Some of you may have noticed that I am a web standards zealot. If you can't be bothered to take the time and learn a few simple rules you should not be writing documents to be read by anyone in the world using any random piece of software capable of rendering HTML. The internet has the nick name "information super highway" not "media blitz 5001" because it was designed to serve documents. I concede that it has come a long way towards "media blitz 5001" but that does not mean the original idea should be forgotten. I have no problem with a glitzy site as long as it is done right. What am I getting at you ask? Slashdot had a nice discussion about web standards in the developers section yesterday.

Oh, and think of hiring me next time you need a web site.
