Comments: Ugh

Like "Architecture," moving away from living spaces to become a kind of performance art, I think the web is starting to be dominated by "Designers" instead of by people who care about users, and by marketers who want you to be distracted rather than informed.

Precisely.

If we work hard enough, we can eventually make the internet a complete impediment to communication. (A not-at-all gratuitous Calvin & Hobbes paraphrase.)

Bah.

P.S. Also, like "designers" in the clothing industry, whose demand for curve-free models with bodies that don't "interfere" with their "art" have not only spawned two generations of dangerously anorexic models but created an entire "clothing industry" that has nothing to do with what women actually wear.
