Surviving the Adolescent Internet

We looked back the other day at a 2001 white paper, Surviving the Adolescent Internet. And not to sound like Jakob Neilsen reviewing specs from a 1980’s Air Force usability manual, but our paper holds up ok. We’d likely make it even more thorough now, but as a basic review of the key differences - and their implications - between repeat and new users, it’s solid. About the only problem with it is that it was titled “Part 1.” And there’s yet to be a sequel. Still, there’s always time. There’s no doubt the internet is still in its adolescence.
