developers dont think what it will "look" like, more how it will act.
hence the Dr's site... it has no visual stimulation at all, and he only seems to care about how fast it loads...
which with todays technology, is becoming less and less of an issue....sure people are still on some dial ups, but even DSL can handle a good home page over several hundred K, in just a second or two...
Cable and up...its not significant anymore...
you have to agree that most of the sites you visit these days pop up in a snap... its a past issue when we used to sit there....tapping the mouse...watching the page unfold before you very eyes... each div element and img gradually appearing...
design can be implemented just as development is these days.. just know your role sucka..!
In fact I do already know about it and I find it difficult to find anything on it and it is not a pleasant experience. Whatever he preaches I believe that aesthetics are important.
I hope Jakob is reading this
As for WebmasterWorld, I say leave the logo alone. And this site doesn't need a huge redesign; just some loving touches to make it less boxy, fix margin alignments and gutters, composition, typography, and liven up the drab grey palette.
Y'all could create a Greasemonkey script to customize WebmasterWorld; I would love to see what you come up with. Let's make it a contest!
I think Jacob Neilsen's website is ugly and very difficult to navigate
IMHO, navigation doesn't get more intuitive or easier to use.
you expect a certain "lookŠ" from people you are paying to help your business
Added, a hint:
See the favicon.ico and what its symbolism is? That's what it's all about. ;)
