Non-Breaking Space Show

There's a new podcast in town, The Non-Breaking Space Show!

Hosted by Christopher Schmitt and Dave McFarland — with the editing and production talent of Chris Enns — the show features interviews with “best and brightest on the web.”

Already the show has talked with such great and talented guests as Ethan Marcotte, Paul Irish and Chris Coyier. And the third episode is an interview with me!

A Well-Rounded Discussion

It was a complete pleasure talking with Dave and Chris, who also happen to be some of the best and brightest on the web themselves. We had a great discussion that went from microformats to freelancing, with a lot of info and laughs in between.

We first talked about structured data and the differences between microdata, microformats and RDFa. We also discussed schema.org and my personal opinions about its impact on microformats, search and semantic data.

The discussion then shifted to my current adventure freelancing. I talked about some of the challenges I've had getting started, what I've learned in (almost) two years and several of my favorite resources for managing my business.

Have a listen!

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
