Webdev tats

April 20, 2005

This is what webdevs talk about for fun: if you had to get a tattoo based on any browser logo, what would it be and why?

One friend said he’d totally go for the coolness and pop-culture value of the logo over any particular virtue of the browser, and ended up plumping for the IE “e”. He commented that the Firefox logo looks like a brown and orange donut!

Another friend went totally in the other direction, and said tattoos are symbols of your beliefs rather than cool visuals. He went old-school with the Mosaic logo!

I actually go all the way for Mozilla 1.0, especially the Commie-looking star version. I loves me my dino arms!

Anyway, that’s a webdev’s idea of a great ice-breaking party question. 🙂

    You people are ridiculous.

    Or you could dress up like (the Opera dude?):

  3. Maybe you could get the Opera “O” tattoed. At least then, you could use it as a frame for something else if it all goes belly-up.

    Opening myself up to ridicule here. I’d get the original ActiveX logo. Working in Microsoft’s shadow, I was one of the first devs to play with and “master” the use of ActiveX way back in ’95 or ’96 or whenever it was. A long time ago. My coworkers (well, at least one of them) called me the ActiveG Homegirl. ActiveX popularized the idea that web pages could be rich application interfaces, and that’s where we are today.
