Out and about as the flames burn out
~ 11 July 2005 ~
Having just returned from vacation, I was surprised as I awoke this morning to return to duties and happened upon the Vivabit / WSA discussion. Engaging, to say the least.
It might take me a bit of time to wade through all 40 comments (as of this writing), but in the meantime, allow me to give a shout-out to Patrick Griffiths. He had the audacity to request a rather unconventional layout and the tenacity to then actually code the thing. In the end, I’d say he orchestrated a rather fine bit of work.
Even more impressive is the fact that he and I were collaborating on the final design right up until two days before @media began — which, of course, he also orchestrated. Insane, but very well done, Patrick.
