Web design on the tram.
I was on the tram the other day. These two young gentlemen were having a discussion about a website they were designing. One of them wanted the whole thing to be one big Flash application. The other one wanted to follow a more standards-compliant route with HTML, CSS and possibly some AJAX -- but used in moderation.
For some reason they decided to involve me in their conversation. (Might have been the hoodie with a large "Blogger" logo on the front, I don't know).
So I gave them my opinion. I told them that putting the whole web-site in a flash app is just about the most idiotic thing I can think of.
Of course, one of them looked all triumphant in a I-told-you-so-manner. The other guy was annoyed. After some moments of grumbling he says: -"so who are you to say what is idiotic? it's not like you work for Google or something".
"Right" I said, and put my earbuds back in to listen to Molly Wood rant about something.
