Web Design Misconceptions and Misinformation

Molly Holzschlag has written an exceptional and fascinating post on her perceptions from Web Design World 2004 conference in Boston, web design world cool-down. The great news is that she sees a positive shift happening in overall mood, feelings of job security, and there was a good turnout, as companies seem to paying for conferences again. In her post, Molly also clarifies many of the misconceptions she found at the conference about terminology, Web design concepts, and design approaches. It truly is amazing to see such misperceptions and misinformation out there, which I’ve seen myself, too.
