Phrase of the day: blink-tag era

I thought this was a funny way to describe someone who has been involved in web design for a long time:

blink-tag era web enthusiast

I remember the web before there was a blink tag, when I had to add a disclaimer like the following:

Your browser must support tables to view this page

    To be fair, I don’t think that’s a description for someone who has been involved in web design for some time, but rather for someone whose development of web development (gah, I just used the word “development” twice in a row!) abilities ceased to evolve as of 1998. Anyway, I think I’m definitely going to start using that term.

    I suppose it should probably be “pre-blink-tag era” to really make any sense. After all, aren’t we still in the blink tag era? It may be a depracated element, but it probably still works in most browsers.
