    Apart from the obvious things wrong with this article, it's also just not true. I'm working on Virtual Reality UI (which I would consider to be some of the most exciting stuff you can do in terms of UI today), and I still find sites and web technologies that simply blow me away. There are way better and more tools out there to do amazing stuff, than ever before.

    Sure, the mainstream websites are going to be restrained, but that's the case with anything in the world that becomes established. Shopping malls are essentially a copy and paste of every other mall, but it works great for that purpose and people are used to it. When a platform matures, it also establishes certain standards. There's nothing wrong with that, as long as people are still innovating, which is clearly still happening as well.

    Perhaps the author needs to visit DesignerNews, CssLine, etc. more often, to see what is happening outside of the mainstream.
