Several years ago I listened to a talk at a search engine marketing conference where the speaker insisted that whatever we were charging, triple it.
The Difference Between Usability and Yousability
Your website, software and product are mapped out but your customers don't know each other. You don't know them either. They could create something together that you never ever dreamed possible. That companies are not willing to even invest in considering this is contributing to their failure.
Examining the experience beyond the whiteboard is not tangible so it is not considered. For all the hype about being "experience" oriented, the fact is that your experience is unknown and you are out of the loop because you don't exist. You are a user. A piece of data.

Despite the popularity of Steve Krug’s famous book on web site design, “Don’t Make Me Think,” the sad truth is that most web sites have not solved this basic problem. In fact, web pages not only ask us to think, they force us to wait to get to the information in the first place.
What do we think about? We think about what the web page is about. We consider if the page meets our expectations regarding its content. For example, does it answer a question or provide the information we want? We think about where to find more information by reviewing navigation and text links. In the first few seconds, we also verify that we are in the right place and we look for signals like a familiar logo, product pictures and pictures of people. Thinking means understanding what we see and read.
The End of Civil Online Discussions
I moderated email lists in the mid-1990's when we got everything in our inbox. Moderating online discussions was about teaching the group how to talk to each other with courtesy and respect. The era of chat rooms is a fading memory but I was never treated rudely. I cut my moderating and online discussion skills in the darkest corners of the Web, when the adult industry was breaking barriers and search engine ground, and every hobby, church, organization and industry had email discussion groups.
A Matter of Perspective
I also heard, correctly or not, that the negative events happening in the world are not so bad because they provide the opportunity for us to bless the lessons we will learn. That is not how mainstream people see the world. I felt angry because while people who have reached this level of awareness can and do view events like terrorism, war, white cops killing black men and political turmoil as opportunities to send love and benevolent prayers, the majority of people I know are in the thick of depression, fear and stress, especially young people. The Light, to me, has a long way to go before I would be satisfied that it is seen and felt by the world majority.
