A Weakly Source Of Inspiration | January 29, 2004
Russ runs Max Design, a web design firm in Australia specialising in web standards. Many people will have come across Russ though his excellent Listomatic and Listutorial presentations. Since then, Russ has been building an archive of quality articles at a rate of knots. They are coming so thick and fast, Russ has just posted a new article while I'm still getting round to posting about his last one.
Russ also chairs an organisation called the Web Standards Group. This groups runs regular meeting around Australia, allowing web standards enthusiasts to meet up and discuss issues that interest them. The turnout for these meetings looks pretty good, so It would seem that Oz has one of the most web standards savvy workforces around. By comparison, a quick look at the London web standards group at meeetup.com reveals 3 active members!
The Web Standards Group has a good, active mailing-list and one that I've been tempted to join on a number of occasions, even though I'm not based in Australia (which is a shame in and of it's self!). The list discusses some really interesting topics including a recent one from Russ entitled, Real world use of standards.
If that's not enough, Russ is a regular poster on the webgraphics site. And I thought I was busy!
