The open web was an incredible resource that existed for a few decades around the turn of the century. It trivialized information dispersal, facilitating free expression. It was liberating to have your own unrestricted space online, as no one else could remove or censor the content.
Many sites featuring perfectly fine content were saddled with poor design. I took every opportunity to make text readable and navigation simple.
RESTful APIs allowed loose cooperation.
The extension facilities of web browsers brought a pipe dream of customization to fruition. This took a default interface and augmented it with expanded features or improved designs. Web developers sometimes later incorporated concepts from popular extensions into their sites to respond to market demand and benefit the majority, who browsed without extensions.
Outside of coding, I wrote music. I released 3 albums of electronic music under the name Vezquex.
