Observations 1.26.2008

January 26, 2008

If you work for a ‘web’ company, ie, a company who handles products targeted directly for the web, I have a few observations which may help.

  • iFrame – Know what they are. (i personally despise iframes)
  • HTML – It’s the English language of the web. To quote Jules Winnfield  : “English, Motherfucker, do you speak it?”
  • Pop-ups – I don’t care if you’re using _blank to kick open a new browser window or some JavaScript shenanigans, don’t pop up a new window for a freekin’ link. Understand why this is * a * bad * thing.  (yes, I do it for pdf’s, but reluctantly.)
  • RSS – Don’t try to sell me RSS as a replacement for pulling content from databases. It’s “syndication” not “making up for a lack of a product feature”
