The Day Alertbox Died

The Day Alertbox Died (via mpt), a short survey of long past and recent editions of Jakob Nielsen’s Alertbox column on usability, which concludes that it has increasingly become populated by puff pieces for the Nielsen Norman Group, Jakob’s company. Certainly I’ve thought this, which is why I’ve stopped reading, although I hadn’t actually realised that that’s why I stopped reading; in the survey, Chris McEvoy notes that one third of the links from the Alertbox are NN Group links. Jakob even manages to get a link to a non-free report into the latest interview for Digital Web. ——-
