Great one, thanks for sharing. And since this is good old HTML, I will use # like this: hasthtag gopher && hashtag greatsite && hashtag thumbsup

The Website Obesity Crisis: «Everything we do to make it harder to create a website or edit a web page, and harder to learn to code by viewing source, promotes that consumerist vision of the web. Pretending that one needs a team of professionals to put simple articles online will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Overcomplicating the web means lifting up the ladder that used to make it possible for people to teach themselves and surprise everyone with unexpected new ideas.»
