ICYMI: This is a motherfucking website and I wrote a motherfucking conference article about it

(Disclaimer: motherfuckingwebsite.com was not made by me!)

motherfuckingwebsite.com short paperThe post in which I review motherfuckingwebsite.com and propose some changes to make it even more perfect (see here) is the most widely read post on my blog by far. To date, it has received 8,715 views, with the front page of my blog being in second place having 884 views. Most of the organic traffic I receive from search engines ends up on that very article.

What you probably haven’t noticed yet: Based on the blog post, I also wrote a short paper about my review and the proposed changes, which was accepted at the 2014 International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE) and presented during its poster session. My conference article has now been published in the Lecture Notes on Computer Science series by Springer and is also available via http://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-319-08245-5_44. I think this is a nice paper to cite in your work, just for the sake of citing it. I mean … who wouldn’t want to cite a paper about motherfuckingwebsite.com? 😉

P.S.: In case you wonder why I had the more or less stupid idea to actually write a conference article about the motherfucking website: I was slightly inspired by the following conversation: https://twitter.com/michinebeling/status/440527478009122816.

Device-agnostic design poster presented @ ICWE 2014From my original post about redesigning motherfuckingwebsite.com (see here), I have created a poster along with a corresponding short paper, which have been presented at the 2014 International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE).

The short paper will be included in the conference proceedings published by Springer: Maximilian Speicher (2014). “Paving the Path to Device-agnostic and Content-centric Web Design”. In Proc. ICWE (Posters).
