My Web Design and Development Heros
During my daily duties of scouring Twitter, I caught a post from User Agent Man titled “A Developer I Admire – Walter Zorn”.

Now that the belly aching is taken care of, and a few tweets later, we can get started on finding our solution to small screen emulator debugging.
