    Thanks for expanding on your point.

    I must add then, that I think the vast majority of those in this industry of ours do fully embrace the impermanence of the technology and have a great love of learning. Of all the problems we're facing as an industry, I kinda doubt this one ranks particularly high (if you really wanna see feet stuck in the ground, take a walk around a literature department.)

    And besides, as you said, if you've got some Dunning-Kruger going on, you'll get weeded out sooner or later.

      Thanks, Steven. Again, I have no disagreements with you here. Simply put, my article was a reminder aimed at web designers/developers who are either just beginning or have become too relaxed with not keeping up on the latest web news. In this field, you have to consider yourself a student whose learning is never finished.

      I do understand, though, that my article does not apply to everyone and there are undoubtedly a lot of creators on the web who already understand the importance of continued learning.
