Frank Chimero, “Everything Easy Is Hard Again”

Time and practice really do help.

Except with the websites. They separate themselves from the others, because I don’t feel much better at making them after 20 years. My knowledge and skills develop a bit, then things change, and half of what I know becomes dead weight. This hardly happens with any of the other work I do. …

If knowledge about the web deteriorates quickly, it’s worthwhile to develop a solid personal philosophy toward change and learning. …

“Go slow and fix things.” …

The web also needs diligent people so that the idea of what the web is and what it does remains legible to everyone.
