This innovation for innovation’s sake – as it sometimes appears to be – often makes us lose sight of what’s actually important: Solving users’ problems and perhaps even making the world a little better along the way.
In Chris’ own concise words:
“Web development is in a state of confusion. We feel we are not innovating enough, we are let down by browsers and OSes and we try to fill all these holes with home made remedies. It’s time to look at what we have, what we lost and what is a waste of our time.”
This talk is very much in the vein of his previous talk “Advancing the web without breaking it?” at beyond tellerrand last year in Düsseldorf. As usual he’s funny, thought-provoking and insightful, so the talk is worth watching in its entirety:
