Simplicity is the Key to a good website

Websites have come a long way the past few years, changing from information overload, to interactive overload, to clear and simple usability.  Credibility has become more and more important with the blogosphere growing daily.  When looking for the facts, users do not have a lot of patience.  They either want to log on, figure it out and move on.  Or they want to get online and spend a little time seeing what others are saying and share their own opinion. 

The website mentioned in the posting below, ABC.com does a great job at not forcing users to think.  There are 4 options of where to go off the main page... the schedule, info about shows, watch episodes, and community.  The first three covers the basics and "community" gives users the more dynamic side- with a blog, message board, etc.
