As if Kenny and I did not have enough blogs already, we have recently launched yet another, inspired by some frustrating experiences that we’ve had as software developers – and consumers – during our sabbatical. aims to humiliate software developers and designers everywhere into creating better error messages and fallback experiences when something goes wrong. We have posted a few stories already, and are eager to include reader contributions, as we imagine there may be a few other software users out there who have banged their heads against the wall in frustration upon encountering unhelpful error messages before. Maybe.

One thought on “”

  1. wow! i’ve had the idea of an error message version of signspotting for years – and as late as this past summer, i started working on building it. but before i started, i checked that the domain was available, and that no one had already given the concept life. a 404 on “” and no google hits for “errorspotting” encouraged me to get started. i never finished, of course…

    but now you have! =) saves work for me (and since I probably never would have finished anyway, i’m really glad you did!) i have a couple of contributions to the list of error messages. where should I send them?
