I subscribe to a number of different mailing lists related to usability/
user-centered design/ whatever you want to call it.

One of which is called "Good Experience", and is focused on highlighting
good (and bad) user experiences in software, websites, and even hard goods.

Good Experience owner, Mark Hurst, publishes an annual "Gift Guide and
Almanac" each year around Christmas time, with gift recommendations. Really
good stuff - so good, my wife is getting something off this list. ;-)

I don't want to be negative for the sake of it, but I disagreed with many of
his choices and reasoning, and I thought his gems of wisdom were
self-evident bordering on patronising. I know how to handle an umbrella,

I know he didn't force this guide on anyone, nor did you, but IMHO his guide
has little interest and even less worth.

Just my 0.02.

It's a pretty interesting concept... a guide that doesn't do much
weighing the pros and cons or evaluating needs, it just says what he
thinks you would want based on his own experience. This would be very
handy for people who are not very technically inclined. I'm an
overanalyzer, personally.

The almanac portion is amusing, too.

Thanks for the link, I enjoyed it.
