Day 4: Lillian

14th June 2002

Mark Pilgrim’s set of case studies is beginning to shape together. I’ve been following responses to it through his “Further reading on today’s posts” referral tracking tool—reception has been overwhelmingly positive, with almost universal praise for Mark’s decision to use the case study format to drive home his point. kcalder criticised Mark’s suggestion that colour blind users wouldn’t get much out of images on the web, and Mark has apologised and altered the case study accordingly. SubAverage called Mark “preachy” and posted a parody (mentioned in passing by Dave Winer). All this and we’re only on day 4.
