I was glad to see someone asking about his reports, though, and I have wondered about them, too. You can gain a lot from his Alert boxes at www.useit.com His last Alert box about the Web seeming to be constructed by ants on LSD was funny. He seems to be tired of narcissistic designers who care nothing about efficiency based on complying with certain web norms, or user expectations. If you or your company is heavily into newsletter marketing, I would vote to purchase the report. I'm sure you'll get results that will more than pay for the report itself. I'm old fashioned and so anti-inbox clutter, I send my newsletters to clients via land mail, not email!
