Richard Jones' Log: Flash rant
We've got some Flash design guy in the office throwing around the same old ideas about how to Make The Web Better. At the moment, this involves all the usual crap: mini frames embedded in the window that can't display any reasonable amount of information, whirling-and-spinning dynamic 3-D nagivation trees that zoom and whirl and consist entirely of spheres connected by lines with no semantic information whatsoever and the user's supposed to just guess what each sphere is, and where the information they want is.
One of the onlookers remarked that people would learn to navigate the site just like they do streets. Sure, if streets had no names or visible landmarks.
