Look at this screen shot from the below linked ZDNet page. Two things strike me as wrong with it, but one of them is probably trivial.
First, the trivial – the title, “1999 Resources for dan farber” read to me as if it said, “Resources for Dan Farber from 1999”. I read 1999 as a year, not as a total.
Easy to fix: “1,999 Resources for dan farber”. The comma make it read differently.
OK, done with the trivial. Now the thing that makes me scratch my head.
I was interested enough in Dan Farber to see all of the content he has created for ZDNet – don’t you think I might also be interested in subscribing to a feed of this list of content? Wouldn’t that be an obvious thing to do on this page?
If they has a big orange RSS logo on this page I would have subscribed. Maybe now that Dan is a big-wig at ZDNet he can change this.
It should be easy for people to “eat” your information.
