This web site was community before there was community. This joint had a BB before 2000.

What you don't know about this 'webmaster' is that he has always encouraged involvement within structure so content remains relevant but the input is directly the users. He gave us a choice. Whats more he encouraged and nurtured people. Does your community do this?

A user here named Vipe designed the style and my little buddy Gerry modestly helped code chunks along with others. We all contribute to program suggestions and Bob maintains the db within an inch of its life.

Bashing what is history is never a way to validate the present. History and progress share the same future.
So I would like to extend an invitation to contribute some suggestions for applications and how to make this community stronger.

I don't get it--why the pic of sc up top there? An example of which point? It comes directly after "Usability and accessibility were a luxury, and many website providers ignored them in an attempt to control the way the medium was used." so is he dissing SC?

Yeah I think he looked at SC as being 'Old School'.

I laughed then I gots a little irradiated wrote Smashing and suggested they interview you. Don't worry I was dignified.

I have to reply to him but it seems to be a matter of curation and that every tool is a wrench. Trend or not.

To clarify, not all information is social or user input.

What the author seemed to suggest is that one is progressive the other is "way we used to do things"

How information is formatted is dictated by the information and not by trend.
