Lessons learnt on user interface design
-Simple Sites Can Be Colorful and good looking and not heavy on the same time.
-Make your web easy to redesign and change colors the design of a daily blog or web is really important when people would open it everyday the design shouldn't be boring because some people would get bored of the web...
-I'm still learning...but everything have been perfect until now no Problems! :D

I work Individually I don't have a web design team until now but I'm planing to make my own team.
In the current interactive world, what is the most relevant trend?
Social Multimedia Sites! like Myspace,Twitter,Facebook and Hi5...

What would you do to terminate Internet spam once and for all?
I think Dani Kurani Is Right :p
Give all of the spammers their own island and a lot of money, then they wouldn't waste their time spamming. and then the Problem would be solved.:D
