    If you want to remember people about how the web was some time ago or how we are all complicating things or how easy it is to pass a message without complicating too much that's one story, but if you wanna talk about good design and compare it to what you just did that's a completely different story.

    If you go to a stadium and get naked you can get the same attention that you did here and people will forget about it, like they will forget about what you just did.

    You and Jason fried suffer from the same problem, strong statements, some good old truths in the middle, then generalize and use the word "aesthetics" and "design" just to provoke people.

    I'm not saying I didn't liked your page, I did, there is some good stuff there. But that doesn't give you the right to come here and use one truth to glue another one that looks like a true when it isn't.

    What you did has nothing to do with design.

      "What you did has nothing to do with design."

      Explain.

      I'd argue that this page is designed.

        What you did was to provoke people and make them remember about the old good times of the web. I'm not going to discuss semantics with you and please stop using the word design!!!

          You did a good job tho, I don't want to depreciate it in any way, just don't use the words good design there. If you use it, you are misleading people.

        Being provocative is one thing, good design is another. Don't mix both just because you selling books by using provocative words and then saying it works and then saying it's good design, too much assumptions... You would pass by in a non design community, here, however, that would never happen.
