Lateral Thinking With Withered Technology - Matthias Ott

How Nintendo won the world and what this may have to do with a sane approach to building web experiences…


Why is CSS frustrating? - Robin Rendle

Very good read on the cognitive load CSS seems to put on "real" developers:


The History Of The URL - Zack Bloom

Here's a great read about the history of the URL. (via adactio.com)


WordPress’s role in a changing web - Heather Burns

20 minutes very worth your reading time, if you are interested in the open web, and the role large open source projects like WordPress should play in regard of policy making, and the reasons why this is not happening. All the while other interested parties try to shape the regulations that are underway and a…


Keep on Posting in the Free Web

The news of the shut-down of one of (my) oldest got-to places on the web, the "Fender Discussion Pages", has made me think, again, about how the web has changed. Hey Hey, my my content on the web will never die… I am a strong advocat for 'owning your content' and having a personal web…


RIP Fenderforum

The Fender Discussion Pages have shut down right now, after being online for 20+ years. This forum, not affiliated with the official Fender brand, was active since 1999 and one of my main sources when I got my first Fender Offset Guitar, a Jaguar, around that time. Info on these was so rare back then,…


The Layers Of The Web

Jeremy Keith's talk at Beyond Tellerrand Berlin 2019 about the "layers of the web" (be sure to watch this!) inspired me to a quick css animation experiment on codepen: See the Pen Web Layers Of Pace by Tom (@webrocker) on CodePen. Be sure to look at it in the full screen mode, the thing currently…

It echoes my stance and resentiment against all client-side only JS 'app'ification, and that is even without the meta aspects about society and representation that Charly…


This is the end of the web as we know it

… and I don't feel fine. die anstehende beschlossene Urheberrechtsreform der EU; die geplante "EU-Verordnung zur Verhinderung der Verbreitung terroristischer Online-Inhalte", und mal ein paar Newsmeldungen der letzten Tage: Official EU Agencies Falsely Report More Than 550 Archive.org URLs as Terrorist Content: Österreich plant Bundesgesetz über Sorgfalt und Verantwortung im Netz (SVN-G): Das russische Parlament…


The World-Wide-Work – Ethan Marcotte @ New Adventures, Nottingham, 24.1.2019


Matthias Ott: Saving your web workflows with prototyping

Oh, Matthias did it again: Publishing one of his thorough articles on the challenges of designing/working with "the web". It is again one of those articles that I'd wished to have written myself, because it echoes my thoughts (and my frustration) about the unfitting ways I am forced to work in when I'm doing client…


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.
