The Beyond Tellerrand Conference keynote by Christian Heilmann resonates with me, much.

Tetronimos by Christian Heilmann

Again, this talk is very much worth your time, and don't forget to read the corresponding blog post, which goes deeper into the topic.

(…) There’s been a meme going around for a while that summarises this feeling quite well. It is about the game Tetris:
“If Tetris has taught me anything, it’s that errors pile up and accomplishments disappear”
There is some truth to that. We worked for almost two decades on the web and the current state of it isn’t too encouraging. The average web site is too big to consume on mobile devices and too annoying to do so on laptops. We limit things too much on mobile. We cram a proverbial kitchen sink of features, code and intrusive advertising into our desktop solutions.

You don’t owe the world perfection, but you have a voice that should be heard and your input matters. Get creative – no creativity is a waste.
