People in the technology sector often get their predictions wrong. Many saw a “multimedia revolution” coming back in the 80’s but few knew what it would entail. Would we sell speakers and CD-roms, or more software and color printers? And sure, we need a new DVD format but will it come now or in ten years?
As I turned yet another blog of mine to the WordPress engine it occured to me that once again, interface rules. Once a user gets used to it, why bother learning anything else? Which also explains why people give away so much software (like WordPress) in order to get you attached to some other payable product.
Same applies to mobile phones, heck there are people who consider the original Nokia (pre touch screen) universe, an interface that they are fond of! (It’s true you can do simple stuff really fast on those phones …)
Anyway, www.alexanderchalkidis.com/blog is still down for server upgrade and I am not sure whether I will even bother to keep trying with that blog engine anymore. The back up copy of everything up to the time of back up is up at http://www.alexanderchalkidis.com/DotNet for your reference. That is two years’ worth of bloging and SEO experimentation there!
