Es startete vorhin mit einem Tweet, an den ich Antwort an Antwort hängte, bis ich mir dachte, hm, da will wohl ein Blogeintrag daraus werden:
Je länger ich 'was mit web' mache, umso weniger interessieren mich die 'trendigen' fe/ux geschichten, umso mehr aber die ethischen aspekte.
dezentral. zugänglich. offen. neutral. sowas halt
… je mehr ich mich da engagiere, umso untauglicher werde ich für 'kommerzielles' tagesgeschäft der "webagentur".
… statt mein wissen in die 5000. iteration einer everyfuckingwebsite.com zu stecken, würde ich lieber was sinnvolles unterstützen.
… wo es wirklich menschen hilft. wo gedanken zu performance und ...
Happy Birthday, dear 'web'. 28 years: You are not going to join the 27 club, which is a good thing, but you picked up some bad habits recently.
(…) I imagined the web as an open platform that would allow everyone, everywhere to share information, access opportunities, and collaborate across geographic and cultural boundaries. In many ways, the web has lived up to this vision, though it has been a recurring battle to keep it open. But over the past 12 months, I’ve become increasingly worried about three new trends, which I believe we must tackle in order for
Dedicated to all the people who work to make the web a little better every day
[…] a documentary film about the web […] It is the story of Tim Berners-Lee’s creation – how it came to be, where it’s been, and where it’s going – as told by the people who build it.
Wer verstehen will, warum ich seit Mitte der neunziger Jahre "was mit Web" mache, worin die Faszination dieses Mediums für mich besteht - 'ne Stunde Zeit nehmen und diesen Film auf Vimeo anschauen.

Jeremy Keith has published a new book, and anyone who's enjoyed one of his recent talks about the build-in robustness of the core web technologies, and how we managed to cripple it by designing with the wrong focus, might want to read this.
I certainly do, this is very much up my alley.
With a title like Resilient Web Design, you might think that this is a handbook for designing robust websites. This is not a handbook. It’s more like a history book. (…) You won’t find any code in here to
Brad has coined the term 'Atomic design' (although there has been a slight and friendly banter with Andy Clarke about who first mentioned this as an idea how elements of a design can be organized) for his idea for a methodology to create the 'lego' bricks for a (web) design system.
I think the real power in his idea is not that it is new (it is not), but that the analogy to atoms, molecules, organisms, and the assembly into templates/pages very much encompasses the endless variety that such a 'simple' system can produce, which is exactly what designing for ...
I find myself falling down deeper and deeper inside the rabbit hole that my profession as a designer for the web is. The more complex, daunting and exciting the task gets to make something work on an unknown number of devices, for users with a wide range of technical, physical and mental capabilities in an even wider set of context and surroundings, the more I find solace in the core ideas of the 'early web': This is for everyone. From my experience in the last 20 years, we focussed on the wrong side of web 'design'; the adaptation of ...
Ha! It! Really! Works!
I have to admit I was a bit sceptical of the outcome after I tweaked and added things and bits of my website at the Indiewebcamp in Nuremberg, setting up a service worker and offline caching things, adding a manifest file … while in theory I understand what all of this was supposed to do, I felt a bit dumb for not completly grasping how to control the stuff.
So as so often when learning new tricks on the web, it started with copy/pasting a working solution and trying to adapt this to my ideas.
