  • Two thousand twenty two

    This post by Jeff is kind of like a tragic comedy. While it is laughable how ridiculous it is that it will take that long for the HTML 5 spec to become “Proposed Recommendation”, it is also sad how long it takes for advances in browsers to actually happen.

  • Dear AIGA, where are the web designers?

    Jeffrey Zeldman points out that AIGA is really not catering to Web Designers. I think they need to reevaluate their thinking because the Web is almost more important than any other form of media these days.

  • How To Keep The Freelancing Spark (Without Burning Out)

    Some nice tips to keep in mind to prevent from burning out. This is especially important to people like me who have a full-time job and freelance on the side.
