Dinner with Joel Spolsky

Last night I had dinner with Joel Spolsky, after he and his partner selected - of all strange places - Norway as a country to visit for a plain-as-vanilla vacation, seeing the fjords, the mountains, the sheep and the cheese. Joel thought someone in Norway (probably amongst the sheep and the cheese somewhere) might read his site and stuff, so he announced "Meet me there!". We did.

It was good fun. Talking with Spolsky was nice; we shared a lot of the same ideas and got on well. I was told that a) Spolsky is an internet celeb, and b) has written several books; I didn't know either. Anyone read his books?

Anyways, I had a good chat to a lot of other people as well, and one thing that I wrote (not that long ago) was a best-practice guide to writing HTML for programmers, and in the conversation this seemed to be high on a lot of peoples wish-list. I'll dig it out, polish it, and publish it ASAP. Thanks for the reminder.
