Who would make the best President?

Okay, this is long, but here’s what Steve Kirsch, MIT-educated multi-millionaire founder of Infoseek and other things (also, his foundation contributes to my employer), thinks about who would make the best President.

Obviously one condition of my linking to it is that it just happens to reflect my preference for John Edwards….

“We’re not daunted.”

Before a tough road trip, Brewers manager Ned Yost:

“We’re not daunted.”

After the Brewers went 5-13:

“It was daunting. It wasn’t daunting at the time but it proved to be daunting.”

Microsoft is (again) wrong

Hypercorrection happens.

A List Apart: Web Design Survey

Web Survey Button

Okay, well, probably not a lot of web designers visit my blog. (Probably not a lot of people in general visit my blog.) But I’ll link to this to increase its traffic.

A List Apart, my favorite online magazine for people who make the web, is conducting a Web Design survey. They say that it:

… will help us form a picture of the ways web design is practiced around the globe. We hope that making this data available will have a positive effect on best practices and employment, and will enhance public understanding of, and respect for, our profession.

So — if any part of your job is web design, take the survey!

Deaniacs for Edwards

So I went to the California Democratic Convention in San Diego last weekend. It was a productive experience… I networked with some people, got to see most of the Democratic presidential candidates speak, and got a resolution that I wrote passed on the convention floor (and did almost no promotion for — meaning it passed solely on merit, which is kind of cool).

[This paragraph didn’t age well, but we all make mistakes. – JG, 5/29/21] I went to the convention already having committed to supporting John Edwards, and my conviction that he should be the next President of the United States has only strengthened. However, I know a lot of people went in with an open mind. One friend of mine, fellow delegate, and fellow DFA’er (Dean for America and Democracy for America) Dan Wood, decided during Edwards’ speech that he was now on board with Edwards ’08. So here he’s already gone and started Deaniacs for Edwards. What an achiever! I’m impressed and humbled by his insanely efficient effectiveness.
