Tagged with: “24ways”
I wrote an ode to personal websites for one of my faves, 24ways. Featuring inspiring (and rights-respecting) websites from people whose work I love and respect. Also including a festive sprinkling of Site.js, which is making my development life much easier. I love the little festive summary they wrote for me: “Laura Kalbag discusses the gift of personal data we give to Big Tech when we share information on its platforms, and how reviving ye olde personal website can be one way to stay in control of the content we share and the data we leak.
It’s been a few years since I wrote something for 24ways, but this year I’m back, making the case for semantic HTML. As I mention in the article, I see a lot of redundant and unsemantic HTML while I’m working on Better. HTML is often seen as easy, and therefore not worth learning in detail. It’s frustrating because HTML is one of the few completely unavoidable technologies of the web.
