Has the world become too visual? That was the question posed by Will Self recently in the Point of View slot on BBC Radio 4. He argues that we have a world that is now too image-rich and puts the case that he now considers himself to be “post-image”.

In defence of buckets
Scouring through UX blogs on the topic of menus, IA, or navigation you will find the theme of buckets.
A ‘bucket’ is defined as a menu item into which almost anything could fit – they are typically labelled with vague words like ‘Miscellaneous’, ‘Information’, ‘Other’ or ‘Stuff’. These have effectively been crucified as “the ONE thing you must never do”. So at the risk of being virtually crucified, I am here to defend them.
