On Yammer (which is a terrible platform for discussions, by the way) I was having a discussion about the usage of custom fonts on websites. A visual designer argued that the web was more and more about experiences and that we should do everything in our might to make these experiences as incredible as possible. And today on Twitter (which is a terrible platform for discussions as well, but I really like discussing on Twitter) Johan Ronsse wondered
why all evolution in eBook space stopped after the Al Gore book. This tweet and the yammer-message got me thinking. Are richer experiences really what we need? Does evolution mean ever richer experiences?
