Understand The Web · Ben Ward

by 3 others

There exists on the web a collective memory problem. It’s a famous fault in software engineers to instinctively favour reinvention over reuse, not just because they are unfamiliar with what came before, but because they misunderstand why it came before. This is a rule that is important to understand, so that it can be broken. It is not well understood, yet it is regularly broken.


Want to know if your ‘HTML application’ is part of the web? Link me into it. Not just link me to it; link me into it. Not just to the black-box frontpage. Link me to a piece of content. Show me that it can be crawled, show me that we can draw strands of silk between the resources presented in your app. That is the web: The beautiful interconnection of navigable content. If your website locks content away in a container, outside the reach of hyperlinks, you’re not building any kind of ‘web’ app. You’re doing something else.

Futur du Web, rien à dire

"Quel est le futur du Web ? Comment vois-tu le Web dans le futur ? C'est une question qu'on me pose régulièrement. "

L'élément IMG, un peu d'histoire

by 2 others
"Il y a quelques jours, j'ai eu une discussion à propos de l'histoire de l'élément IMG et de son introduction dans HTML. La discusssion a commencé avec une phrase qui m'a étonnée : « Tim-Berners Lee était opposé à la création de l'élément IMG. » Il est souvent bon de connaître la génèse de certains éléments et de replonger dans l'histoire."
