To discriminating Web surfers, something five years old is practically prehistoric. So how has
managed to stay as fresh and relevant as the day it was born in May 1995? Credit design guru Jeffrey Zeldman and his keen take on Web trends for making his site a must-read for design pros. Features such as “Ask Dr. Web” and “A List Apart” offer better writing than the typical holier-than-thou design dirges that clog the Web. Not a designer? Sections such as “The Ad Graveyard,” devoted to rejected advertisements, will keep you entertained. And Zeldman’s collections of icons and pictures can make the look of your desktop as distinctive as the appearance of your Mac. It’s proof that some things get better with age–even on the Web.
