This will likely be fixed in no time, but the irony was too much to ignore.
Jakob Nielsen released his Alertbox just a few moments ago, implying in the summary that, of all the bad design decisions a company can make, those around content are the most costly:
Bad content, bad links, bad navigation, bad category pages… which is worst for business? In these examples, bad content takes the prize for costing the company the most money.
Intrigued, I followed the link, only to find this:
So not being able to even see the content… does that fall anywhere near the “bad content” end of the spectrum?
A bit of investigation reveals that the entire Alertbox subdomain is somehow restricted in its access. Hopefully this issue isn’t too costly for him.
