It’s not the first speculative Wikipedia redesign that we’ve seen, but it goes further than most, paying particularly close attention to issues of navigation and interaction.
You owe it to yourself to scroll through the site, understanding exactly what the thoughts are behind all of these drastic “proposed” changes.
While it’s not the first conjectural Wikipedia redesign that I’ve seen, but it goes further than most.
