Is it too early to go retro and build a web 1.0 site yet? You know – just to be cool. Like wearing 60’s clothes in the 60’s was really cool. Wearing them in the 70’s was NOT, then wearing them a few decades later was really cool again.

So my question is, when will it become cool (in a retro way) to design a web 1.0 website? Or better yet, since there are so many web 1.0 websites still around, a web 0.1 website. Think animated gif’s, jarring colors, lots of frames, maybe even some embedded midi’s.

I’m only suggesting this because it’s getting harder and harder to be cutting edge. Things online are evolving so rapidly, you always have to think of a new “hip” angle. Why not retro? That’s cool. And hip. Right?
