You got this.

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 22/05/2019 pm31 15:30:00

I’M LEARNING new tech and it’s hard. Maybe you’re in the same boat. Through the rosy lens of memory, learning HTML and Photoshop back in the day was a breeze. It wasn’t, really. And CSS, when it came along in 1996, was even tougher to grasp—in part because it was mostly theoretical, due to poor […] The post You got this. appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.

My glamorous life: are you ready to math?

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 13/05/2019 am31 00:15:00

For the past two years, I’ve been publishing a daily work-and-life diary on Basecamp, sharing it with a few friends. This private writing work supplanted the daily public writing I used to do here. In an experiment, I’m publishing yesterday’s diary entry here today: YESTERDAY, Ava and a few of her schoolmates participated in a […] The post My glamorous life: are you ready to math? appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.

On Teaching (plus Monday links)

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 29/04/2019 pm30 14:30:00

TEACHING is a great way to find out what you know, and to connect with other human beings around a shared passion. It’s an energy exchange as well as an information one, and the energy and information flow both ways. I’ve been a faculty member in the MFA in Interaction Design program at New York’s […] The post On Teaching (plus Monday links) appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

Healthcare in America

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 23/03/2019 pm31 15:17:00

I’m one of the lucky ones. I have a great doctor and good health insurance. A boring generic healthcare company bought my longterm doctor’s group practice a few months ago. First thing they did was screw up the online patient portal, changing it from the poorly designed, barely usable mess I’d learned to navigate to […] The post Healthcare in America appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.

Browser diversity starts with us.

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 07/12/2018 pm31 15:04:00

Developers, designers, and strategists, here’s something you can do for the health of the web:  Test all your sites in Firefox. Yes, we should all design to web standards to the best of our ability. Yes, we should all test our work in *every* browser and device we can. Yes, yes, of course yes.  But […] The post Browser diversity starts with us. appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

The state of things

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 04/12/2018 pm31 16:43:00

At the end of therapy this morning, I felt like the lone Samurai at the end of a Japanese movie. His warlord has betrayed him, his fellow Samurai have fallen into dishonor, and the rice crop failed. After a last meditation, he emerges from his tent, sword flashing, to die fighting 10,000 men. I told […] The post The state of things appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.

A narcissist’s prayer of Thanksgiving. (My Glamorous Life)

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 18/11/2018 pm30 16:03:00

I’m about to have Thanksgiving at home with my daughter for the first time since her mom and I split ten years ago. Ours is a gender reversal of a typical divorce situation: usually it’s the mom who does the everyday caregiving, and the dad who gets holiday time with the kid(s). I grew up […] The post A narcissist’s prayer of Thanksgiving. (My Glamorous Life) appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

My Glamorous Life: On Returning

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 11/10/2018 pm31 20:34:00

Landed 10:00 PM JFK, picked up baggage after Delta sent everyone to the wrong carousel and an exhausted airport worker before giving up told maybe five passengers about the correct carousel, and those passengers told nobody else because people are selfish, but I am hyper-vigilant about luggage—being anxious and having had some bad experiences—so I […] The post My Glamorous Life: On Returning appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.
