I'm still at “An Event Apart: Philadelphia.” Eric Meyer reasured us that despite the fact that many of the CSS hacks we use to make Internet Explorer 6 work the way we want are not going to work with Internet Explorer 7, he believes that most of the hacks will no longer be necessary. Cool beans.
Jeffrey Zeldman used examples to show why clear, concise, and appropriate copy can help improve the performance of a web site.
Both Eric and Jeffrey are funny guys, with a deep understanding of the web world they inhabit. Eric's intuitive understanding of CSS is actually a little scary. Are all web designer/developers supposed to be that savvy? Jeffrey uses humor and analogy to get his ideas across - he'd make a great marketing man, because he does a fabulous job of selling his ideas. His thoughts on the user interface of language were very thought-provoking.
I feel like going home and redesigning/rewriting everything I've ever done.
