The expression about reasonable and unreasonable people that I have found here is so cute."Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world. Unreasonable people attempt to adapt the world to themselves. All progress, therefore, depends on unreasonable people.

Okay, I gave the keynote on Monday and just now came back to check out your slides. Since we both avoided the dreaded bullet-pointing, it's hard to judge from the slides, but I think we're probably pretty close in our thinking. If nothing else, we should make sure to get together when I'm in Boston in June for AEA Boston and chew the fat over a pint, or words to that effect.

I just did a video interview for work and i grabbed the raw footage (kinda long), but i was just comparing the work satisfaction of a classic craftsman to what i do (developer [php]).

Hey Josh, I actually got pretty vocal about this last year on the IxDA list, ALA, and then brought it to my own site: Interestingly, the person I upset at ALA came over and had some dialog there. C. Wodtke and I talked about doing a project around it last Oct., but got too busy. Maybe it's a topic for ?

Great presentation. I really like the crafts parallel, as I present quite similar views and attitiude towards web desing. Sadly, I wasn't able to attend the presentation personally, and probably missed a lot of interesting points.

loving the craftsmanship analogy. i likened it to being an artisan a while ago and juxtaposed it to a mass production model (lovingly hand-crafting individual pages versus using a CMS or similar tool).

Sorry I missed the event, and your presentation; I was in India when the limited signup happened, and mostly offline. This really captures what I've been struggling with myself, which is how to balance the need for fine-tuned craftmanship vs. the sometimes diametrically opposing needs of a just-get-it done business owner. Looking forward to next time.

Excellent slides filled with great information and excellent quotes. I couldn't agree more with what you have said in your presentation. I think you could extend this to any line of work and the principles would still be the same in regards to being a true craftsman.

Heh... I gave a presentation about the exact same thing yesterday. Webdesign is a craft. (For those who understand Dutch )
