'Ghetto' as Design Choice
I know at least one designer for whom the insane popularity of MySpace is like an icy dagger forever twisting in his heart: How can they use it? How can they like it? IT’S SO UGLY.
So I was interested to see this (light) analysis of why MySpace works. Even better, it turns out, are the comments on the post (blogs are cool like that) — they really dig into the ins and outs of MySpace’s design, or lack thereof, and its success.
