ABSTRACT:
This talk is based on the presenter's new book:  Web Bloopers:  60
Common Web Design Mistakes and How to Avoid Them (Morgan Kaufmann).
The book explains how to avoid common Web design errors, illustrated
with examples from actual websites.  The talk asserts that the Web is
not
commercial product quality, largely due to poor usability.  It
describes a few bloopers in each category, and explains how to avoid
them. The talk is illustrated with many examples of bloopers in
publically-available websites.  Details on book:
