404: When failure can be fun
Posted May 23, 2012on:
Here is the blurb of this short TED talk on YouTube:
Oops! Nobody wants to see the 404: Page Not Found. But as Renny Gleeson shows us, while he runs through a slideshow of creative and funny 404 pages, every error is really a chance to build a better relationship.
Though not as bad as the Windows blue screen of death (BSOD), getting a 404 error message page while surfing the Web can be a bummer. It means that someone failed somewhere at something.
But that does not mean that you cannot have fun with the page and even help the person who stumbles upon it to learn something about you, your organization, or even what you stand for.
Failure is an option. It is also an opportunity. After all, when you fail is it is just the First Attempt In Learning.
