Web development: 2012 & forward

Functionn is a blog on open source web development. Today, they published an interview with me and several other people (including DailyJS’s Alex R. Young) covering various web-development-related topics. They asked the following questions:
  1. Tell us a little bit about yourself. How has 2012 been to you? What have you been working on lately?
  2. Now that 2012 is over, what do you think were some of the most exciting developments in the world of web development this year?
  3. What web development tool/library/framework/mindset shift has impressed you most in 2012? (You can talk about as many as you wish here).
  4. Which single tool/library/framework/mindset shift would you recommend other developers to use/put to work?
  5. What most excites, scares and disappoints you about the web today?
  6. One word to describe the web as it is today?
  7. How do you see the web change in 2013 and beyond?
  8. What do you look forward to in 2013?
  9. If you had the superpower to change something in the world, what would you change? :-)
The answer to question (1) should look familiar to people who have read my blog post “Looking back on 2012”, but everything else is new.
