I’ve gone right off my job. I don’t really know why, I’m just finding every day to be a real bore. I’m not interested any more. Web pages are boring as the Biography Channel (the website for which is rather more interesting than their programming). I’m in a constant state of trade-off – if not between coherent information management, and “he who shouts loudest gets links on the home page”, then it’s unrealistic and unnecessary accessibility demands (14 point fixed lettering?! I ask you! Fourteen point is this big!) versus “why is our design so crap, we should have a site like…”. And, as all middle-men have found before me, I don’t get praised for my capacity to manage the tension, I get hated by everyone for not bowing to their ill-informed, badly thought through opinions.
If I wasn’t doing this, though, what would I do instead?
