Avalon Star: CSS Reboot’s Lost Identity
This was the first Reboot occasion that I actually had a site (relatively) ready to participate with. Sadly, this year’s May 1st CSS reboot was more an afterthought than an event in celebration of web standards and creativity.
Lots of factors contribute to the dud that was the CSS Reboot:
Lack of promotion by new CSS Reboot owner
Lack of love and devotion from new CSS Reboot owner
Web standards now really are the standard for design, reducing the need to gather ‘round the cause
Generic “let’s throw a CMS with a default template and call it a website” website did nothing to celebrate the content it was supposed to distribute
