I’ve been disappointed by the lack of thoughtfulness and the general berevity of articles on A List Apart for…well…coming up on a year. Things have been ramping up recently, and have finally peaked at with Ben Henick’s 12 Lessons for Those Afraid of CSS and Standards. What a great, thoughtful, and intelligently written piece.
One of my favorites quote (and point) is: Lesson No. 4 (with thanks to Antoine de Saint-ExupÃ©ry): Perfection is not when thereâ€™s nothing to add, but when thereâ€™s nothing to take away.
This is the kind of writing I used to come to ALA for.
