Someone at Google needs to be fired today [Jun. 10th, 2010|10:15 am]
Douglas Spencer
Amongst my specialties are such diverse elements as advising companies on the usability and accessibility of their websites, and explaining to them how making changes to their website which lead to the website being less usable and less accessible is really really stupid.

Today, Google is being really really stupid.

Changes which destroy usability and accessibility need to have a usable and accessible opt-out which is easy, which is quick, and which actually works.

Google, today you fail.

I pretty much agree with Hawkida here, but want to stress another point.

The culture at Google is one of "just go ahead and try it". Being able to try something and having the right to make mistakes is vital. If we all held back because of fear of making a mistake then there would be no progress at all.

(But yeah, that image is pretty annoying)
