A SXSW Story

One of the things about SXSW Interactive is that you are constantly meeting new people. One day at breakfast, I was introduced to a friend of a friend, who said:

“Your book is dangerous.”

“That’s kind of you to say,” I replied, “but exactly how is Designing With Web Standards dangerous?”

“Oh,” he said. “You didn’t write Rework?”

  1. Lol, I bet your friend is good with all the new ‘Web 2.0′ catch phrases but probably has little understanding of any of them.

  2. Awesome.

    DWWS is dangerous. It could get me fired. Or hired. Depends on how you look at it.

    Rework probably is as well (I haven’t gotten to my copy yet).

    In the future maybe you’ll make the banned books list.

  3. I just looked up Seth Godin’s image, and there would be no mistaken identity. I thought he might have a beard or a beanie or something similar. At least, the very least, the person did acknowledge you as a published author. You can name your next book “Designing With Web Standards: Reworked”.
