To people who run websites:
- If you have Flash anywhere on your site, please get rid of it. If your online catalog requires Flash, I won’t look at it.
- If I need to disable my ad blocker to see your site, I won’t bother visiting it.
- If you’re discussing music, podcasts make sense. Otherwise, I have neither the patience nor the time for them. (No, I don’t “multitask.” If I listen to a podcast while working on something else, I will both miss much of the podcast and do a poorer job on the task at hand.1)
- Similarly, unless you’re discussing a dramatic presentation, video reviews and the like are also wastes of time.
