Random Bits

Episode 9 – 9/3/2007

Guest: Eric Meyer, CSS Guru

Background: CSS Master, Author, Teacher

Total Time: 25 minutes

What I like about doing Random Bits is the format — it’s very different from a typical interview where it’s just a question and answer session. Instead I try to have more of a conversation with the guest and let you, the audience, ease-drop in on the conversation.

This was definitely a fun interview for me! I’ve been wanting to interview Eric for awhile now but, well, I’m only a novice at CSS so I wasn’t sure I was worthy of being in his presence. 🙂

But because I didn’t want to limit you, our audience, from diving deeper into Eric’s CSS knowledge I decided to ask Tommy Olsson, friend of Search-This and CSS guru in his own right if he would join me. That way we could represent both sides of the CSS field, that of a beginner as well as someone who is very experienced.

You will be happy to hear that this will be a two part series! So what are you waiting for? This is Eric Meyer — the CSS ninja! Start listening!
