This years Future of Web Apps conference was an absolute blast, I’m hoping to give a full write up of my experience, but for now, here’s a list of my favourite quotes from the two days.

Don’t build anything you don’t need for launch.
jQuery is like cocaine. One line will get you hooked.
Metaprogramming is like trying to do crack cocaine responsibly.
The web is too important to be owned by one vendor.
Bruce Lawson on Canvas vs. Flash
The great thing about standards is that there’s so many of them.
Aza Raskin on the number of OpenID providers
Marketing is the cancer on the nutsack of creativity.
Look after your users’ best interest, not yours.
If you keep pounding someone, they will come.
Customer service is not a fucking little “feedback” link in the corner of your website!
