Listening to Channel 9

posted by DL Byron on April 06, 2004

Channel 9 gets slashdotted and quickly taken to task for the markup. I'm sure Channel 9 will correct those problems, Scoble's already recognized it, but I wonder why they would launch with bad code? In the past, say around 1999, nobody really cared (well some of us did), but now when your site breaks in Mozilla you're going to hear about it. Nearly every week I read about new mainstream sites moving to Standard-based design. It's remarkable that web standards are actually becoming an expected standard and if Slashdot is a microcosm that's very good news.

Update: Check the comment thread on Scoble's post for the code problem explanation and positive reponse.
