Site categories

June 6, 2008
  • Categories reinforce the relationship between information p.40
  • Categorisation might conflict with different interests
  • “Most categorisation moves from general to specific.” p.38; “Organizing information from general to specific also carries the benefit of progressive disclosure.” p.39; “progressing disclosure provides you with the portion of information you want when you’re ready for it.”

From: Wroblewski, Luke (2002), Site-Seeing: A Visual Approach to Web-Usability, New York: Hungry Minds
