Puzzled: Why Would “Web Design Be Dead?”

Web design: dead or not? Frankly, the very act of raising such an issue is baffling to me. After all, to design is to gather, organize and fix things so as not to make a mess. The idea of not needing design then would be almost like saying, “Whee, I don’t have to coordinate my clothes anymore. Just throw on whatever.” Or worse, “Whee, we don’t need clothes anymore.”

As much as I want to comment, I shall, however, hold my tongue for now. My intent is simply to post the links for your perusal. First, the original article from uxmag.com and second, the response to that post from Smashing Magazine. What do you think?
