  • usercomics User Comics at User Comics These are all really great basic design principles. (And btw I don't think this talk is just for newbies). But I don't really get #6. Or rather, I get that it would be fabulous to invent a structure which WAS truly designed for growth. But what kind of growth? Is it possible to design structures that can naturally and elegantly accommodate real shifts in direction in types of content and site goals? Would love to see an exploration of that... 3 years ago
