Good and Bad experiences

Four new signups today, made me think about the ups and downs of the (already passé) “Web 2.0” thing. Quick verdict?

  • Highrise and WordPress = goooood!
  • Joyent Connector and iProfile = baaaad!

More detailed analysis to come, but first thinking on the latter is that shiny design and big type is not enough. Both seemed overly complex, slow to respond (Joyent) and ask you to make decisions without being sure of the consequences. Then logging in confronts you with many unexplained options. Highrise and WordPress both got me signed up and doing useful work within two minutes.
