Every day–notice, space between every and day–people use software they hate using but love having. In the past, back when you were the only person you knew who couldn’t get Q&A Database to run anymore but you wanted that user experience back, it seemed like software frustration was something best kept to oneself. Now there are probably a thousand profitable websites based around nothing else. Nitpicking is one thing, but reliability is another. If I have to go one extra step in something I love to use, I will go that extra step. I do it every blog post with the exception of this blog’s. But if I can’t rely on it, if I couldn’t rely on the app to work when needed, I’d have to go to something else. To something I don’t like using, because its interface is unpleasant to me. I wonder, if nitpicking tech blogs hadn’t been the first thing online, where would the world be today? Would we all be sending each shitty haikus?
