3. Thank You Annie
â€“ Weâ€™re getting you a spiked collar for that unleashed Bulldog I know you are. Your generiosity does not go without notice.
4. Thank You
â€“ to everyone that still builds some things using tables so I donâ€™t feel all that outdated.
5. Thank You Chris
â€“ for burning a copy of the New Metallica CD: Happy Death Magnetic Day. I needed a break from JT.
I usually try to post something somewhat web industry related for my Random Friday Post, but this is just too cool to pass up.
This is for anyone that has ever dreamed of flying and by that I mean soaring high above the earth like a jet. Score one for Fusionman, Yves Rossy. Absolutely amazing!
Although I have no idea what the narrator is saying, I love the epic superhero music in the background.
Web Monkey… HTML Snob… CSS Guru… Code Elitist… Stylesheet Wizard…
Yep, I’ve been called all of those names and more. Honestly, I’m ok with it because I recognize I have a problem. It’s called addiction. It’s an evil, vile thing that controls me like nothing else ever has. It causes cold sweats, blurry eyes and many late nights in front of my laptop. I call it “a love”, but I know better. It’s like a physical dependency on oxygen. I gotta have my xhtml and css!
Of course I am talking about being addicted to web design. If your heart is beating faster and your palms are sweating just from reading this you may be addicted too!

You Know Youâ€™re Addicted To Web Design Ifâ€¦
This is my favorite snake oil salesman trick I have seen yet (click image for full size image). Make your offer letter look like an invoice and bank that people will pay it without thoroughly reading it! Brilliant!
They’re really counting on two things here:
- You’re too stupid to understand what this is and you’ll pay it out of fear.
- You’re too busy to read it, investigate the company and then determine if you need to pay it so you just pay it anyways.
Have a Great Weekend!
Yeah it’s been posted everywhere and it has become old, flat and tired, but I don’t care! I am posting it again because it hits so close to home for those of us involved in this wacky web world that everyone needs to see it a few more times. So, what do you think 2008 will bring?
Here’s my predictions:
- Everyone and their dog will say they do web design and SEO/SEM for $199 (or even $25). Nothing says craptastic quite like this!
- Google will roll at least one update as large or larger than the PageRank Update before the end of summer. Some Internet Marketers will cry for their mommy.
- More legacy web giants will shut their doors or be bought out.
- Counter design trends (or anti-trends) will take over a considerable amount of the market. Too-huge, glossy buttons will go back into the designer’s toolbox. Watch for urbanized designs, especially in logos, to explode.
- White will become the new black, which is actually blue.
Happy New Year!
