Lord’s Law

The misuse, nay abuse, of Fitt’s law is rife on the world wide web. Upon discussion of this robsta proposed, I named and iain codified Lord’s Law.

Lords Law: all UI discussion will eventually be reduced to misapplications of Fitts Law

I chose the name on account of the fact that Chris is often wrong. Actually, no – it’s worse than that. It’s his insistence of correctness that makes his wrongness all the more frustrating, just like the Fitt’s law abusers. In support of this statement I give you exhibit A; the ongoing Windows debate, and exhibit B; BST.

Credit to iain, robsta and of course the ever affable cwiiis (even when he’s wrong he’s right)
