I guess you know you’ve made it when someone…
- Typo-squats one of your URLs. See: http://www.csszendgarden.com/. Notice the extra ‘d’. (Thanks Alan)
- Builds a Windows app to address your complete and utter failure of an on-site navigation. (We all know by now why I can’t change the HTML on-site, right? Hence this kludge to make it easier to navigate.)
I’m more just surprised by the latter than anything, since no one wrote me. It’s not a terrible idea, and was already done twice prior by other sites. But I was forced to block one after the creator put up Google ads. Hey, if I’m not making a dime…
And to be completely fair, there are tons of great ideas people have spun off, from Gigastyle to CSS Zen Sentiero to Camaleon CSS. And the latest comes from Microsoft, no less, in the form of their Mix design contest. With direct credit too, thanks! (If you enter though, look out: they may just have got me to help judge…)
Not much I can do to stop anyone of course, since I have no trademark or any legal protection of the name (not that I’d want to go that route anyway). But, there’s enough mind share in the term ‘(technology abbreviation) Zen Garden’ at this point that I wouldn’t mind avoiding the potential confusion. It would certainly be nice. And I thank you!
