I want this to be the first post in the This Is Broken category.  To understand it, see Seth Godin’s fabulous talk on things that are broken. Also available here on TED

Why are so many things broken? In a hilarious talk from the 2006 Gel conference, Seth Godin gives a tour of things poorly designed, the 7 reasons why they are that way, and how to fix them.

Contradictions
Broken on purpose

From time to time I’ll be posting  Broken things here. Got something Broken to add?
