Does anybody else get the sense that GUIs are fast approaching a brick wall? I mean, there are thousands of reconfigurations of check boxes, drop-down menus, text fields, etc., and you just relabel to suit your needs.

Where are the innovations in Web design these days? That aspect too has almost hit the wall.

I think the whole UX/CX field is approaching its limit and won't show a significant break until somebody leaps out of the point-and-click interface world.

I'm not saying a writer shouldn't contribute to the GUI or that this isn't a valid area of skill. But it's getting such a "been there, done that" feel and I have to say it's almost been like that since the 90's or certainly since the early 2000's.
