A Time to flame

Siliconvalley.Com is taking the plunge and going in for a radical redesign, which can be previewed here. I was never a huge fan of the old design, especially since they use the serif font face Georgia [ask any old school designer and they will instantly tell you serif fonts are a no-no for stuff that is meant for reading] for their body copy. The only saving grace was the font size which sort of makes up for it.

Having seen the new design though, I think I like the old one better. This one is a horrible mishmash and it really sprays the best thing about the site, the brilliant content, all over the place. Take a look and let them know what you think of it. Go on, indulge, get your few kilobytes of fame in the information architecture spotlight :p
