From the “Let’s Jump To Conclusions” Department — with my acquisition of Zempt, and my continued use of NewsGator, I can produce and consume content without ever using a browser. I get information in Outlook via NewsGator, and I can turn it around (or create it from scratch) in Zempt. I don’t have to look at anyone else’s Web site anymore unless I choose to. I don’t even have to look at my Web site anymore.
Where does this leave Web design? And graphic design? Chris and I have discussed redesigning Gadgetopia because it’s a little bland, but if most of our traffic comes via the RSS feed, why bother? How long before we just…forget that we even have an HTML-based Web site somewhere? How long before someone consciously decides to build a Web site…without the Web site, instead having their “site” exist as nothing but an RSS feed?
