Just now it took me ~60 seconds to find something simple that I was looking for on a popular web-based software tool that underwent a site redesign a month or two ago. I was a little bit annoyed, but I also feel a bit like an old fart complaining about change.

I truly don't know whether to blame the (confusing?) new design, or myself for not being up-to-date with whatever modern design trends are. And should I have to be?

Like I've seen young (5-10 year old) children interact with smartphones and tablets, and it's clear to me that the way they navigate an unfamiliar interface is truly different then how I would likely approach things.

Human patterns shift over time, and that's fine. At what point is it acceptable to just blame me, the user?
