“What about inexperienced Web designers? Lock up their copies of FrontPage and Photoshop until they have finished reading this book â€” twice!”

After months of procrastination I finally decided to launch my blog.
I believe that the web as a medium is still young and still has more room to grow. We are all students and we still have much to learn about the web and how it can be utilized in different ways.
To understand and learn more about the web and web design in general I decided to launch this web site that will hopefully engage people to exchange ideas through this site.
