Oh, the irony

Ken Yarmosh has a great post about making the web safe for non-techies. He sends his friend Steve to Squidoo to learn about RSS and discovers that Steve has built some great lenses in no time.

The irony? Well, next to Ken’s great post was some gibberish code about an error loading the sidebar.

A lot of us are running as fast as we can to build something swifter, cooler and web2.0er than what’s out there. The web keeps getting better, and the web is always always broken.

Sometimes, it’s worth a reminder to those of us trying to build stuff that we need to clean up and smooth out the edges for the rest of us.
