Volker on bad web design

Volker has an interesting post over at his site which discusses the tendency of many Domino 'bloggers to fall prey to a number of web design gotchas. I heartily agree with his analysis (uh-oh, more weblog consensus), and also hold my hand up as someone who should take his share of the blame with regards Volker's second point: too many lines / thinking in blocks. I mean, just look at this site! Boxes all over the place!

Well Volker, most of 'em have gone in the new design! ;-)

  2. I tried leaving a comment over on Gutted Geek's site, but it didn't take (404 error). Anyway, I'll say it again here. I prefer the borders as it visually hits my brain as a unit of information I can choose to ignore or process…Thomas Duff#
