Back in September 2014, Maciej Ceglowski gave a talk at the HOW Interactive Design conference in Washington, DC. The talk was called Web Design: The First 100 Years but it really didn’t have much to do with design. In fact, web design hasn’t even been around for 100 years yet, so there’s a bit of humor to this title of a talk addressed to professional designers that are able to afford a $1,545 conference.
Pronounced “MAH-tchay”, Maciej was born in Poland, but accidentally immigrated to the United States when he was six years old. With a double major in Russian and Studio Art from Middlebury College, he went on to a career in programming (naturally!). He runs several websites, including The Bedbug Registry, a website to give travelers and renters a reliable and neutral platform for reporting their encounters with obnoxious insects.
