Web People Rock

Shared in Resources on July 22, 2019

The web industry has a reputation for attracting, and sometimes cultivating, people who would find themselves at the fringes of the normal world. Now I do admit that as the industry has grown and matured, it’s difficult not to bump into another pixel-worker in day-to-day life. Somehow, 90% of the people I’ve met in this industry have been incredible in some form.

There’s a palatable sense of friendliness, acceptance, motivation, and care that seems to be carried by most people in this industry. This feeling is one of my favorite parts of calling myself a web-worker. Seriously, most people in web rock.

I’ve started gathering a list of people I highly recommend paying attention to, getting to know, and to appreciate what they’ve done for all of their peers in the web industry. By no means is this the end-all be-all of web lists.

This list is going to include names such as:

  • Chris Coyier
  • Sarah Parmenter
  • Ethan Marcotte
  • Denise Jacobs
  • Wes Bos
  • NPJ
  • Jeffrey Zeldman
  • Chris Do
  • David Walsh
  • Eric Meyer
  • Rachel Andrew
  • Jen Simmons
  • Brad Frost
  • and so many more

Seriously folks, you’re all incredible. Thank you for everything you’ve done for our industry and all of those people you’ve helped grow to be the next generation of pixel-workers.
