The Machine is Us/ing Us
I have seen this video before, but like a good movie I get more out of it each time I see it. The video intrigues me because as a web developer I feel I am pulled in two directions.
One is simply to get the job done as fast as possible for my clients. The majority of them don’t care if I use proper xhtml or follow the rules. What they care about is getting their website done on time and on budget.
The second pull is my own desire to make websites that meet web standards, are functional and provide people with better ways of communicating. I test in multiple browsers, validate code and try to stay up to date on the latest trends and ways of creating websites.
If only I had all the time and money it would take to do things to my satisfaction.
