The Noodle Incident:

“‘The Web is not Print’. This isn’t news to anyone. But the web isn’t screen either. Or more accurately it is print, and screen, and voice, and many other things.”

I just stumbled upon this brilliant article, a rant about why we should design pages with all types of devices in mind — not just popular web browsers. CSS and basic, clean, valid XHTML (or HTML) allows us to do this.

Tim Bray asks What’s Next for RSS? It’s a good little article. It’s funny to me when people refer to RSS as an XML language. It’s really just XML — with a pre-defined set of rules so that whatever reads it on the other end, be it a browser, application or whatever, knows what to expect.
