The Irresistable Click

September 20, 2009 at 5:36 PM 2 comments

Everyone whines about procrastination. I procrastinate, too. If I’m lucky, it’ll be “productive procrastination.” A good example of that is me writing this post.

Anyways,  I have something to say to the Internet:

Please remove your doggoned ‘Related Links’!!!

In today’s world of consumer convenience, more and more video content providers such as Youtube, and as I recently discovered, CollegeHumor, have these seemingly innocent and user-friendly gizmos titled “Recommended Videos” or something that like that.

The thing is, they are good recommendations. Which means we’ll click on them, and there goes another five minutes of a life (ten for me since I have to wait for buffering). It’s like a Super-size Me smorgasbord style.

This even happens in something as useful as Wikipedia! Reading an article, we come across something don’t but want to know. And how nice, it just happens to link to its own page.  There goes the irresistible click, and within that article, chances are we’ll find yet another irresistible click. Perhaps it would be best if Wikipedia was all black text and no blue.
