Web Site Pagination is Evil
Pagination is one of the worst design and usability sins on the Web, the kind of obvious no-no that should have gone out with blinky text, dancing cat animations, and autoplaying music.

Robert's Reader | Uncategorized | In Which I Take Issue With Felix Salmon
So I’d argue that, not only is the NYT page better-looking and easier to read, it also shows a respect for the reader which seems to be rooted in the hope of a long-term relationship. The HuffPo design, like the HuffPo, is all bait and switch.
