Jakob Nielsen, usability guru, gets a bad rap for having a hard-to-use web site. Oh, and can I say it’s ugly and outdated?
Bob Sawyer wasn’t content to let the situation stand, and approached Nielsen about a redesign contest. While the contest isn’t officially endorsed by Jakob or the Nielsen Norman Group, the response was one of encouragement and mild amusement.
So the contest is on. Let’s see what you can do. The prizes are great (there are none) and the recognition is paramount (you will not receive a major label recording contract as a result, we can almost guarantee) so what are you waiting for?
