Dear Developer, The Web Isn’t About You
An informed cultural and technical rant about the present day web industry by a self-described “old lady”
Look at it this way: you don’t just build cars that only work in the best conditions, do you? Imagine a car that only worked on a sunny day, on a flat road! Oh, how silly that would be. No, you build it so that it works in horrible weather so that it works when driven over grass or a gravel dirt road. In the same way, you don’t just build sites that only work in the best conditions.
You’re a web developer. Your job is to make a site work for everyone, in all conditions.
