Shit Work

Zach Holman posts on his site Don’t Give Your Users Shit Work. It’s a great look at sorting and tagging and grouping that users are expected to do sometimes. I’ve often found tagging, making lists, sorting and such to be a bore. Zach puts it quite succinctly when talking about instant messaging: ‘Then I merged everyone into one big group called “Humans”.’ I did the same thing a while back and I’ve never cared about splitting things up since. I mostly have better things to do.
