Tesco Checkout Girl Test (TCGT)

TAGS: None

Julian at Camera anguish confirms that blogging comes of age:

There is a golden thermometer that I and others use for technology
known generally as the Tesco Checkout Girl Test (TCGT). This is the
test of what happens when someone, with often limited ability, has to
use technology in order to carry out their job tasks, such as credit
card checkers, changing till rolls, rebooting an electric till etc. It
comes as a shock to me then to have been standing in a queue in my
local Tesco tonight and hear two checkout girls discussing the optimal
ways to ensure comment moderation in their blogs and discussing the
merits of Blogger versus MySpace, Facebook or TagWorld. In fact when it
came to my turn to be served I went and stood in another queue and left
them to it so I could listen some more.
