Going Forward in Reverse

Ok, it is time to but an ugly thread to rest and move on. For the past year or so (maybe even 2 years if you are reading certain blogs and sites) all discussion in the web design community has been focused on web standards and CSS. Some of the more experienced web designers are starting to get annoyed, here is a great round-up from Paul Scrivens: "They Are Just Tools Man." I couldn't agree more. I remember some of the hallway conversations from last year's WebVisions event here in Portland. They included the phrase "why do they have a marketing and ROI person up there speaking?" I hate to tell you this, but we are going to do it again this year. If you really understand the main issues on the Web today, you'd ask yourself, "why isn't there more web marketing and ROI people in the web industry?" Food for thought.
