Kill Your CMS

WYSIWTF

THE ERA of “desktop publishing” is over. Same goes for the era where we privilege the desktop web interface above all others. The tools we create to manage our content are vestiges of the desktop publishing revolution, where we tried to enable as much direct manipulation of content as possible. In a world where we have infinite possible outputs for our content, it’s time to move beyond tools that rely on visual styling to convey semantic meaning. If we want true separation of content from form, it has to start in the CMS.

Web Standards Project (WaSP) 1998 – 2013

Our Work Here is Done

Thanks to the hard work of countless WaSP members and supporters (like you), Tim Berners-Lee’s vision of the web as an open, accessible, and universal community is largely the reality.

Better information layout (Sports)

This post on a more minimalist information design (using the Texas Rangers website as an example) exemplifies why I started this blog.  I came across it some months ago while browsing and thought it interesting.  Now, as I look to move the Friends of Stuyvesant Baseball website into WordPress I wanted to find it again and see if there was anything that would be useful to me.  Thankfully I remembered that the writer was a Texas Rangers fan and a search on “texas rangers website redesign” found it as the first listing.  But with this blog I now have a place to stash interesting things so I can find them a bit more easily when I want them.
