  1. Couldn’t agree more about communication being one of the most important if not the most important skills to have in any web profession.

    There are so many different types of people, skill sets and ways of communicating on the web that things can fall apart very quickly.

    No matter what you are (designer, developer, writer, engineer, etc.. ), being able to communicate to others under this umbrella of “Web Professional” is imperative.

  2. The interviews are so chopped up that it sounds kind of like a robot speaking (soundbite extravaganza), but great advice nonetheless. Thanks Jeffrey!

  3. A bit? It is un-listen-able. Likeadesignwithnowhitespace. I tried leaving a comment on their site, but no way to do it without registering — you should let them know.

  4. All,

    Bill Cullifer here with WebProfessional.org. I agree that the editing of the interview with Jeffrey was a bit aggressive. In fact, poorly done on my part I’d say. For the record, the edits had less to do with lessening the timing of the podcast and more to do with the “pops and hisses” of the recording. That said, no more excuses and as an FYI, I’ve made another pass at the post and just uploaded the new flv and mp3 now. Its beer thirty here in California and I’m heading on over to e bay to trade in my IRiver on a better model. :–)

  5. A profession’s community always “being there” for each other is definitely a rarity. Very good point that is easily overlooked. When I search online about how to do something in particular with web development, I almost take it for granted that someone out there has the answer or will get me on the right track soon.
