Andrei fired off round two of “Gurus vs. Bloggers”, and good news! I played on the guru team by proxy, and was defeated by Dave Shea‘s proxy, more or less as I’d hoped I’d have the chance to do after round one was played. Andrei was nice enough to hem and haw about which one ought to win, but honestly, there wasn’t much contest. The Zen Garden won two SXSW Web awards including Best In Show, after all, not to mention the awe and respect of Web design folks the world over. css/edge, at best, earned awe and respect. In any case, I am honored to have been so thoroughly owned by the man Andrei calls “one of [my] best students.” Mr. Shea, I bow to you.
In his tongue-in-cheek commentary, Andrei said:
Maybe if Meyer had used orange for CSS Edge, because orange is after all the new black, I would be able to swing the vote the other way.
I don’t know—low-contrast orange doesn’t really seem much better than low-contrast blue, does it?
