Designing the Websites of the Future (Or: Do Websites Still Have the Power to Change the World?)

By | Marketing, web design | No Comments

So, we just stumbled upon this article about ‘the websites that changed the world’ which, coming all the way from 2006, felt a little bit like a time capsule from a simpler age. An age of MySpace. At any rate, all the usual suspects made it onto the list: eBay… Wikipedia… Google (heard of them?). And, with a few notable exceptions – most of which are still several years old (we’re thinking not just Twitter and Facebook which arguably owe MySpace a debt, but also sites like Netflix, Buzzfeed and maybe even ODesk), any list that we came up with today would be pretty much exactly the same. Even if the examples changed the genre, or type, of site would be the same.
