Voices That Matter Presentation & Interview

Jul 20, 2010

Published in

Last month, I was honored to speak at the Voices That Matter Web Design conference in San Francisco.

My "Practical Microformats" presentation went well, although talking about microformats in less than 30 minutes (plus leaving time for questions) was quite a challenge. You can check out my slide deck on Slideshare, if you'd like a taste of what I covered:

The deck includes tons of links to resources, as well as some DIY demos you can try to see the power of microformats. For the resources alone, the deck is worth taking a look at.

I Was YouTubed

In addition to my presentation, I also did a little interview on microformats and semantics. And, yes, it's on YouTube:

Although I can't believe I actually said piece of the puzzle perspective (must've been in an alliteration mood), I'm thrilled they filmed me from my good side and I was having a "good hair" day.

But I am sad that you can't see my t-shirt, because it's awesome:

You just ate poison t-shirt

More Interviews

Of course, it isn't all about me. Many of the authors and speakers from the conference provided interviews that you'll find interesting and informative. Visit Peachpit for the full list.

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
