Being somewhat disturbed by the amount of time I spend daily catching up with my news feeds, I have unsubscribed from boingboing_net. It was my favourite tech culture blog, but it was also feed of the greatest volume.
Hopefully this means lesser time staring at a screen.
People get busier. Fields of interest widen, attentions lower. And then people whine the environment (in multiple senses of the term) isn’t as good as it used to be in the old days. Well designed environments ought to make for lesser stickiness from users, not more. The user’s visits are going to get briefer and briefer, but they’ll continue to expect a sense of completing the visit each time.
