Internet Culture @4-ch

Internet Culture, sub-cultures, the people who use the internet and everything else relating to is up for discussing. Let's try to talk about more than just imageboard websites, as there is more to the internet than just them.

Decreasing usability on the web (8)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2016-04-21 07:22 ID:ReD2ZvAk

It seems like the web is getting harder to use.

Or maybe I'm just getting older.

  • I was using a search bar on a website. It had no "search" button ... it was just a text field. I tried hitting enter and nothing happened. The screen didn't change or anything. I finally reloaded and tried again and THEN my search actually returned results.
  • I was tabbing through a webpage, but the links were never highlighted or outlined to let me know that I was tabbed on them.
  • Webpages have become harder to read! I'm serious. There is something wrong with the new age typefaces. It's like someone decided to make a new font that inherited 3 X chromosomes so every character could be big, but skinny.

I am not adapting well to the future at all.

I think you're forgetting some things:

There's the 'flat design' bullshit that people think 'is artistic':

  • links and regular text only have a slight hue and saturation difference that's hard to spot, there's no underline on links like what we've been doing since the fucking early 90s
  • buttons are just icons now
  • everything on one huge-ass page that you have to scroll down or if you click a link? The page will smoothly scroll you down, which I bet works great on low-powered mobile devices, like my ARM laptop that I've got.
  • dark patterns about everywhere

Worst of all? This shit is starting to infect traditional desktop computing too.

Are those buttons on that dialog box or just text decoration? Who fucking knows?! The only help you get is the layout of the window.

Welcome to the aneurysm that is the Google design guidelines.

>Surfaces and edges of the material provide visual cues that are grounded in reality. The use of familiar tactile attributes helps users quickly understand affordances. Yet the flexibility of the material creates new affordances that supercede those in the physical world, without breaking the rules of physics.

What a breath of fresh air. They want the designs to seem as realistic as interactions we have in the real world.

Let's try it out:

https://material-design.storage.googleapis.com/publish/material_v_4/material_ext_publish/0Bx4BSt6jniD7WlduMk1kbTRzQWc/components_buttons_main15.png

That's right. According to google (and reality, apparently), pressing a button is actually the opposite. You're really pulling the button toward yourself!

The biggest palpable decline in the past half-decade has been the fall of the search engine and SEO wars. The Internet has become difficult to navigate and less usable largely because it's impossible to find something you're not looking for by name anymore.

The web is barely even fit to be named as such any more, it's more like a bicycle wheel, where you can be on the rim, but all paths--the spokes--lead to the centre: Google and Facebook.

This isn't even getting into the actual bullshit on the computers, where apparently the actual ACT of using a computer should be an experience and a delight in itself. And its affecting Linux Desktop Environments as well.

I'm so mad about this I might become a Luddite by choice.

We made the developers in charge of development, and the designers in charge of design. So we have developers making software into a rolling beta because it's fun (and assures long-term employment to fix the bugs their games created), and the designers treat it all as one big art project. Look at how much system resources are used to generate all that nothing they have in their designs. And all this just causes problem on the new F/UHD screens because their pretty pictures don't scale well, and for some reason fucking boxes can't seem to scale well. If we had stuck with bitmap graphics and fonts (at least for the UI) we'd just need to double up the pixels and call it a day.

And don't even get me started on some of the CSS coloring people use for their standards in HTML. I saw a site the other day that had their bold font set to be normal weight and underlined, and their link font to be bold, but without an underline.

Eternal September (14)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2016-05-25 03:32 ID:i8SteKU4

On The Elitist Superstructure of DQN an organization and board that does not exist, the day counter increases without bound while the year remains 1993 and the month indicates September. This is in remembrance of the culture shock that happened in 1993 when the popular Internet service provider AOL offered access to Usenet to its customers. This important date will forever mark one of the steps of the Internet integrating into the lives of the general public.

Before 1993, Usenet was limited to mostly University use. Only staff, students and possibly other specially privileged people had access to any newsgroups or networks. The influx of users may have led to the decline of any existing culture; Before 1993, new people only came every September due to the new freshman students in the fall and they learned the culture or left by the end of the month, give or take. With Usenet access to all of the AOL customers there was a constant influx of new users, overwhelming any safeguards that were in place to handle new users. As the new people never quieted down September 1993 was dubbed Eternal September.

In this thread post
  • Your own experiences relating to this event
  • Resources about learning what Usenet, the Internet or other forms of social media were like before Eternal September overwhelmed and changed any existing culture.

I guess the idea is interesting insofar as how a close-knit brotherhood experienced the mass serialization of its community. To me it seems kind of elitist. They lamented the collapse of their ivory tower; now every Joe Sixpack with a computer room and a floppy drive could speak their minds for six hundred free minutes, too.

I'm just about finished with the book "Where Wizards Stay Up Late". It's a biopic about the people who created ARPAnet and addresses some of the conflicts that you're talking about. I think you'd rather enjoy it.

Wanting one's own culture to be pure is fine so long as it doesn't get in the way of more important things. However, all should remember that intelligence does not necessarily lie in knowledge or conformity.
