Me & Jakob Nielsen

I use RackSpace.com

 


I don't have a problem with Jakob Nielsen. On the contrary, I think he's rightfully the King of Usability and should be applauded for his work and influence in the industry. 

 

So why do I feel the need to second guess him? Only Freud knows... Actually, I do know. It's easy to take cheap shots at the leader of the pack.

 

Update: I've recently found out about an unofficial Redesign Useit.com Contest. All I can say is...wow. These are amazing redo's. 

This one is my absolute favorite. It won, rightfully so.

 

The following is the history of Jakob Nielsen and myself. Boy, is this cheap and blatant self promotion on my part or what?

 

  • Early 2003 - I wrote an article for Builder.com entitled 'Is Flash More Usable Than It Was In 2000'

    The piece examines the logic and reasons behind Jakob's 2000 review of Flash and its usability. He was right, but his view 2 years later badly needed to be updated. I just did it for him!

  • Early 2004 - I wrote another piece for MarketingProfs.com focusing on Jakob's website entitled 'Being Jakob Nielsen'. Heh, I though it was clever. I got good comments from it. A few negatives too.

  • Two days after the piece ran, I got an email from Jakob Nielsen himself. Here it is:



  • I suppose that will be it until I find some other way to use his fame for my personal gain :) I love ya' Jakob. It's all in good fun.
