Chris Heathcote: anti-mega: friends with benefits
"The web is about sharing ... and people will share with the tools they’re given. If username and password are front and centre, then they’re the tools people will use. There’s so much usability dogma about reducing the sign-up process and throwing people into use that important details – such as explaining what all the cogs and levers do – are forgotten, or assumed as knowledge." This is excellent, and all true, and I do not know how to solve this. But Chris' comments - that this is not stupid, this is how people are - are all spot on.
