Why are academics' websites so poorly designed? In fact, they go beyond bad design and border on unuseable.
Taleb's disasterous fooledbyrandomness.com epitomizes the phenomenon. One of the images is actually displayed upside down! Andrew has pointed out that my marquee example was not to be, but do not be distracted by the beautiful celebrities: Taleb's site belongs on Geocities circa 1998!
Do they really not know there are people (say, these fine folks) who can help fix this problem?
