While it’s fun to break the rules, it sometimes helps to know the history and the rules to see which ones are worth bending, which are worth breaking, and which ones may be worth discarding altogether.

Building on other’s work can sometimes be more fruitful than trying to transform it completely.

I’m reminded of screenwriters doing so much work on a script just so that they can get screen credit. Is it really worth it?


This is the other kind of novelty-seeking web developer, one who seeks to build on the history and nature of the web instead of trying to transform it. 1
