...the pitfalls of following trendiness over logic...in the grip of commercial hype, and disinformation.. Market demands are are shinyness and trendiness over logic.( style over substance values)...the effect of mass advertising to the gullible masses, and to the gullibility of those masses, not to quality...
Exactly my point Brent. If, as a consumer, I don't buy into your arguments, according to you I'm falling into the obvious pit, throwing away logic while being mesmerized by shinyness and trendiness, sacrificing my values and money to style over substance, and, most damning, being gullible.
That's not propagandizing?
I have never wanted to build a lot of boats, just enough to help the small percentage of practical people.
What is that percentage? Maybe 1%? What happened to the 99%?
I'll drop this debate now. Like I've said many times, you have some great ideas. But you don't have the answers
you think you have. As has always been the case throughout history, great design is an alchemy of many things (form, function, utility, demand, durability, cost, scalability, fun, and on and on). If you focus on only 1 or 2 of these things and declare that THAT is "the answer" and/or "the only 'logical' conclusion" - you're missing it.
Now to the important stuff...What do you think about Night Runner?
