As longtime Core77 readers know, our “Hell in a Handbasket” and “Yea or Nay” installments are really sibling sections.
An HIAH post is triggered when some design “innovation” blatantly reveals something terrible about our society, whereas the YON posts are where I can’t decide whether it’s dumb design or something people will actually find useful. And getting to read thoughtful Core77 reader feedback on the YON posts in particular is one of the pleasures of writing for this site. More often than not, a YON commenter will bring up something I hadn’t thought of, so thanks for that.
Anyways, here’s what made the cut for 2018. (If you’ve got more to add on each topic, we’ll be reading.)
