This week we were joined by Tim Smith, a designer doing both freelance work and in-house design work as well as soon-to-be magazine publisher. This is a crossover episode, as both Dave and Chris have been on Tim’s excellent podcast The East Wing. We talk about (roughly in order):


Brian Franco’s book An Illustrated Guide to Front-End Development

Sam Stephenson: You Are Not Your Code (relevant to last show’s talk about Prototype)

Responsive URL’s (a joke, folks)

Andy Clarke and Jen Simmons on The Web Ahead talking weblebrities at conferences.

Q & A

Should browsers natively support CSS preprocessor syntax?

Websites are getting fat. What can we do?

Is there tech we can use to help with HIPAA compliance?

Should there / can there be print buttons on mobile websites?

How does Tim keep on keeping on?
