Spent most of yesterday in a cloud. It was most certainly not Cloud Nine.
It’s been a long long time since we spoke through this blog. If you’ve missed us, hello again. We’ve been really busy on Main St. in Kansas City.
We’re back. Nice to see you again.
Lovely day for a hike
The women I know, by and large, work in tech. They’re your designer, your developer, your content strategist, your user researcher. They’re our authors. And more often than any of us wants to believe, they’re getting groped at tech meetups. They’re receiving death and rape threats for speaking at a conference. Their bodies are being made the targets of office jokes.
They’re being talked down to, fired, catcalled, harassed, abused, and raped—and blamed for it, too.
But of course, that’s not our subject matter. A List Apart is about publishing the Next Big Thing in design. It’s about shaping standards. It’s about the business of building websites.
And yet. When I look at those articles that most influenced my career (and probably many of yours), I see our mission, clear as day: to encourage a more thoughtful, curious, and engaged web industry—one that pushes past easy answers and encourages ongoing growth and learning.
