In a talk at TED2012 earlier this year, Renny Gleeson, co-founder of the Portland Incubator Experiment, explains how a 404 page is a slap in the face to the user--an unpleasant experience of having fallen through the cracks. A more thoughtful, helpful 404 page actually builds relationships. So, it is worth it to “sweat the small stuff” after all.
