Refining My Skillset

I recently wrote a blog post for the Daylight blog about the “shrinking roles of the web professional.” I was listing to the Web Ahead podcast, episode 104, where the host and her guest talked about how simple designing and developing for the web was in the early 2000’s compared to now.
