I have hated that term ever since it was invented. Anyways, here’s a fun FoxTrot. By Chris Tingom Principal of Tornado Design, a Phoenix, AZ based web consultancy View Archive → ← VitalStream → MOO 3 replies on “FoxTrot on The Ultimate Web Page” ‘Web Page’ does seem rather ancient. I don’t even like the term ‘Web Designer’ anymore because every Joe Schmoe on the planet thinks that because he’s got a MySpace page that he customized, that he knows how to design for the web. Schmuck. …When a business owner tells you they need a ‘web page’ for their company, I always laugh a little inside. If someone asks for a web page give them one. Create one page with a bit of info on it. If they ask why there aren’t any pages, remind them that they asked for a web ‘page’. What they would be hoping for would be a ‘web site’ but i still think this term is a little dated. Possibly refering to a site on the internet could be similar to refering to real world property and therefore ‘web sites’ could be called ‘online properties’. Then instead of being a ‘web designer’ one could be called an ‘online design consultant’ and a ‘web developer’ could be called an ‘online property manager’.
