In my capacity of webmaster I have built as well as maintain the following websites for colleagues, others and myself. I regard the web as its own medium which should not try to simulate printed pages.
"The web is a new medium, although it has emerged from the medium of
printing, whose skills, design language and conventions strongly
influence it. Yet
it is often too shaped by that from which it sprang. “Killer Web Sites” are usually those which tame the wildness of the web, constraining pages as if they
were made of paper – Desktop Publishing for the Web. This conservatism is natural, “closely held beliefs are not easily released”, but
it is time to move on,
to embrace the web as its own medium.
It’s time to throw out the rituals of the printed page, and to
engage the medium of the web and its own nature."
