John Allsopp

In 2000, he wrote A dao of web design for A List Apart. Described as "A manifesto for anyone working on the web" by Jeremy Keith, and cited as a key inspiration for Responsive Web Design by Ethan Marcotte. It outlined the idea that the Web is its own medium, and we must embrace its characteristics, not decry them as bugs.

For nearly 20 years John has developed software (such as Style Master CSS editor) and written books (including Developing with Web Standards), courses, tutorials, and articles for web designers and developers, and he's one of the founders of the Web Directions Conferences.

John is still as excited about the Web and all things computing as he was when he got his first computer, the venerable TRS-80, a lifetime ago.
