Anil Dash on the Web’s Missing Pieces

[View Source] was one of the most effective technology teaching tools ever created. And no surprise, since the web was invented for the purpose of sharing knowledge.

That’s where I started. I remember there was a small golden age of writing little notes to whomever was browsing your source. It was like finding the carpenter’s name scratched in the bottom of a bench.

I’m not going to stop concatenating and minifying my sites, but perhaps leaving the original files/partials/whatever available to browse would be a step in that direction. Although, that’s probably what Github is used for these days. Another distant step removed from the web of old, but it’s where we’re at today.

Comments?

Nope. Don't worry about leaving them here, instead hit me up @TRST_Blog and share your thoughts.
