The Definition of Web Design

“What is Web Design and Where’s Its Canon?” seems to be the meta-meme of the moment: Bokardo replies to Vit, and Zeldman checks in too.  There may be a ways to go until a positive definition comes about (Zeldman attempts it, and he’s halfway there, but something feels like its missing), but its encouraging to hear a common theme emerge:  web design is not graphic design, and cannot be judged by graphic-design standards any more than graphic design can be judged by the standards of, say, fine art.
