Thursday, April 30th, 2009

In the slides I covered the history of web development, what we did wrong and what we should avoid in the future. I also covered the YUI and how it embodies some of the priniciples great web development is based on.

SEO and Accessibility – a talk

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

Here is a talk I just gave at an internal SEO conference about the overlap of SEO and Accessibility. The main consensus is that if you look at it closely, the two are really trying to solve the same problem, most of the time our approach is what makes it tricky.
