Sticky Networks and UBUBU ... are attempting to bring eye-candy and ease of use to Web surfing through graphical navigation tools. In the process, they hope to create new and more lucrative channels for Internet advertising.A nightmare not only because of the crap about developing interface as a channel for advertising, but because of the (I think) HORRIBLE usability of the type of interfaces being discussed. UBUBU asks:

We think text is good, but pictures are better for finding things you care about.In his honor, I am downloading the "Marvel Planet" from UBUBU to try out this new-fangled interface.
