Friction, Readability and Finishability
Phil Gyford on news sites' readability: "I’ve blogged before about my dissatisfaction with news sources and earlier in the year I realised that one of the major problems online was delivery of text-based news. There was no online news source that I could browse and read as easily as I could a print newspaper."

Four crowdsourcing lessons from the Guardian’s (spectacular) expenses-scandal experiment » Nieman Journalism Lab
“Any time that you’re trying to get people to give you stuff, to do stuff for you, the most important thing is that people know that what they’re doing is having an effect,” Willison said. “It’s kind of a fundamental tenet of social software. … If you’re not giving people the ‘I rock’ vibe, you’re not getting people to stick around.”

Mark Porter » Blog Archive » Extra from the NYT
I’ve spent my whole career trying to create usable readable editorial design. I also admire the people in the technology world (Apple, Google) that take simplicity in the UI very seriously. But the very richness and complexity that gives value to a site like ours also makes it impossible to give it the kind of clean simple design which would make it most usuable.
