Jeff Atwood on ‘User Myopia’

Jeff Atwood:

The plain fact is users will not read anything you put on the screen.

That’s a good rule of thumb to keep in mind. It’s not that you shouldn’t bother using words, or that you shouldn’t sweat the details on your UI copywriting, but simply that you should keep in mind that many users won’t read a damn one of them.
