Pretty much everyone I know worships at the altar of Jakob Nielsen, but his website isn't anything that would stir the loins of someone wanting shining examples of how-to-do-it and willing to sign the checks for it.

It's okay on a lot of levels for me. Neither Bob Dylan nor Willie Nelson can sing worth a damn. They're both fine songwriters, though, and both excellent performers and good people in their own right. They just can't sing. UseIt.com is a fine site for what it is and does and says. It just doesn't sing the way Zeldman's or Meyer's or some of others' do.

I had one of those bosses that looked at the site and figured it was something his secretary could do in an afternoon, and so there must not be anything there worth spending hundreds of dollars to learn. He's gone now and we're probably both happier.
