Carl writes about Design for a Better Living over at the Industry Standard. If you're a Web designer, you should read this and then think about how much your job really sounds like that. Design is not art, the client (or the CD or the PM or the CEO) is going to make your site look like shit, and if you don't get that, you need to buckle up and take a ride to the clue store. Of course, this is coming from someone who still thinks that "if I change that button, it will ruin the whole composition of the interface."

Also, did you notice how nice the print version of the above article reads so well? That's because you don't have all this navigational and advertising crap distracting you. The concept of white space on the Web is almost non-existant.
