I wonder if the Henry Ford â€œfaster horsesâ€ statements can be made to apply to design. Is it possible that ugly sites are more attractive to the generations before M, because thatâ€™s what theyâ€™re used to? Brought up on green-screens and blue-screens-of-death anything looks beautiful. That generation loves looking at Excel screens on a BlackBerry, remember?
I wonder if I can extend that supposition. If a site is NOT ugly and yet IS popular, can I assume that it is used by Generation M?
