Spreading the Word
With all these things going on in the sport, it’s a pleasant surprise to hear that cycling has a new ambassador, Charo. I was in the dinner table yesterday, and she was telling me how she explained the mechanics of a stage race to one of her friends at work, Ada, who just finished reading Lance’s first book, It’s Not About the Bike.” Aawwwww.
Also on speading the word, I feel Blogger’s in-house comment box isn’t as effective as its third-party counterparts. Admittedly, it’s better security for the blog owner, but a potential commenter(?) would lose his interest once he finds out he has to login with his Blogger account (or sign-up if he doesn’t have one). In my experience, commenting on blogs is a spur of the moment kind of thing. Again, a usability issue for Jakob Nielsen fans.
