We’ve cancelled @AnEventApart DC and Seattle. Stay safe, everyone.
30 years ago my life changed forever, and I didn’t even know it at the time. The web is 30 years old today. Happy birthday, WWW.
Tap, tap. Is this thing on?
I’ll share first impressions soon. Currently I’m too busy learning.
“Why most redesigns fail” by Girish Rawat. Classic truths every designer and product manager should know. Accessible, well paced article for folks at all levels of experience. Nice quick case studies of failed redesigns. link.medium.com/3V9YRoAEdT
#Wordpress was the first standards-compliant CMS. I hand-coded my blog starting in 1995, and would still be doing it if WordPress had not come along. Next year, after exhausting a half dozen other platforms, @AListApart will come home to WordPress.
