2007, Bloom of Social Media
ICQ , Xanga , WordPress and Facebook start becoming popular in Hong Kong.
It was the first year I started using Photoshop & Illustrator.
Soon I discovered I got not much talents in drawing, then I went back on developing websites and themes for WordPress & Xanga.
With intense self-study on W3C HTML standards, I realized that sites made by Dreamweaver are still as problematic as Frontpage,
therefore I start using plain text editor to make websites, and it's still my favorite.
JS Frameworks like jQuery and Prototype were introduced to web developers, which saved me a lot of time writing complex effects.
Different brands of browsers were introduced to the market (finally escaped from Internet Explorer), making web development more challenging.
16:9 aspect ratio became the standards of the display, which gave more display areas for websites (though most of the websites still center its contents to have maximum compatibility for 4:3 monitors).
p.s. Internet Explorer, which did not give a shit about HTML standards, was still the mainstream, giving hard time for web developers.
p.s. spent too much time on World of Warcraft...
