Blog by Sumana Harihareswara, Changeset founder
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2005 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Salon just redesigned its main page. I am basically dismissing out of hand any complaints from the first 24 hours, unless they come from someone whose judgment I trust, because web users are curmudgeonly and before they get used to a redesign they hate it.
But! Two little things cheered me up recently.
