The web we may have lost - Christian Heilmann

The current blow to the open web that is the Net Neutrality ruling feels terrible to me.
My generation saw the web emerge and many of us owe our careers to it. (…) I am not surprised that it came to this. The world-wide-web always scared the hell out of those who want to control what people consume and what their career is. The web was the equaliser.

Blue Beanie Day

Once again it is time to show some love for Web Standards.
Ten years ago, the "Blue Beanie Day" was invented, and if you are wondering how on earth wearing a blue knitted hat helps the Web Standard movement, well,

Is this silly or serious? Seems to me, it’s a bit of both. If enough people do it on enough social networks, it might even raise web standards awareness in a small but positive way. (As opposed to,

CSS Grid Support - Edge now has it, too

Yes! I cannot think of another new spec that has landed in all major browsers in under one year. Over at A List Apart is a very interesting article on the history of the CSS Grid and by whom and how it was made possible.

On October 17th, Microsoft’s Edge browser shipped its implementation of CSS Grid. This is a milestone for a number of reasons. First, it means that all major browsers now support this incredible layout tool. Second, it means that all major browsers rolled out their implementations in a single year(!), a terrific example of

Where Does The Design Agency Go From Here? - Paul Woods/Edo van Dijk

(…) Design is no longer just about design.
Design doesn’t mean making visual solutions. Digital doesn’t mean being a web monkey, producing only websites and apps. Such developments as the rise of artificial intelligence, screenless design and accessibility to great website-building tools like Squarespace mean that the agency that interprets digital design as “making websites and apps” is going to be out of business—and soon. To provide relevant design solutions, the modern agency needs to have business consultancy, copywriting, technology and analytics capabilities under one roof, and most important, these capabilities have to work together—not in silos.commarts.com

The web as a material

The concepts of apprenticeship and mastership seem to not apply on the Web. When it comes to building a house, you will search for a trusted architect and carpenter, and you'll measure their credibility by means of their experience, which in turn will be a matter of the time they spent exercising their craft. On the Web, even the 16-year-old nephew of your neighbour seems to be able of doing the job. Developers tend to call themselves "engineers" without being aware of the public responsibility that this title used to come along with.

Breaking Out Of The Tetris Mindset - Christian Heilmann @ Beyond Tellerrand Conference, Düsseldorf 2017

Tetronimos by Christian Heilmann

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

I'd never thought being seen as a 'conservative blocker on the right', but obviously, when it comes to the foundational layers of building stuff for the web, I find myself more on the right side of Chris' block chain (although the 'square' would describe my attitude best).

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.

The Secret Life of Comedy - Espen Brunborg @ Beyond Tellerrand Conference, Düsseldorf 2017

This is my favorite talk from this year’s Dusseldorf edition of my favorite conference. Which was brimming with great talks, and to be fair, this “this is my favorite yaddayadda” is highly personal, and a short survey among attending friends showed that one person’s highlight didn’t impress another one and vice versa. Which is the secret sauce of the Beyond Tellerrand mixture (aside from the wonderful Tobi Lessnow of course).

So do yourself a favor and watch all of of the videos that already are online for your viewing pleasure.

I like this talk by Espen Brunborg ...

CSS Grid Support - Hello Opera

Well, to be honest, I hadn't Opera on my watch list, so it slipped my attention for a while. But, Opera, too, already has CSS-grid support. :-)
