It seems that Google Analytics has launched some new features including – hoorah! – the ability for people NOT in the US to see their stats in local time. Very nice, thanks for that Google. BUT! every since then I’m finding my poor old blog is taking AAAAGGGGEEESSSS to load, while it waits, and waits and waits for Google Analytics. Not sure about you, but that’s probably the number one reason for getting rid of stats code. In fact, that’s almost enough to make me stop dreaming of Measure Map.
Come on Google. Pull your finger out already. Let my blog load quickly again!
do you read OK/Cancel yet? I love how they can say things that I’ve been thinking and could rant about for post after post, using humour and a 3 frame cartoon.
I *love* their most recent cartoon. It illustrates beautifully the problem that we who work in design (be it visual, experience, information, interaction) have to deal with all the time. The fact that *everyone* thinks that their ‘opinion’ counts.
