The Bleeding Edge is Where You Bleed

It's All in the Delivery

The Really Technical Edge of the Bleeding Edge

The world has changed since the original edition of "Web Pages That Suck." The bleeding edge has moved from the world of Web design to the world of Software design. It's a new and uglier world--and the world of Web design isn't so pretty either.

We're going to look at some of the technologies that are changing the Web. Because the bleeding edge is mostly software based, they occur behind the scene--well, actually many occur behind the cheery face of your browser. Like all change, some of them are good and some are bad.

Instead of just describing the technology, I'm going to speculate where it's heading, discuss its usefulness relative to what you're trying to accomplish, and give you info so you can determine whether or not it's worth your time to donate your blood to the cause.

I'm a lot of things, but I'm not a programmer so I've called on noted programmer Dean Peters to speak "ex cathedra" <g> for me.
