So as I explore the world of information and innovation, I bring with it a point of view and observations of an outsider…
First observation, the news sites and blogs on tech are vomited with ads and clutter. Most popular blogs are so busy I feel like a goat that was scared and might tip over. For technology experts you would think the basic concept of streamlined efficient user interface would be common sense.
Why not have a simple layout that delivers high quality information? That is what my vision for my blog is. Do we need flashing ads? Hell no! people who are smart enough to read about technology and innovation are too smart to be lured into an ad for some crap that is flashing in the sidebar. Do you really buy a Chevy because a banner ad? Let’s start with smarts.
If your information is a Ferrari you don’t need to try and monetize the blog with a flashing idiot ad. I expect more out of the top people in the tech world. Your information has a user interface and it is the layout of your blog or site. How is clutter working for Yahoo right now vs Google…. All this innovation and not the common sense to make a site that is as intelligent as the people reading it. Think about it..
