Matt is boycotting Lockergnome because they are taking a step back to the mid-1990s with the HTML code on the Lockergnome.com website, foregoing standards such as CSS for layout. I always got the impression that Lockergnome’s content was intended for tech hobbyists — not so much for people who work for a living in the tech and online worlds. (And I’m mostly a tinkerer myself when it comes to my own website projects.) It seems like they have a responsibility to do the right thing to set a good example.
And speaking of Matt, I finally get to meet him at South by Southwest’s Interactive Festival this weekend. My plane gets in late on Saturday so I miss all the evening festivities Friday night and the first day of the conference on Saturday. But spending 3 1/2 days in Austin is a lot better than the zero I spent there last year.
