Attention, web design geeks, contest fans, standards freaks, HTML5ophiles, CSSistas, grammarians, bookworms, UXers, designers, developers, and budding Haikuists. Can you do this?

Do not tell me I
Am source of your browser woes.
Template validates.

Write a web standards haiku (like that one), and post it on Twitter with the hashtag #bbd4 between now and November 30th—which happens to be the fourth international Blue Beanie Day in support of Web Standards.

Winning haikus will receive free books from Peachpit/New Riders (“Voices That Matter”) and A Book Apart.

Ethan Marcotte, co-author of Designing With Web Standards 3rd Edition and I will determine the winners.

Enter as many haikus as you like. Sorry, only one winning entry per person. Now get out there and haiku your heart out!

See you on Blue Beanie Day.

P.S. An ePub version of Designing With Web Standards 3rd Edition is coming soon to a virtual bookstore near you. Watch this space.

  1. I don’t use Twitter and I barely log in my Facebook account, and no, I don’t have a blog either.

    Have you guys ever thought of Web Designers that are not into social media… yet support 110% web standards?

    How are we supposed to have a chance to win, if any?


    PS. I support web standards 110%… of course.

  2. Ricardo — you just described the display:none of Web ID. Take a more relative position and stop blocking if you want to be classy. A sense of whimsy is !important.

  3. Which haikus won!? I entered like 30 of my best (I’m awesome at haikus) so I want to see what was better than mine :)
