Is it better to be first than good?

Less than one-minute read

The Boston Globe is lauded – rightfully – for being the first major responsive website.

It won Society of News Design honors. The technological step forward was what made me want to work there as a designer.

That’s why this tweet jumped out at me.

He’s right. This page is a total hot mess, and it makes me sad. Is this one of the world’s best designed sites any more?

Disclaimer I am former Globe employee and I have many good friends who still work there in the design and development departments. They are talented, hardworking folks who are not responsible for institutional decisions.
