Making pagination meaningful

“Working with long lists of information over a network, like web email, can be problematic. Very long lists can have a huge performance hit on your servers, leaving the user tapping her fingers waiting on slow page loads, especially on ‘very thin’ clients like mobile devices. To limit the server hit and increase response times, some systems paginate data, that is, break it up into a series of pages.” (Chris Noessel – Cooper Journal)
