Anders has made an intro to web design for the media department in Oslo that’s excellent: no coding (plenty of that elsewhere) but instead a discussion of rhetoric, goals, organisation, architecture, colours, links and so on. There are lots of images, links to sites exemplifying various designs or concepts, suggestions for further reading, and it’s both simple and rich in detail, with a lot of very practical and also theoretically foundational information.

I’ve instantly added it to the curriculum for next year’s web design students. They’ll love having it in their native language, and it’s excellent quality. That, a book of HTML and CSS, and some essays and sites online. Should do it.

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology.
