Jeremy Keith got a little hardboiled yesterday. I particularly like this paragraph that echoes everything I’ve been saying for years about setting wrong expectations:

Explaining your design work is part of your design work. It’s the same with web development. It’s our job to explain how the web works… and how the unevenly-distributed nature of browser capabilities is not a bug, it’s a feature.

Jeremy ends by saying:

The web is not a platform. It’s a continuum.

How I’ve explained it in my responsive design workshops is like this.

The web’s a river. It starts off narrow up in the mountains and gets wider and wider as it nears the sea, and you can never know at what point people will want to cross.


I’m fully booked until January 2021.

Talk soon
