Web design and stuff

As our workgroup deals with comments on a look-and-feel redesign, we get a number of requests for making navigation elements smaller or even eliminating them, allowing for much longer page titles, and expanding the number of items we allow in the "quick finder" table at the top of some pages.

It's making me think that in Web design, as in real life (as in Weight Watchers, for that matter!):

If you keep looking for more room to cram your stuff,
have you considered that maybe you have too much stuff?

:^p

Too much stuff? That's why we're putting an addition on our house! Thanks for reminding me, Karen, off that wonderful George Carlin routine. It's one of my all-time favorites.

I completely agree -- we ALL have too much stuff, too many ways to access it, too much to keep track of, to worry about, to read, to digest. And every day we're learning of new ways to spread more of our "stuff" out there to share with everyone. It's a lot to manage.
