Skills swapped

Last night, I enjoyed the SkillSwap presentation by Jeremy on ‘CSS based design’. There was a full house, with folks representing disciplines from techie to Flash, and I reckon everyone took away a lot from the talk. Interestingly, a good deal of time was spent covering semantic markup as the key to successful CSS design. This helped answer some tough real-world questions, including ‘Why CSS layout?’, ‘Why bother with validation?’ and ‘Why not use divs throughout?’

The overiding memory, however, will be of Jeremy navigating PowerPoint presentations and scrolling through BBEdit on his iBook using a mobile phone and Bluetooth.
