UnBeige Looks Back: The Year In Those People Who Aren’t Men

98039 Contemp WOMEN SYMBOL SIGN 3x9.jpg

We closed last year out with the bonus question asked at the now-famous panel on book design at the 92nd Street Y: What about that glass “cieling” in design?

This year it seems we were able to discuss the issue in a much more civil manner. Nicolai Ouroussoff had his theories about why it’s not happening for female architects, Zeldman covered women in the web design world, yet, on the other hand, we wondered why the entire craft industry seems to be populated exclusively by ladies.

Then all of a sudden–and completely by accident, they insist–mediabistro.com put together a panel on the future of design that featured five speakers, all women. Was it really that hard, then?

UnBeige is counting down our biggest stories of 2007, all day, right here.

Jeffrey Zeldman Presents: The Web in Review

From the man who taught the world how to blog, that prettier websites also work better, that web standards are not optional, and that at one time, nothing ruled more than a Hitchcock pose with some serious rocker hair, comes this full-on retrospective of the web, Zeldman-style. On the 12th anniversary of firing up Zeldman.com, the man has posted a bunch of oldies but goodies:

·Daily Reports since 1997, packaged into nice digestible chunks

·Check out that yellow, yee-hah!

·“Experiments” in 1995

·15 Minutes, famous interviews with famous people

·Icons you would have killed for in the ’90s.

Congrats, Zeldy, nobody does it better.

Who’s Doing What on the Web? Survey Says!

Following up on our post about Jeffrey Zeldman‘s “Women and Web Design” article, we have another dispatch from the man. A List Apart is conducting its first annual Web Design Survey:

In all the years people have been creating websites, nobody has actually bothered to collect data on who does the work, under what job titles, using which skills, for what kinds of compensation.

The important thing is that we will finally have some data on the designers, developers, IAs and content specialists whose work shoulders the new information age.

If you’re an English speaker, the survey will take you 10 minutes or less and, as an added incentive (beyond doing your good design deed of the day, of course) you could win a free seat at An Event Apart, a 30GB iPod, or other cool stuff.
