Simple Web Site Look-and-Feel
By cjsasaki on Mar 12, 2007
In reading Warren Buffett's letter to his shareholders, I find it really amazing to look at Bershire Hathaway's web site. It is simplicity to the max. Maybe the growth of Berkshire's stock from $19/share 42 years ago to $70,281 in 2006 speaks for itself. Now if they used Courier Font, that would have been bold. Reading Mr. Buffett's letter, I find it amazingly personal in his characterizations of GEICO's CEO and his discussions about the company. So the big question for those of us running major web sites is will this simplistic style become the norm again when users utilize services that aggregate RSS feeds into a personal page?
If you haven't checked out Berkshire's site, you should.
I like how they promote some of their key invested companies. Of course, this site is copyright Berkshire Hathaway.
