About this site's lack of design: Yes, it's supposed to look this way — I'm using a sandbox theme for WordPress (see it on GitHub).

Designing With Web Standards

Tuesday, May 13th, 2003

It’s out. Final­ly. No more waiting.

By “it” I am of course refer­ring to Zeld­man’s new book, Design­ing With Web Stan­dards (here­after known as DWWS). I am anx­ious­ly await­ing the arrival of my own copy, and after perus­ing the sam­ple chap­ters it promis­es to be a very inter­est­ing read.

In hon­or of Zeld­man’s lat­est accom­plish­ment, I’ve added a new graph­ic to the ran­dom­ly rotat­ing images you see atop most pages with­in this site, as well as a ban­ner to the side­bar (which will even­tu­al­ly link to the book via my Ama­zon affil­i­ate account; if I can only find that email con­fir­ma­tion…) so you will nev­er be more than a click away from this great new resource.

Con­grats JZ: nice job, as usual.

Ephemera Rules

Friday, May 9th, 2003

I know it’s not much, but for those of you arriv­ing here via Zeldman.com I’d just like to say: “hey.”

Take a look around, kick the tires (this pub­lic-redesign is pret­ty tough when no one gives you feed­back…) and let me know what you think, or what you find in the way of prob­lems. Be aware that the deep­er you delve into this site, the more incon­sis­ten­cies you are like­ly to find…

Almost all my read­ers are com­ing from the link on Zeld­man’s site today, and I’d cer­tain­ly love to hear from some of you!

UPDATE: It was point­ed out that the site was miss­ing its archives, so for those who want to explore, I present to you: Super­flu­ousArchives
