Feedback on Google From Sassy

Matthew Lee says about my post about the City of San Diego and Google:

I think Don Norman said something like: “Even the term ‘navigation’ is pretentious–it assumes that people aren’t going to be able to find what they want without looking for it” Google rules, as far as I’m concerned google is the bar, and eventually the whole net will need to rise to it – Google is decentralized, networked information sharing. Once people become accustomed to finding exactly what they want, the dynamic of the web shifts from browsing ‘home pages’ and ‘Web Sites’ to just ‘getting information’- and that’s the kind of transparency that will allow the web to really become pervasive in day-to-day life.
