Happy Birthday, css Zen Garden

May 7 2004

One year ago today, Mezzoblue author Dave Shea presented his baby to the world — the css Zen Garden was born.

Not of legal age to drink or drive by a long shot, it's influence has been irreplaceable already. It's been Exhibit CSS to prove those who claimed/believed CSS stands for Creativity Stop Sign wrong. Besides that, it's been a source of inspiration to those who practice webdesign themselves. Not in the last place does this apply to yours truly, hence my participation.

I have to admit I wasn't really aware of the upcomming of this event (and apparently I wasn't the only one), so I didn't have the time to head into town and find a nice present, so I leave you with a sneak preview of what I started working on a few months ago (note the emphasize on started).

Thanks, Dave, for initiating this wonderfull project — which I truly believe has helped the web standards evangelism a great deal — and thanks, all those great webdesigners who have participated and made the Garden blossom as it has and will.
