    Am I the only one who don't like the videos as background?

    Anyone know who's the designer behind Mega and Baboom?

    All hail Kim Dotcom, the king of the internet!

    I love the color scheme! But I do find the video in the background very distracting (maybe may a more static page, or slow it down). In terms of the internal page. I love the overall design, I'm just having a hard time figuring out what to look at first. There seems to be a little too much going on with the three columns. Maybe make them one column and keep the icon navigation at the top?

    This page is better to check the design :) http://baboom.com/kimdotcom

      The developers page is also really nice. http://baboom.com/developers/

      This design suffers from an drawback I am hitting in my current project. The three columns are of variable height, which is a problem when one column is significantly taller than the rest.

      For instance, Dotcom's activity feed is very long, and after scrolling down a bit, you are in a position where the first six tracks of the album are off the screen. Scrolling up keeps the track listing fixed while scrolling the activity feed. Only when you reach the top of the activity feed does the track listing start moving again.

      Making each column scrollable is one solution. This is not horrible on OS X, but the gluttony of scrollbars is overwhelming on Windows. This also breaks down when you have additional content below the columns. (The user would still need to scroll the entire activity feed first.) But really, scrollbars.

      Another solution (implemented here) is providing a link to the top. Clicking the orange bar that appears when you scroll down brings the user to the top of the page. This is obviously heavy handed, and (for instance) loses the user's spot in the activity feed.
