Also, the bridge is out.

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.

Here’s Seth’s list of reasons why things are broken:

Not my job
Selfish Jerk
The world changed
I didn’t know
I’m not a fish
Broken on purpose

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