How long should pages be?

We write long and, since we don’t run Blogger or a back end, individual entries are not saved as individual files.

The NUblog doesn’t look like other Weblogs. Is that right or wrong? Ask Jorn Barger: “The WWW page-length debate.”

A lot of discussion of people getting confused and losing track of links. A patently ridiculous idea; if you get lost, you scroll back and re-read or scroll back and find the link. But ironically, Barger’s very long treatise, composed almost exclusively of quotes from other sources, embodies that kind of confusion.

We think the point of his elaboration is “Are long Web pages bad? Depends.” Weren’t we saying that a while ago?
