Yesterday, Robert Scoble announced the redesign of his blog. That’s awesome. My question is: if he wouldn’t have said anything, how many people would have noticed?
I go back to my thesis: No one cares about your Web site.
I care about the content and functionality that your site provides me. I experience the Web through feeds in Google Reader and widgets in NetVibes. I do 90% of my enjoying of content in those worlds. I typically don’t notice your fancy designs or user interfaces.
We’re moving away from a Web page world to a Web of data that gets aggregated together.
The Web is getting broken into pieces. If you write interesting things, I’ll grab the piece of the Web site that is your content (your RSS feed) and put it where it’s more useful to me.
What do you think? How often do you look at Web sites vs. feeds in Google Reader?
