John Gruber does not seem impressed with sxsw either

John Gruber does not seem impressed with sxsw either. “But the nebulous nature of art puts more emphasis on the need for speakers to add structure, clarity, and preparation to their presentations.” How do I not fall in love with that quote?

I did not know I was in such good company in sxsw disappointment. If so many people think this lowly about sxsw 2007 I would not be surprised if attendance drops next year. A conference can't run on parties alone.

SXSW: Dave Shea (Hypocrite)

Here's a choice quote from Dave Shea at SXSW:

“I don't like looking at web pages in print”

I'm so glad that Dave has such a high brow view of print design. If you like to learn more you can read his book The Zen of CSS Design: Visual Enlightenment for the Web where every single page has a website on it.

While Dave Shea is above looking at websites in a book he's not above trying to sell them to the masses. I'm so glad I bought his book now. I want a refund.
