This week we were joined by Jeffrey Zeldman, a man who scarcely needs an introduction around these parts. In the early days of the web Jeffery was influential in pushing web standards forward and getting us to the happy place we are in now. He’s also the man behind the web magazine A List Apart, the web conference An Event Apart, and the book label A Book Apart. We talk about (roughly in order):

- (25:57) -Was A List Apart one of the first websites to every use CSS (floats) for layout? (Todd Fahrner and Tantek Çelik are heros)
- (35:01) – What is the biggest change you’ve seen in the industries history?
