Form follows substance

Been doing some minor tinkering with this blog's design, and I chanced upon a good web design article by Jakob Nielsen - "Mastery, Mystery, and Misery: The Ideologies of Web Design". Basically makes the point that a good interface should get the hell out of the way so that users can get to content. It made me think about the explosion of blogs: sure, in the 90s everyone used flashy Flash sites, but who ever visited them more than once? As it turned out, what was more popular was the plain text and links of blogs - content.
