Road to Nowhere

I was going to write a post about how fickle you folks are when it comes to commenting on this blog. But I figured that would sound needy, so I'll save that post with it's bar chart and stats for another day.

I hope you're not bored with budget woes, because I got a million cartoons about that. This one hasn't happened yet, but it will. When it does I'm sure I'll get in trouble in retrospect.



But what a long second it is...

That's hilarious! But, ouch! You're right. With budget cuts this is bound to happen, but people are pretty savvy and opinionated about websites. It's not just marketing people and designers who will complain once people start falling off the unfinished path. Your "fictional" cartoon should be used by management in lobbying for budget funds and against budget cuts...

I love the antique cars driving off the bridge. I can't figure out if it was intentionally choosen or if it just was a look choice.

I tell you.. I am so thankful for your comic. It's nice to know that others are going through the same absurdness.

Don't let the lack of comments bother you!

Those antique cars are the C-level support browsers your audience insists on using. Hey look, is that a 1998 Netscape? My dad had one of those...

you don't happen to have a car that can do a backwards somersault, do you?

hard not to link to this.

If so you'll be fine.

The sad thing is that this happens all too often, and rarely has anything to do with budget constraints. It's usually based more on the amount of effort and time that have to go into a redesign.

A lot of institutions think that a Web redesign consists simply of redesigning their home page and leaving everything else (information architecture, site template, etc.) the same.

"Hmm. If we make our home page look really pretty, no one will notice that the rest of the site is still the same as it was 5 years ago, right?"
