Nice interview, I liked the “web standards fascism” answer. Bravo!

Unfortunately, the “all or nothing” approach of some standards Zealots just give people another reason not to adopt web standards.

Go on Comrade, name names… you know you want to… :)

That was a great interview…

by far the most difficult aspect of web standards development is buggy, inconsistent browsers.

I agree with that… I’ve had a tough time trying to develop a website to be compatible with most browsers… takes time and dedication.. and even then, there might still be some issues.

I bought a cheap computer, and with the help of sites like webmonkey and ask doctor web, I taught myself basic web design skills. I set to work building up a bit of a portfolio of sites and was very soon working as a freelance web designer.

it sounds all so familar….

Yes, I happened upon that last nite, emailed the link to myself at work, and read it today on my morning break.

Good stuff, sir. :thumbsup:

I guess the most difficult concepts for me were CSS positioning and floating. However, by far the most difficult aspect of web standards development is buggy, inconsistent browsers.

That’s so right! Great way to put it.

I also like the feeling of seeing something evolve before my eyes and the feeling of accomplishment when the jobs finished and the clients are happy.

Sounds like another part time job you do in Brighton :)
