When I grow up ….

I want to be seen out and about in some brightly coloured, ill-fitting cycling gear with my crew of like-minded homeboys. Just like these fellas:


Bursting the bubble

Writing about web page http://www.alistapart.com/articles/web3point0

Lovely little piece from Jeffrey Zeldman on the hype and bluster and the sometimes poor behaviour attending upon the Web 2.0 bubble. Zeldman's polemic is measured and forceful and ends beautifully thus:

To you who are toiling over an AJAX- and Ruby-powered social software product, good luck, God bless, and have fun. Remember that 20 other people are working on the same idea. So keep it simple, and ship it before they do, and maintain your sense of humor whether you get rich or go broke. Especially if you get rich. Nothing is more unsightly than a solemn multi-millionaire. To you who feel like failures because you spent last year honing your web skills and serving clients, or running a business, or perhaps publishing content, you are special and lovely, so hold that pretty head high, and never let them see the tears. As for me, Iím cutting out the middleman and jumping right to Web 3.0. Why wait?

I like that final affirmation of the toil of many of us who publish content and serve clients. Thanks Zeldman.
