We’re going to be bringing our daughter to Disney World for her first time pretty soon, so I have Disney on my mind on Blue Beanie Day 2013.
One of the things I love about Disney is how imagineers work hard to “plus” their creations, even when they’re already great.
They ask, how can we take an attraction that is already beloved, like Pirates of the Caribbean, and “plus it” with something fun and new? And soon enough, clever scenes of Captain Jack Sparrow join the fun.
I think that’s a great way to think about web standards.
First of all, huge congratulations to Mat Marquis, Jason Grigsby, Scott Jehl, Ethan Marcotte, Florian Rioval and all the other web geniuses who are working to make responsive images much, much easier for those working with responsive web design.
A Chasing After Wind is not just a short story collection; another story surrounds the telling of these stories. These contemporary stories walk the border between science fiction and fantasy, where moments of humor emerge from tragedies. Is this struggle in vain, a chasing after wind? Or does everyone deserve a second chance?
I am a web designer and developer with a passion for web standards, accessibility, usability, and information architecture. My toolbox includes hand-coding XHTML and CSS, Drupal, ColdFusion, and all things Adobe.
When my head is not in the web, I enjoy walks with my wife and dog through our lovely neighborhood (walks with our cat proved counterproductive), time with friends, traveling, reading, movies, fantasy and science fiction, Blu-Ray, a nice meal now and then, and all things iPhone.
If I were a flavor of ice cream, trust me, it would not be IE6.
