People tend to forget or never knew that one of the fundamental premises of the “web” was to provide a simple way for anyone to easily publish themselves. Back in the day, publishing was a complex endeavor that most ordinary people were restricted from and published knowledge was something that had a significant barrier to entry. Certainly easier than it was thousands of years ago, but still far from simple.

HTML was envisioned as a simple, markup language that anyone could use to create, format and link documents together into related, contextual information. In the beginning it was pretty much that simple. Just learn to use a few basic tags and you could create content for the web. You’d still need a technician or some technical skill to get it on to a web server somewhere so that others could see it. That distribution part was still a little tricky.

In the early mid-era the web started to make itself much more complex. People were no longer satisfied to be able to read plain text on a gray background and the demand for media and interactive website’s grew. The trouble was that our technology to bring what the people demanded was very immature. Programmers and designers has to go though extreme contortions to keep their sites working as intended on the multitude of platforms and web browsers of which every aspect of which was in early developmental stages with incomplete features, inconsistent behavior and bugs galore.

What a mess.

Now, the distribution aspect of web publishing is as easy or as hard as you would like it to be depending on your needs. As far as easy goes there are dozens of hosted blogging system available that anyone can access. These system simplify the process of getting your content onto the web into the filling of forms.

In my mind, the web has finally fulfilled its promise of being a platform where anyone can easily self publish. It is the technology behind this ease of use that fascinates me.

Typography

Typography is the art and technique of arranging type in order to make the language it forms most appealing to transparent learning and recognition. The arrangement of type involves the selection of typefaces, point size, line length, leading (line spacing), adjusting the spaces between groups of letters (tracking) and adjusting the space between pairs of letters (kerning). Type design is a closely related craft, which some consider distinct and others a part of typography; most typographers do not design typefaces, and some type designers do not consider themselves typographers. — via Wikipedia/Typography

Typography is one area that has had a significant impact of the readability, design and appearance of web sites. A relatively late development, being able to choose any font you would like has been limited up until the last few years. Now we have access to extensive font libraries such as Adobe Edge Fonts. Icon/symbol font such as Font Awesome allow us to perform mighty tricks by just including an additional line of code into our sites.
