I must admit, I would be useless at website design, I like a bit of functionality on the web. I don't like "over-designed" websites, with all types of widgets & gadgets and whatnot.
But there are some people who put their heart, soul and I would say too many hours into creating really complicated things for the internet.
Again, it must just be that I am a bit old fashioned but I want web pages to load up quickly, for them to give me the information that I want, and then for me to go somewhere else. To find out some more.
But I suppose the kidz these days seem to enjoy it. I myself wouldn't be bothered if we wnt back to the days of Geocities.
