When I was an egg on the web, before I came to do this for a living, IE and Netscape 4 were just coming out. I was at another designers house when I discovered Project Cool*.
When I first saw saturn slide on the screen, I was hooked.
Glenn Davis was the man behind this pixel epiphany. His credits and accomplishments to the web design community could go on for pages. A few that deserve mention are;
The Original Project Cool
Over the past 24 months, there has been bad craziness on the web.....
One fact got overlooked in this, Simply that, the web is a communication and collaboration tool of a different stripe. It is not TV, Radio, or Print.
There is a new spirit on the web. Weblogs, collaborative works, designs of stunning proportions, presentations of such depth and beauty to boggle the mind.
Where has Glenn been and what has he been up to?
This started out as a conversation started by zeldman at dreamless.org [dead site] . One thing led to another and here it is.
Astounding Websites [dead site] is the name and your opinion is the game. No, this is not another site that points at the same two dozen non-commercial sites that people point to when they talk about Great websites. There is a area for Commercial sites, a self-promotion area, a general area and the [NAG] Nearly Anything Goes. "Asbestos underwear recommended" here.
If you do this for a living, you have seen sites influenced by Glenn's code or words. I became a website designer because I could, I don't play well with others, and I am making a living doing it. The fact that I love the internet is gravy, and Glenn Davis helped me do it!
Thank You Glenn!!
