Wait, I'm the One Here for Information

The Booth newspaper chain here in Michigan groups all their papers into a site called mlive.com.

Fine idea.

The bummer is that they continue to ask for my gender, birth date and zip code when I go to an article for the first time. It annoys me so much that I usually enter my gender as female, my zip code as somewhere in Manhattan and my birthdate as 1905. I love the idea of a meeting where management hears that a 100-year-old woman in New York City is a regular visitor to the site.

The lesson: don't put barriers between people and information.

So that's why I saw that article titled, "Top ten ways of making Kalamazoo feel like turn-of-century NYC."
