None of my home or university mates work on the web and I’m often asked “But what is it you actually do?” to which I reply “Web standards” and give as good an explanation I can normally along this lines of “Buildings have to be built to standards right? Well so do websites…”.
I normally get muted nods and I think my Mum has just given up.
Fail enough really because as far as they’re concerned what I do is non-standard; I’m not a film maker, writer, retailer, doctor, project manager or any of those professions that have been around a while.
Over to you Mr Zeldman…
