Joe Clark On Failed Redesigns

“A far superior and more eloquent berater of the incompetant than I”

Its a good morning for controversy with one of my favourite bloggers - accessibility expert Joe Clark - hitting it into some Failed Redesigns From 2005. He’s such an eloquent evangalist with this paragraph

When teenagers’ hobbyist blogs (short for “Web logs”) have better code than brand-new Web sites, somebody’s doing something wrong. And that somebody is you, the developer. In a just society you would simply be fired; in an Orwellian society you would be sent to a reëducation camp. Failing either of those, you could at least read a fucking book and upgrade your skills to a point where you are no longer a total laughingstock.

I tip my hat to Joe as a far superior and more eloquent berater of the incompetant than I would probably ever be in my dreams. Awesome article mate and everyone should be reading it now instead of my inadequate ramble. Be gone with you to Joe’s then!

    Hi Matt
    Ha ha. I’m not in Joe’s league in either accessibility knowledge or passionate berating. I do so like to see a good pasting go up for me to look over every now and again though. Otherwise I get this complacent feeling everyone’s got the message - when I know many don’t.

    I liked the discussion he had with the copyright guy that ended with him saying to leave canada if they didn’t like the copyright laws.
