net magazine - - WELCOME -

When I first took over the mag­a­zine ear­lier this year, one of the first things that grabbed my at­ten­tion – only a few months on the hori­zon – was is­sue 300. What an un­be­liev­able mile­stone, and what a plea­sure to be in the ed­i­tor’s chair for this cel­e­bra­tion of the past, present and fu­ture of web de­sign. In a world where print mag­a­zines are an en­dan­gered species, it re­ally is an achieve­ment worth cel­e­brat­ing in style. Hope­fully we’ve done it jus­tice in this special an­niver­sary edi­tion of net.

Our cover fea­ture looks at what lies ahead for the web de­sign in­dus­try across the next 300 is­sues. We asked web vi­sion­ar­ies to in­ves­ti­gate for us, and their find­ings show what The Fu­ture of Web De­sign is.

net be­gan back in 1994, and it’s hard to fathom just how much has changed since then. We’ve been there all the way, and our 30 Great­est Web Mo­ments fea­ture takes a glo­ri­ous look at the land­mark lan­guages, tools and events that shaped the web. It wouldn’t be a special edi­tion if we didn’t talk to gen­uine web roy­alty, so we’re ex­cited to have Ethan Marcotte, Jef­frey Zeldman and Håkon Wium Lie grace this is­sue. Th­ese great minds helped cre­ate the in­ter­net we love, and we can’t wait for you to digest what they’ve got to say about how we move for­ward.

Whether this is the first is­sue of net you’ve picked up or you’ve been on­board since is­sue one, thank you. En­joy the is­sue, and here’s to an­other 300.
