Watch this. Understand this. For quite a while now I really think we are at a crucial point in the history of the web.

For the ninth year I attended this great small conference about Web, Design and going beyond. Here are some notes and thoughts. Maybe I polish it later, but I want to get this out of my head. These moments stuck with me - which does not mean that any talk that is not mentioned here…


The Power of Metaphor - Mike Hill @Beyond Tellerrand Conference, Düsseldorf 2019

This talk yesterday kind of illustrated the frame for many of the stories that were told by the talks that followed. The circle of stories, the archetypes, the whole 'going from the known to the unknown', the 'old self / new self' transformation, the dragon's den… there's a lot of that to be found in…

The practical value of semantic HTML – Bruce Lawson

When Sir Bruce speaks up, you'd better listen. That's the law, son. (…) If the importance of good HTML isn’t well-understood by the newer breed of JavaScript developers, then it’s my job as a DOWF (Dull Old Web Fart) to explain what it means, and why it’s important. Gather round, Fullstack JavaScript Developers – together…


SMEgnorance

(The following is my translation of my blog post "KMUnverstand" which originally was published in German and seemed to resonate with quite a few people in my web dev bubble. It surely is full of grammar- and spelling-errors, but I hope the gist of it will come across anyway) In our small web-studio we have…
